Jane Lynch fans will have to wait a little longer to see her new show on CBS. The network is delaying the debut of Angel From Hell until February to give it a better chance of success.
Though its already heavily marketed Angel — which follows the relationship between a larger-than-life guardian angel who forms an unlikely friendship with a woman named Allison — CBS will pull 2 Broke Girls off the bench and have it bow on Thursdays in November, instead.
A February premiere for Angel will give CBS the chance to promote the show during the network’s airing of the Super Bowl on Feb. 7, insiders said. CBS still has two comedies waiting in the wings: Mike & Molly and The Odd Couple.
Here is the new schedule:
CBS on Thursday, Nov. 5
8:00-8:31 PM THE BIG BANG THEORY (Regular time period)
8:31-9:01 PM LIFE IN PIECES (Regular time period)
9:01-9:30 PM MOM (3rd season premiere)
