CBS has postponed the premiere of its Wednesday-night comedies King of Queens and Center of the Universe (thank you Lord, er, Les), originally slated to debut this week, until Oct. 20. The network will fill the 9-10 pm hour with CSI repeats and an Oct. 13 presidential debate. Why the three-week delay? I can only assume Eye execs feared Queens' loyal viewership would reject John Goodman's god-awful Universe and then no one would be left to watch CSI: NY at 10 pm. That's just a hunch.
