New Shows Feature Diverse and Daring Concepts Including “VIVA LAUGHLIN,” Where Drama is Accented by Iconic Music; “CANE,” Starring Jimmy Smits as the Head of a Powerful South Florida Cuban Family; “MOONLIGHT,” a Romantic Thriller with a New Twist on the Vampire Legend;

“THE BIG BANG THEORY,” a Comedy About Genius Geeks; and “KID NATION,” a New Reality Series Where 40 Kids Try to Build a New Society in an Abandoned Ghost Town

Seventeen Current Series Return to a Lineup

That Features More Time Period-Winning Programs Than Any Other Network

“THE AMAZING RACE” and “THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE” Picked Up for Mid-Season Along with the New Drama “SWINGTOWN”

Game Show “POWER OF 10,” Hosted by Drew Carey, Ordered for Summer

CBS announced today its 2007-2008 Fall Primetime lineup, featuring five new series – one comedy, three dramas and one reality program.

These freshman series will join 17 returning programs on the current CBS lineup, which will win the 2006-2007 season in viewers and adults 25-54, continuing the Network’s multi-year winning streak.

The five new series feature bold and creative concepts, including Viva Laughlin, where drama is accented by iconic music; Cane, starring Jimmy Smits as the head of a powerful South Florida Cuban-American family; Moonlight, a romantic thriller with a new twist on the vampire legend; The Big Bang Theory, a comedy about genius geeks from “Two and A Half Men” co-creator Chuck Lorre; and KID NATION, a reality series where 40 kids will try to build a new society in an abandoned ghost town.

“We approached our development this year with a specific goal in mind – to be daring and different,” said Nina Tassler, President, CBS Entertainment. “The Fall and mid-season series we have selected offer creativity and variety with great potential to excite and surprise television audiences everywhere.”

These new shows will be woven into a deep and successful lineup that returns more series and has more time period-winning programs than any other network. CBS will return television’s Number One drama and scripted program, CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION; the Number One comedy, TWO AND A HALF MEN; the Number One new comedy, RULES OF ENGAGEMENT; the Number One news magazine, 60 MINUTES; and the premiere reality series, SURVIVOR.

Also returning are: HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, CSI: MIAMI, NCIS, THE UNIT, CRIMINAL MINDS, CSI: NY, WITHOUT A TRACE, GHOST WHISPERER, NUMB3RS, COLD CASE and SHARK, as well as 48 HOURS: MYSTERY and CRIMETIME SATURDAY.

The new 2007-2008 schedule is:

On Monday, CBS adds a new series to television’s top rated comedy lineup. HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, with a young and loyal audience, returns at 8:00 PM, paired with the new genius comedy THE BIG BANG THEORY at 8:30 PM to form a young adult comedy block. From 9:00-10:00 PM, CBS returns television’s top comedy, TWO AND A HALF MEN, followed by the Number One new comedy, RULES OF ENGAGEMENT. At 10:00 PM, CSI: MIAMI, the night’s Number One scripted series, returns for its sixth season.

On Tuesday, the Top 20 hit NCIS and THE UNIT return from 8:00-10:00 PM. This successful two-hour drama block will serve as a launching pad for the stylish new drama CANE at 10:00 PM.

On Wednesday, CBS returns its successful duo of CRIMINAL MINDS and CSI: NY from 9:00-11:00 PM. Earlier in the evening at 8:00 PM, the network will try something very different with a new reality series, KID NATION, starring 40 remarkable kids attempting to prove they can form a functioning society in an abandoned New Mexico ghost town, where their adult predecessors failed.

On Thursday, CBS returns one of television’s top dramas, WITHOUT A TRACE, to 10:00 PM, joining forces once again with the time period-winning SURVIVOR at 8:00 PM and CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, television’s Number One drama, at 9:00 PM.

CBS will again use an established series as a launch pad for a new one on Friday. GHOST WHISPERER opens at 8:00 PM as a compatible lead-in to the new romantic thriller MOONLIGHT at 9:00 PM, followed by the return of the time period-winning drama NUMB3RS at 10:00 PM.

Saturdays will feature CBS’s CRIMETIME programming from 8:00-10:00 PM, followed by 48 HOURS: MYSTERY, the night’s top-rated program.

On Sunday, CBS will once again open with 60 MINUTES, the perennial Number One newsmagazine on television. At 8:00 PM, CBS will make one of its biggest moves with one of its boldest new shows, VIVA LAUGHLIN, a drama with music, based on the British hit “Viva Blackpool.” From 9:00-11:00 PM, the network will program a two-hour block of successful crime and justice with the growing COLD CASE and the sophomore series SHARK.

In addition to the new series for Fall, the network announced the pick up of three programs for midseason, including the four-time Emmy Award-winning THE AMAZING RACE, the comedy THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE, starring Emmy Award winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and the provocative new drama SWINGTOWN.

The network also announced it has ordered the reality series POWER OF 10, hosted by comedian Drew Carey (“The Drew Carey Show”) for this summer.

The new comedy is:

THE BIG BANG THEORY is a comedy from the Emmy Award nominated Co-Creator and Executive Producer of “Two and a Half Men” Chuck Lorre, about brainy best friends Leonard (Johnny Galecki, “Roseanne”) and Sheldon (Jim Parsons “Judging Amy”), who can tell you anything you want to know about quantum physics, but when it comes to dealing with everyday life here on earth they’re lost in the cosmos. Neither fully understands that scientific principles don’t always apply in matters of the heart – until they meet their sexy new neighbor Penny (Kaley Cuoco, “8 Simple Rules…”), a friendly screenwriter/waitress from the midwest who also happens to be newly single. She quickly makes an impression on the other members of Leonard and Sheldon’s geek squad – Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg, “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip”), who portrays himself as the Casanova of Cal Tech, and fellow whiz kid Rajesh Koothrappali (Kunal Nayyar, “NCIS”), who is rendered speechless around anyone unprepared to converse about the Theory of Relativity or other scientific jargon. The chemistry between this gaggle of geniuses and a delightful damsel is about to undergo a stimulating series of inter-personal experiments. Multiple Emmy Award winner James Burrows (“Will & Grace”) directed the pilot. Lorre and Bill Prady (“Gilmore Girls,” “Dharma & Greg”) are executive producers for Warner Bros. Television.

The new dramas are:

Executive produced by Tony and Emmy Award winner Hugh Jackman (“The Boy from Oz,” “X-Men”), VIVA LAUGHLIN is a mystery drama with music about eternal optimist and freewheeling businessman Ripley Holden, whose sole ambition is to run a casino in Laughlin, Nev. Occasionally using upbeat contemporary songs to accentuate the drama and humor and advance the story, the series is based on the hit BBC show “Viva Blackpool.” Ripley (Lloyd Owen, “The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles”) is the ultimate gambler with an infectious personality who is on the brink of making a killing… just as soon as he opens his casino that’s nowhere near completion. When his financing suddenly falls through, the fearless and tenacious Ripley approaches his enemy – dashing, sarcastic, wealthy casino owner Nicky Fontana (Hugh Jackman) for help. Though the odds are stacked against him, Ripley doesn’t miss a beat, even when he becomes embroiled in a murder investigation after the body of his ex-business partner is found at his club. At home, Ripley uses his dry wit to adjust to the demands of his family: his gorgeous wife, Natalie (Madchen Amick, “ER”), wants more attention; his teenage daughter, Cheyenne (Ellen Woglom, “The O.C.”), wants his approval; and his son, Jack (Carter Jenkins, “Surface”), wants to help him at work. All of this adversity would defeat a lesser man, but for the outgoing and passionate Ripley there’s no such thing as bad news, only deals to be struck and wagers to be won in the intoxicating neon glow of Laughlin, where the cards are on the table, romance is in the air and lively music is on the stage. Eric Winter (“Wildfire”) and D.B. Woodside (“24″) also star. Directed by Gabriele Muccino (“The Pursuit of Happyness”). Golden Globe Award nominee Hugh Jackman, John Palermo (“X-Men: The Last Stand”), Bob Lowry (“Huff”), Paul Telegdy and Peter Bowker (“Viva Blackpool”) are executive producers for BBC Worldwide Productions, Seed Productions, CBS Paramount Network Television in association with Sony Pictures Television.

CANE stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Jimmy Smits (“The West Wing”) in an epic drama about the external rivalries and internal power struggles of a large Cuban-American family running an immensely successful rum and sugar business in South Florida. When the family patriarch, Pancho (Hector Elizondo, “Chicago Hope”), is offered a lucrative but questionable deal by his bitter adversary, the Samuels, to purchase thousands of acres of sugar fields, he’s faced with a tough choice: Should he cash out of the sugar business and focus solely on rum, which would please his impulsive natural son, Frank (Nestor Carbonell, “Lost”), or protect the family legacy that he built from the ground up by not selling, and side with his adopted son, Alex (Smits), who mistrusts the Samuels and still sees value in sugar. Alex and Frank’s approach to business is as different as their approach to life. While Frank might lose focus chasing women, Alex is deeply in love with his beautiful wife, Isabel (Paola Turbay, “Bailando por un Sueño”), who is also Pancho’s daughter. Married when she was just 17 years old, Isabel balances Alex by choosing not to involve herself in the business, focusing instead on their three children, who are determined to forge their own paths outside the family. For the Duques, will family allegiance come first or will their secrets and acrimonious conflicts over love, lust and control of the family fortune be their downfall? Eddie Matos (“General Hospital”), Rita Moreno (“West Side Story”), Michael Trevino (“The Riches”), Lina Esco (“CSI: NY”), Sam Carman (“Bones”), Alona Tal (“Veronica Mars”) and Polly Walker (“Rome”) also star. Cynthia Cidre (“The Mambo Kings”), Jonathan Prince (“American Dreams”), Jimmy Iovine (“8 Mile”) and Polly Anthony (“Lifehouse: Live in Portland!”) are the executive producers for ABC Studios in association with CBS Paramount Network Television.

MOONLIGHT, from prolific movie producer Joel Silver (“The Matrix,” Trilogy), is about Mick St. John (Alex O’Loughlin, upcoming “White Out”), a captivating “undead” private investigator who uses his acute vampire senses to help the living… instead of feeding on them. In an agonizing twist of fate, Mick was “bitten” 60 years ago by his new bride, the seductive and beguiling Coraline (Amber Valletta, “Hitch”). Immortal and eternally as young, handsome and charismatic as he was then, Mick is sickened by Coraline and other vampires who view humans only as a source of nourishment. With only a handful of undead confidantes for company, including deceitful ally Josef (Rade Serbedzija, “24”), Mick fills his infinite days protecting the living, and trying not to think about how his life would have been if he hadn’t followed his heart. However, after six decades of resisting, he wonders if it’s time to pursue the love of a mortal. He has his eyes on Beth Turner, a beautiful, ambitious reporter who has been covering the ongoing plague of unusual murders. But would Beth even consider giving up a normal life to be with him, and can Mick risk the pain of seeing himself as a monster in her eyes? As Mick lives between two realities, fighting his adversaries among the undead and falling in love with Beth, he knows he needs to figure out a reason to keep “living.” MOONLIGHT is directed by executive producer Rod Holcomb (“ER”). Joel Silver, Ron Koslow (“Birds of Prey”), Trevor Munson and Gerard Bocaccio are also executive producers for Warner Bros. Television.

The new reality series is:

KID NATION is a reality-based series in which 40 kids will have 40 days to build a new world – in a ghost town that died in the 19th Century. These kids, ages 8-15, will spend more than a month without their parents or modern comforts in Bonanza City, N.M., attempting to do what their forefathers could not – build a town that works. They will cook their own meals, clean their own outhouses, haul their own water and even run their own businesses – including the old town saloon (root beer only). They’ll also create a real government – four kid leaders who will guide the group through their adventure, pass laws and set bedtimes. Through it all, they’ll cope with regular childhood emotions and situations: homesickness, peer pressure and the urge to break every rule they’ve ever known. At the end of each episode, all 40 kids will gather at an old fashioned Town Hall meeting where they will debate the issues facing Bonanza City. They’ll show wisdom beyond their years and the unflinching candor that only kids can exhibit. There are no eliminations on KID NATION – you only go home if you want to. And in every Town Hall meeting, kids may raise their hands and leave. Will they stick it out? In the end, will these kids prove to adults everywhere (and their own parents!) that they have the vision to build a better world than the pioneers who came before them? And just as importantly, will they come together as a cohesive unit, or will they abandon all responsibility and succumb to the childhood temptations that lead to round-the-clock chaos? KID NATION is produced by Emmy Award winner Tom Forman (“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”) for Tom Forman Prods. and Good TV, Inc.

The new summer reality series is:

POWER OF 10, hosted by award-winning comedian Drew Carey (“The Drew Carey Show”), is a high-stakes game that challenges contestants to guess the behaviors, opinions and lifestyle choices of the American public for the chance to win $10 million. POWER OF 10 polls thousands of people across the U.S. asking them, well, just about everything – from “What percentage of married Americans said they were virgins the day they got married?” to “What percentage of American’s believe they are smarter than the president?” Each week, contestants must decide if they have their finger on the pulse of the American majority and can accurately predict the results of these nationwide surveys. With the first question worth $1,000 and only five questions to answer, each one increasing 10 times in value, contestants participate in a potentially lucrative game where they just might walk away with $10 million. The higher they are on the money ladder, the closer they must be to the actual statistic. The studio audience and a friend can help them, but the final answer is theirs. Michael Davies (“Who Wants to be a Millionaire”) is executive producer for Embassy Row in association with Sony Pictures Television.

The new midseason series is:

SWINGTOWN, from the director of “Big Love” and “Rome,” peeks into the shag-carpeted suburban homes of the 1970s to find couples reveling in the sexual and social revolution that introduced open marriages, women’s liberation and challenged many conventional wisdoms. During this heady era of provocative change, Susan (Molly Parker, “Deadwood”) and Bruce Miller (Jack Davenport, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest”) move their family to an affluent Chicago suburb in search of a different sense of community, and they look forward to barbecues and get-togethers with their new neighbors, as well as a change of pace for their teenage daughter and pre-teen son. Enter Tom (Grant Show, “Melrose Place”) and Trina (Lana Parrilla, “24”) Decker, a striking, outgoing couple on the hunt who redefine the term “neighborhood watch.” After a mind-blowing evening with them, Susan and Bruce realize that couples in this town share much more than recipes, local gossip and a view of Lake Michigan, and are worlds apart from their former conservative neighbors, Janet (Miriam Shor, “Big Day”) and Roger (Josh Hopkins, “Brothers & Sisters”) Thompson. Susan’s loyal friend Janet is appalled by what she witnesses in this new neighborhood, while Roger, though dutiful to his wife, may be more intrigued than she knows. In a changing social climate – defined by its music, fashion and style – everyone in SWINGTOWN is confronted with personal choices, experimentation and shifting attitudes. Shanna Collins (“Wildfire”), Aaron Howles and Brittany Robertson (“Freddie”) also star. Mike Kelley (“The O.C.”) and director Alan Poul (“Six Feet Under”) are executive producers for CBS Paramount Network Television.

  • I cannot believe they killed Close to Home. IMHO that was a stupid call on CBS’s part. The show was very good and I get a little sick of them having power base shows like this and just killing them and keeping sorry shows like How I met your brother. and I know CBS is doing big brother again but why is not listed

  • I’m really hoping “Swingtown” won’t be a watered down, vanilla society looking down their noses at those sexually liberated among us. I’m not sure this subjectmanner can be done justice on network television, without pissing off James Dobson etc. This sounds like a series best made by HBO or Showtime, especially to do to the subjectmatter justice. I hope it turns out well. I’ve been impressed with CSI:Las Vegas (Miami: Bleh) and Criminal Minds writting and style with difficult subject matter. I’m currently a member of a very large, elegant swingers club which was started by a husband & wife team during the 70s (you can still feel it in the decor) and I really hope that their mission of communication and love between partners above all pleasures of the flesh is not lost on the writters of this show. I hope they’ve either done their research, or have a firsthand knowledge of this vast community… 4 million strong, and growing.

    I am very glad that “Shark” will be back for the 2007-2008 season.
    I am not happy that it’s on Sundays, because CBS also broadcasts sports events.
    This means trhat Shark will be late and yet broadcast in full when the basketbal season starts.
    If another show during the week happens to get cancelled, perhaps the CBS schedule will be revised to move SHark into a weeknight slot.
    Thanks agin CBS for allowing Shark, a truly great show, a second season.

    How I Met Your Mother on CBS Mondays at 8PM is one of my favorite TV comedies of all time.It is amazing that week after week the stories get better,the laughter and comedy last well after the show is finished at 8:30PM.It is a love story that is in reverse.It kind of brings back my teenage and early adult years.The writing continues to be strong episode after episode.I am very happy that CBS has real hit comedy every Monday night.The problem is more people should be watching this series.I believe CBS understands that for a long time viewers are used to mature comedies like Everybody Loves Raymond.Now CBS wants to slowly get younger audiences and yet not lose the core of their programing.The Big Bang Theory is next and I hope it does well.Keep on promoting How I Met Your Mother which already has a young loyal audience and I predict by early next year more than 10 million people will be watching the show.

    I liked Jerico, if I could be home to watch it I also DVR’d it, that was a GREAT show. Say it is’t so to the cancellation of Jerico.

  • For some reason, I forgot to list Big Brother. The eighth season ends September 17th. An announcement hasn’t been made on whether or not there will be a ninth season, but it’s a solid summertime performer for the network, so odds are it’s safe.

    I’ve added the show to the To Be Determined list with a (S) next to it, signifying that it’ll likely be renewed.

    Please everyone who loves Jericho, email CBS at the link below. It’s the only way they will know how many people are really watching until they figure out a way to get rid of the antiquated Nielsen system. If you don’t have a box you don’t get counted. Also the DVD release of Season One goes on sale October 2nd. CBS will be watching those sales as well. I love this show and want it back for Season 3! Everyone worked so hard to get it back including you, let’s keep it where it belongs…..in your living room!

    cancel all stupid reality shows like Kid Nation (what a dumb idea) and bring back rock Star like it`s the only show that displays real talent in singers/songwriters. Unlike American Idol which will just produce singers that don`t write there own music. (i know it`s not a CBS show but it`s producing more crap) Inxs became sucessful after season 1, way more i think then any American Idol winner I mean yeah SuperNova Flopped but i don`t think it was because of Lucas.

    I’m really disappointed to hear Rock Star was cancelled……..it was an excellent show. Beats the heck out of all the others out there.
    Seems everytime I just start enjoying a show someone cancels it and puts yet Another idiotic sitcom or reality program on instead. I don’t think TV people have any taste…….or sense at all anymore. TV programming really blows the last few years!!!!!
