CBS pulls Friday dramas due to World Series
CBS is outta here. With the World Series going into a seventh game tonight, CBS is pulling its original episodes of CSI: NY, Blue Bloods and — brace yourself — A Gifted Man. Repeats will air instead — the Gifted Man pilot, then encores of CSI: NY and CSI: Miami (no Blue Bloods).
This helps NBC (a little) with its plan to move forward with the season premiere episodes of Chuck and Grimm. Why is CBS changing and NBC staying the same? It’s easier to make this switch with shows that have been on for awhile rather than heavily promoted premieres.
