Freshman hit 2 Broke Girls takes over the anchor spot on Mondays while Two and a Half Men moves to Thursdays behind The Big Bang Theory in the new CBS schedule unveiled today in New York. CSI: NY now opens Fridays and The Mentalist moves to Sundays behind The Good Wife.

There was some thought that CBS would go with a two-hour block of comedies on Thursdays but instead the block of Big Bang Theory and Men leads into Person of Interest and the new Sherlock Holmes-like drama Elementary. “We had the guns to go to four comedies,” admits CBS head of scheduling Kelly Kahl. “This is simply the way the schedule felt strongest and looked best to us.”

In addition, CBS will bow a new drama called Golden Boy in midseason that tracks one cop’s meteoric rise from officer to detective to police commissioner. There is also a new comedy called Friend Me, about twentysomething best friends, Evan and Rob, who move from their hometown of Bloomington, Ind., to Los Angeles to begin their exciting new lives working at GroupOn.

Undercover Boss will be back, too, as well as a new Mark Burnett show called The Job. It’s a competition that leads to a dream job.

No ruling yet, however, on whether Rules of Engagement will return.
