CBS opens new Thursday slot with a 'Bang'

The new season of Big Bang gets underway on September 23rd. The show kicks off a new one-hour comedy block on Thursdays that also includes the show $#*! My Dad Says, starring William Shatner and based on a Twitter feed of the same name. CBS's Thursday night schedule continues with drama from CSI at 9 and The Mentalist at 10.

Cannot wait until the season starts. This is one of my favorite shows, one of the two shows that I actually watch and one of the reasons I watch T.V. Counting down the days...

I hope the show does as well on Thursdays as it did on Mondays. I kinda hated to see it change. What I would really like to see is the show go from 1/2 hour to an hour. Probably won't ever happen though. It just seems like the show gets started when the end comes. Thanks to all of the wonderful (<--NOT) commercials. The actual show run time is what, maybe 15-20 minutes if you're lucky. Anyway, I look forward to a new season and maybe someday longer episodes.
