CBS is tweaking its spring schedule a bit, moving one drama to Sundays, delaying another’s premiere and setting up a new drama for Thursdays.
Elementary, the Sherlock Holmes drama starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu, will move to Sundays at 10pm starting March 20. The show, currently in its fourth season, now airs Thursdays at 10pm.
In its place, the new dramedy Rush Hour will premiere Thursday, March 31 at 10pm. The TV adaptation of the popular Jackie Chan/Chris Tucker movie franchise is wisely being held until later in the spring to avoid ABC’s giant, How to Get Away with Murder, which ends its second season on March 17.
Finally, CBS is delaying the premiere of the Criminal Minds spin-off Beyond Borders, pushing it back two weeks to Wednesday, March 16 at 10pm. It was supposed to premiere on March 2,l one week after new drama Code Black ends its first season, but now CBS will air two special episodes of CSI: Cyber in that time slot on March 2 and March 9.
Despite all of these schedule changes and announcements, CBS is still not revealing when the fifth season of Person of Interest will debut. That hold-out remains one of the big mysteries of the network’s schedule, along with what will happen to Wednesday night comedies 2 Broke Girls and Mike and Molly when Survivor returns.
