CBS' Official Fall 2009 Schedule Listed


CBS saves 'Medium', green lits 'NCIS' spin-off and cancels 'Without a Trace' as well as 'The Unit' and 'Eleventh Hour'.

In a formal presentation held on Wednesday, May 20, CBS announced its official Fall 2009 schedule. Among the highlighted ones are the pick-up of "Medium" which has been snubbed by NBC and the go-ahead on "NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service" spin-off which is titled "NCIS: Los Angeles".

CBS Studios which is behind "Medium" previously criticized NBC for canceling the show starring Patricia Arquette. "NBC's cancellation of 'Medium' is inexplicable to us," the statement said. "The ratings don't lie: 'Medium' outperforms many of NBC's renewed shows ... We believe the show has a significant future and await developments." It will be put on Fridays, sandwiched by "Ghost Whisperer" and "Numb3rs".

Meanwhile, "NCIS: Los Angeles" which was previously thought to be named "NCIS: Legend", focuses on a new batch of naval agents who have been introduced in an episode of "NCIS". LL Cool J is starring as Special Agent Sam Hanna, a tough but charming former U.S. Navy Seal and is "an expert on the Middle East" while Chris O'Donnell is Special Agent G. Callen who is "an ordinary guy born to do undercover". It will air every Tuesdays right after the original.

CBS is also introducing several new series this Fall, including Jenna Elfman-starring comedy "Accidentally on Purpose", and the Julianna Margulies-starring drama "The Good Wife". Those receiving the ax in the mean time, are "The Unit", "Without a Trace" and "Eleventh Hour".

    I am a big fan of NCIS and I loved the "Legend" episodes. So I am thrilled that CBS is doing a spinoff based on The Legend episodes I will be waiting anxiously for the fall premiere. The stars Chris and LL Cool J are fantastic in the rolls of Callen and Hannah.
