|2009 Fall schedule - it's here! Mon May 25, 2009 4:36 am
All the networks have unwrapped their fall schedules, and there are plenty of surprises. Check out which shows will be going up against each other!
Mondays won't look too different from last season, with the only significant changes being ABC expanding Dancing With the Stars to two hours, Fox's Lie to Me following House, and CBS swapping a pair of comedies. CBS made the decision to create a strong block with Two and a Half Men and Big Bang Theory. In experiments putting the two shows back-to-back last year, numbers were way up for Big Bang, and the network hopes to make this hit as big as Two and a Half Men. ABC is stoked that Castle's only real competition in the 10:00 hour is CSI: Miami--it should translate into a ratings jump for Castle and our beloved Nathan Fillion. This is just a guess, but neither of the two new scripted shows (CBS' Jenna Elfman comedy Accidentally on Purpose and NBC's drama Trauma) looks to make much of an impact on this night. Mondays should belong to ABC thanks to the strength of Dancing With the Stars.
