CBS's 2013-14 schedule is here, and it's largely the same, save moving 'Hawaii Five-0' to Friday and 'Person of Interest' to Tuesday, while 'Mike & Molly' returns in midseason.
CBS on Wednesday drew back the curtain to reveal its 2013-14 primetime schedule during its traditional breakfast with reporters ahead of its official upfront presentation at Carnegie Hall.
Stability seemed to be the rationale behind CBS's primetime schedule, which returned pretty much intact with a few notable exceptions: Hawaii Five-0 will move to Fridays at 9 p.m., in order to take over the timeslot left vacant by the cancellation of CSI: New York, Person of Interest will now close out the night on Tuesdays, and Mike & Molly is being held until midseason.

J.J. Abrams opens up about ‘Star Trek Into Darkness,’ partnering with the Mission Continues, which helps military veterans transition back to civilian life, ‘Star Wars,’ and more. Plus, read the Mission Continues’s founder Eric Greitens on the organization’s message.
J.J. Abrams might be the hardest-working man in show business.
In addition to his myriad television projects past and present—Felicity, Alias, Lost, and Fringe, to name just a few—his production company Bad Robot, and his direction of the Hollywood blockbusters Super 8, Star Trek, and now its sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness, he also has partnered with the nonprofit organization the Mission Continues, founded by former Navy SEAL Eric Greitens to help military veterans transition back to civilian life.
A recent episode of Gordon Ramsay’s Fox reality show, ‘Kitchen Nightmares,’ has spilled out into the comments section of Yelp and beyond.
A restaurant featured on Gordon Ramsay’s Fox reality show Kitchen Nightmares is living a real-life nightmare—on its Facebook and Yelp pages. Viewers, appalled at what they saw on the show—the owners of Amy’s Baking Company were shown pocketing the staff’s tips; it was revealed by Ramsay that the raviolis, like the restaurant’s famed baked goods, weren’t made on site—took to social media to complain.
Customers weighed in on Yelp: one reader called the owner “a psychopath,” another said, “This place makes Subway or MacD seem like fine dining,” and another described Amy’s as an “Awesome restaurant if you're a masochist! I've been insulted, humiliated and put down so many times in an evening that I got my fill for a year.“
The Daily Beast's television critic Jace Lacob talks to KPCC about the broadcast network upfronts and what's in store for next season.
Jace Lacob examines ABC's primetime schedule for 2013-14, which includes Joss Whedon's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D,' a 'Once Upon a Time' spin-off, and Kyle Killen's 'Mind Games.'
ABC took the wraps off of its 2013-14 schedule on Tuesday morning, following speculation about where the network would slot its highly anticipated television series spin-off of feature film franchise The Avengers, entitled Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Yes, there are a lot of periods there for one title.) Elsewhere, ABC announced that Rebel Wilson's sitcom Super Fun Night would get the plum post-Modern Family timeslot on Wednesdays and its upcoming spin-off of Sunday evening's successful fantasy drama Once Upon a Time, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, would be heading to Thursdays. And comedy The Neighbors, which received an eleventh hour reprieve, is now headed to Fridays.
The biggest news, however, was that Dancing With the Stars would be reduced to just one night a week.
Finally, a face! After eight seasons, the first shot of How I Met Your Mother’s titular character was shown Monday night. Who is she? Introducing newcomer Cristin Milioti.
“Kids, I’m going to tell you an incredible story—the story of how I met your mother,” Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) told his eye-rolling children in the pilot of How I Met Your Mother. Now, after eight seasons of circuitous clues; a parade of spunky character actresses and cute Girl Next Doors; endless will-they-or-won’t-they teases with former paramour Robin Scherbatsky (Cobie Smulders); and glimpses of her umbrella, her ankle, and her raincoat, we finally saw the mother’s face on Monday night's season finale.

It was the face audiences had been waiting since 2005 to see. Was it an actress who played a girlfriend of Ted’s who we already met, like Sarah Chalke, Rachel Bilson, or Ashley Williams? Nope. Was it another big star, like Sarah Michelle Gellar, Keri Russell, or Elisabeth Olsen? Nuh-uh. It was…wait who was that?
