It’s only Monday, meaning if you’re already tired of the many 2015 Upfront renewals, cancellations and pickups, CBS is not for you. The eye network has given pickup orders to over a dozen of its existing series, including The Good Wife, Elementary, The Odd Couple, and telling move for CSI’s Cyber spinoff.
Now that 'How I Met Your Mother' spinoff 'How I Met Your Dad' seems to have fallen through, the CBS lineup looks a little bereft of anything we might normally follow. And now with CBS' acquisition of Thursday Night Football, the full fall 2014 schedule looks a little jumbled with 'The Big Bang Theory' filling in for 'HIMYM' Mondays, while 'Elementary' and others move to October to accommodate football.
Among the last, but certainly not least, the eye network CBS has officially gotten in on the Upfront 2014 game by releasing their schedule for the fall, and full trailers for the newest series. Few major surprises (minus that 'How I Met Your Dad' pass), but take a look at the future of CBS with new trailers for Halle Berry's 'Extant,' sporting family sitcom 'The McCarthys' and more!
Year after year, this becomes almost painfully unsurprising. Following an impressive three-season renewal for CBS comedy juggernaut 'The Big Bang Theory,' the network granted an additional 18 renewals to its drama and comedy lineup for 2014-15, including (but not limited to) 'Two and a Half Men,' '2 Broke Girls,' 'Elementary,' 'NCIS' and 'The Good Wife.' So, who's missing?
Summer may be gone, but who cares? It’s TV time! Fall TV 2013 will prove among the more exciting seasons in recent years, including everything from Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ premiere to the return of our beloved ‘Walking Dead’ for season 4, but with so many options to choose from, which TV is really must-see? We break down the 20 can’t-miss premieres from the ABC to the NBC to the BBC, including those that will have us talking for months on end, and a score of saucy secrets from each of Fall TV’s best!
Whether you count yourself an 'Elementary' or 'Sherlock' fan, you had to admit that the CBS procedural managed to distinguish itself quite a bit from its spiritual predecessor, and with a much more accessible schedule. Case in point, the first photos from 'Elementary' season 2 premiere "Step Nine" have hit the web, featuring our first look at 'Amazing Spider-Man' star Rhys Ifans as Mycroft!
Just yesterday we learned of another classic Sherlock Holmes character to debut in 'Elementary' season 2, atop the reveal that 'The Amazing Spider-Man' star Rhys Ifans would take the iconic role of Mycroft Holmes for the London-set premiere this fall. Now, CBS has revealed the premiere title for 'Elementary' season 2's September 26 debut, and provided us our first look at Holmes and Watson back on the case!
The first season of CBS' modern Sherlock Holmes adaptation 'Elementary' gave us new spins on such famed Sir Arthur Conan Doyle characters as Moriarty, Irene Adler and Sebastian Moran, apart from Sherlock and Watson themselves, so who's the latest to sign on for season 2? Joining Rhys Ifans' Mycroft Holmes, Sean Pertwee has officially signed on for the literary role of Inspector Lestrade!
The first season finale of CBS' modern Sherlock Holmes drama 'Elementary' threw a major wrench into Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's canon with the reveal of Moriarty's true identity, but it seems the acclaimed procedural will keep things a bit more traditional with the introduction of Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller)'s older brother Mycroft. 'The Amazing Spider-Man' star Rhys Ifans will take the iconic role, but for how long?
The Upfronts may have passed us by with all of the major networks unveiling their 2013-14 lineups, but CBS has jumped ahead in the 2013 race by releasing its full fall premiere schedule. The new CBS lineup will premiere after the 2013 Emmy awards, kicking off with an hour-long final season premiere for 'How I Met Your Mother,' and a host of other changes.
