10 p.m. - "Numb3rs"

9 p.m. - "Crimetime Saturday"
10 p.m. - "48 Hours Mystery"

7 p.m. - "60 Minutes"
8 p.m. - "Viva Laughlin" (new)
9 p.m. - "Cold Case"
10 p.m. - "Shark"

I really like this schedule, much better than the one I proposed actually. Moving "Without a Trace" back to Thursday at 10 is incredibly wise. "Shark" did well in the spot, but it was always a little soft. Also glad to see "Shark" get the 10 PM spot on Sunday, which I wasn't sure would happen, but since CBS was willing to move "Trace" back to its old time slot, it makes perfect sense. I'm not sure how good a fit "Viva Laughlin" is into "Cold Case", but we'll see. "Swingtown", "Amazing Race" and "Old Christine" sit on the bench until midseason. I got Friday right, but Wednesday I got thrown a curve by CBS adding "Kid Nation", a reality show in that hour. Now "Two and a Half Men" is safe on Monday with "Rules of Engagement". It's a solid lineup. We'll see how it flies against the other nets, but I think this will keep CBS at the top of the heap for another year.
