The big news is that CBS is moving Monday night juggernaut The Big Bang Theory to Thursdays at 8 pm, where it will go head to head with NBC’s Community as the Eye looks to launch a new comedy toehold on Thursdays. Survivor meanwhile moves to Wednesdays and Fridays will now serve as the home for Medium, CSI: NY, and new drama Blue Bloods.
TBBT has not been a direct competitor of Chuck for ratings. The CBS show that airs during Chuck, How I Met Your Mother, is currently scheduled to air in the same time slot next season.
I’m going to speculate (and this is pure speculation), that some shuffling and counter programming is going to occur, and CBS’s move is only the first in a series of schedule changes for next season involving all the majors.
Okay, networks! Prove me wrong!
