HBO surprised the TV world yesterday with the announcement of a standalone streaming option for the reclusive network, but it isn't the only TV giant looking to secure a streaming future. CBS has announced (and launched) its own pay-service to give non-cable users access to their library of content, calling the new innovation "CBS Access."
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?
After suffering a humiliating defeat with freshman comedy 'We Are Men,' CBS has taken a big leap forward with its other fall 2013 efforts. The network has given full-season orders to the Robin Williams- and Sarah Michelle Gellar-starring 'The Crazy Ones,' as well as Anna Faris-Chuck Lorre comedy 'Mom,' and the oft-maligned Will Arnett vehicle 'The Millers,' each of which rank as the most-watched new comedies of the season.
With all the insanity of Comic-Con 2013 behind us, and the rapid-fire storm of the TCA press tour underway, CBS has turned its attention toward previewing its original fall comedies with glossy brand-new posters. The four one-sheets feature Chuck Lorre's 'Mom,' Will Arnett vehicle 'The Millers,' as well as the Robin Williams/Sarah Michelle Gellar comedy 'The Crazy Ones,' and male ensemble 'We Are Men.'
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.
Earlier today CBS went through with a rather late pickup of the upcoming 'Bad Teacher' adaptation, but the confirmed offerings for the network's 2013-2014 slate have a few reveals of their own. The network has released extended trailers for Chuck Lorre's 'Mom,' Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robin Williams' 'The Crazy Ones' and more, so get your best look yet at CBS's fall lineup inside!
As you may have noticed, this is the week of Upfront presentations and today it's CBS who offered a peek at their fall 2013-2014 lineup. We're certainly inclined to check out Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar's single-camera 'The Crazy Ones,' as well as Chuck Lorre's latest show 'Mom,' Will Arnett's 'The Millers' and new dramas 'Hostages' and 'Intelligence,' so preview the newest offerings inside!
Moving right along the major network pantheon, CBS is the latest to give out its lineup for fall 2013-2014 in advance of today's big Upfront presentation. No major shakeups, other than an expanded comedy block on Thursday nights and moves for both 'Person of Interest' and 'Hawaii Five-0,' but Chuck Lorre's 'Mike & Molly' will sit the fall out, while still producing a full season.
