CBS is shaking up its schedule for midseason, bringing in The Mentalist and benching The Good Wife—but only for a little while!
The Mentalist begins its final season on Sunday, Nov. 30 at 9:30 p.m. after a new Madam Secretary. The show will take over The Good Wife's 9 p.m. time slot for several weeks before moving to Wednesdays on Jan. 7 at 8 p.m. The two-hour series finale airs Feb. 18 at 8 p.m. The Good Wife returns with new episodes on Sunday, Jan. 4 at 9 p.m. For its final seasom, The Mentalist stars Simon Baker, Robin Tunney, Tim Kang, Rockmond Dunbar, Joe Adler and Josie Loren.
Undercover Boss will air on Sundays for three weeks on Sunday, Dec. 14, Dec. 21 and 28 before moving to its regular time slot on Fridays at 8 p.m. on Jan. 2. Madam Secretary also returns on Sunday, Jan. 4.
"One of the goals this season was to keep expanding our lineup of year-round, original programming and have fewer repeat cycles," Kelly Kahl, senior executive vice president of CBS Primetime, said in a statement. "We're fortunate to have two popular, proven ratings winners in The Mentalist and Undercover Boss to seamlessly join our schedule."
Survivor and The Amazing Race kick of new seasons on Wednesday, Feb. 25, at 8 and 9:30, respectively. The Amazing Race moves to its regular time slot on Friday, Feb. 27, at 8 p.m.
