'Trace' moves but lineup solid for CBS
Indeed, the lineup is largely static year-on-year, with only four new series - three dramas and one comedy - making it into the four schedule. They include Smith, with Ray Liotta and Jonny Lee Miller; apocalyptic drama Jericho and James Woods's Shark. The new comedy, The Class, comes from Friends co-creator David Crane. Four other series have been earmarked for midseason launches.
The only major shift sees Without A Trace moving from Thursdays to Sundays at 10 after four years.
Mondays continue to house comedy, including How I Met Your Mother, The New Adventures of Old Christine and Two and a Half Men, followed by CSI: Miami at 10.
Only two reality series remain in the schedule: Survivor, which stays put at 8pm on Thursdays, and The Amazing Race, which switches to Sundays at 8pm.
Ghost Whisperer and Close To Home each earn second seasons, teaming with Numb3rs on Friday nights. Midseason hit The Unit will also return, Tuesdays at 9 ahead of Smith.
As expected, Threshold, Yes, Dear and Out of Practice are all axed. The King Of Queens will return at midseason.
