CBS announces its 2014-2015 primetime schedule

Posted: Updated:

CBS has announced its new 2014-2015 primetime schedule that will feature eight new series -- with five to launch in the fall.

"America's Most-Watched Network" is debuting nearly all of its new and returning shows during a single, condensed "official premiere week" (Survivor is the lone exception) Monday, September 24 through Sunday, September 30.

The network is also picking up NFL Thursday Night Football and ending the long-running sitcom "Two and a Half Men," which runs for just one more season.

CBS announced that nine dramas will return this fall, including "NCIS: Los Angeles," "Person of Interest," "Criminal Minds," "Elementary," "The Mentalist," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Hawaii Five-O," "The Good Wife" and "Blue Bloods."

The five returning comedies are "Mike and Molly," "The Big Bang Theory," "The Millers," "2 Broke Girls" and "Two and a Half Men," which will begin its 12th and final season. Reality series "Undercover Boss," "The Amazing Race" and "Survivor" will also be back on the small screen.

The new fall series are:

"Madam Secretary," a new drama starring Tea Leoni as the newly appointed U.S. Secretary of State.

"NCIS: New Orleans," a spin-off of starring Golden Globe Award winner Scott Bakula.

"Scorpion," a high-octane, thrill-ride drama starring Elyes Gabel, Robert Patrick and Katharine McPhee. The show inspired by the true story of an eccentric genius and his team of brilliant misfits working to protect the U.S. from high-tech threats.

"Stalker," a new psychological thriller, starring Maggie Q and Golden Globe Award winner Dylan McDermott as detectives who investigate stalking incidents.

"The McCarthys," a new ensemble comedy, starring three-time Emmy Award winner Laurie Metcalf, Jack McGee, Tyler Ritter and Joey McIntyre as members of a sports-crazed Boston family.

Other new series include "Battle Creek," a new drama from "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan, which stars Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters, along with a modern take on the classic comedy "The Odd Couple," starring Matthew Perry as Oscar Madison and Thomas Lennon as uptight neat freak Felix Unger.

"CSI" is also branching out with "CSI: Cyber," a spin-off from the creative team behind the signature series, with Emmy Award winner Patricia Arquette as an investigator who delves into the world of digital crime.

Some shows are shifting nights and times.
