Just Four New Fall Shows from CBS

Touting another successful primetime season, CBS announced just four new series for its fall season, only one of them a comedy, at a time when other networks have been loading up their schedules with sitcoms.

It’s keeping 19 of its shows, but moving some around – “2 Broke Girls” to Mondays at 9 p.m., “Two and a Half Men” to Thursdays. “CSI: Miami” goes but “CSI: New York” moves to Fridays; “The Mentalist” moves to Sundays.

The new comedy “Partners” involves pals and business partners David Krumhotz and Michael Urie. It’s from David Kohan and Max Mutchnick and also stars Sophia Bush and Brandon Routh.

Of the new dramas, “Elementary,” pictured, is a modern day Sherlock Holmes series starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu as “Dr. Joan Watson.” Also in the cast: Aidan Quinn.

“Vegas” stars Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis, about a sheriff trying to bring order to the Nevada gambling town in the 1960s.

In the midseason, they bring one new drama, one comedy and a new reality show.

The comedy “Friend Me” is about another pair of friends who move from the Midwest to L.A. With Nicholas Braun and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, it could be called “2 Broke Dudes.”
