CBS doubles up on The Big Bang Theory

CBS will double up on The Big Bang Theory during the show's limited run on Monday nights. Following original episodes at 8/7c, a rerun of a different The Big Bang Theory episode will be airing at 8:30/7:30c on September 29, October 6 and October 13. The show returns to its Thursday night home on October 30.

The change to the schedule means Mom, the Anna Faris and Allison Janney sitcom from Chuck Lorre, will now begin its second season on Thursday, October 30 at 8:30/7:30c, immediately following The Big Bang Theory. The show had been set to start its sophomore season next Monday. The Thursday night line-up when it returns on October 30 will also have Two and a Half Men at 9/8c and new sitcom The McCarthys (starring Laurie Metcalf) at 9:30/8:30c, with the drama Elementary at 10/9c.

The second season of The Millers will now be taking the Monday 8:30/7:30c slot from October 20. After The Big Bang Theory returns to Thursday nights, 2 Broke Girls will have the 8/7c slot starting October 27. In January, Mom returns to Mondays at 8:30/7:30c and The Millers heads back to Thursdays at 8:30/7:30c.
