CBS cancels seven shows, including 'Ghost,' 'Case'
CBS is going to have some open slots for next season after all.

In a year where CBS was expected to only lose a few shows, the network has canceled four dramas and three comedies. 

 Crime procedurals "Cold Case," "Ghost Whisperer" and "Numbers" will not be renewed for next season. Jerry Bruckheimer's drama "Miami Medical" is likewise canceled, as is fellow freshman "Accidentally on Purpose," which mainly aired in the network's Monday night comedy block. Veteran Wednesday night comedies "New Adventures of Old Christine" and "Gary Unmarried" are also cancelled. 

The network picked up "Medium" and "Rules of Engagement" for next season, as expected.

CBS fall schedule ...
After canceling seven shows yesterday, Wednesday's unveiling of the CBS fall schedule suddenly became a highly intriguing announcement: How will the network fill its lineup after picking up only six pilots? Will all the new shows air in the fall? Will any existing programs be expanded? Will a dark horse reality project (or two) sneak in?

CBS is conservative about its schedule. The network makes very calculated, deliberate moves. But this fall may have see interesting shifts.

Schedule coming around 8:30 a.m. ET ...

  On Sunday, a winning crime drama moves to 10:00 PM to anchor one of TV's biggest nights.  The perennial #1 news magazine, 60 MINUTES, kicks off its 43rd season at 7:00 PM. The seven-time Emmy Award-winning series THE AMAZING RACE returns at 8:00 PM followed by the first full season of UNDERCOVER BOSS, TV's #1 new show at 9:00 PM, keeping intact a powerful reality block.  CSI: MIAMI provides the night's strongest 10:00 PM anchors in years. 




  On Wednesday, CBS makes two strategic time period changes to bookend the night. SURVIVOR provides a potent lead-off hitter at 8:00 PM.  The sixth-year hit CRIMINAL MINDS remains at 9:00 PM, providing a strong lead-in to the new drama THE DEFENDERS, starring Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell, at 10:00 PM.

I thought Medium had already jumped the shark quite a few times. Ghost Whisperer was always a lost case :/
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

I'm really surprised by the Survivor move. CBS must think that the original TAR time slot of a decade ago will improve Survivor's demo numbers, otherwise it makes no sense.

Actually it makes perfect sense.  CBS had the umber one show on THursday 8pm slot (bya  significant margin) they are replacing it with a show that scored evenhigher on Monday, and are hoping they can branch coemdy on Thursday.

For years they have tried comedies on Wednesday with no real success.

Last year the 8-9pm timeslot was getting a 2.1-1.7 in the demo.  THey expect survivor to do a lot better then that.  They don't expect it to match what it got on Thursday but if it can hold 70% or more of its audience then it will still be a huge improvement on what they were getting on that night.

The idea is to always have a strong anchor for a night, the only night on M-Thursday that didn't was Wednesday.

The other option was for them to stick with comedy on Wednesday (with BBT and **** My Dad Says), but comedy hasn't been that strong and with only BBT being a tested show, it leaves more room for failure.  With the Comedies going to Thursday (an already strong night) it gives less chance for those shows to fail.  And with Survivor being a full hour it really helps gives the whole lineup of Wednesday a strong, strong anchor.

The moves CBS made (as we can't judge the new shows yet) is some of the best choices I have ever seen CBS make.

Another thing to remember while TAR 9 had trouble on Wednesday there were several other factors, multiple time slots, coming off of the very poorly received family edition, and the over all poor performance CBS had on Wednesday.  In fact TAR was still doing better then all but one other CBS show on Wednesday (the Unit I believe).  We also had 60 minutes II as our lead in a show that unlike 60 minutes never managed to get a large audience (let alone a young one).

I believe the original season of Survivor did in fact air on Wednesday nights in the summer of 2000.

I believe that it doesn't matter which day Survivor comes on, the viewers will always follow.  It is a fantastic show and this season was the icing on the cake.  Survivor seems to be getting better and better every season.  It is a true icon.
