CBS looks ahead to summer slate

'Harper's' set for post-season schedule

CBS is looking ahead to summer, scheduling mystery skein “Harper’s Island” to spill over into the post-season.

“Harper’s” will air Thursdays at 10 p.m. starting April 9, after “Eleventh Hour” (which just scored a five-episode extension) ends its run.

Designed to unfold over 13 episodes – with a big reveal at the end – “Harper’s” won’t conclude until the middle of summer, on July 2.

Eye also announced that last summer’s crime drama “Flashpoint,” which performed decently for the net, has been upgraded to an in-season time slot. Show will air Fridays at 9 p.m. (in the slot vacated by the now-canceled “The Ex-List”) starting Jan. 9.

Also, CBS will preem the new reality skein “Game Show in My Head,” from Ashton Kutcher’s Katalyst shingle, Fox21 and Hat Trick, with back-to-back episodes on Saturdays at 8 p.m. starting Jan. 3.

Then there’s the return of CBS unscripted staples “Survivor,” which is back for an 18th cycle on Thursday, Feb. 12, and “The Amazing Race,” which bows its 14th edition on Sunday, Feb. 15.

“Harper’s Island” centers on a group of friends who gather on a secluded island for a wedding – but things soon turn to murder. CBS Paramount Network TV is behind the show, which comes from exec producers Jon Turteltaub and Jeffrey Bell. (Ari Schlossberg created the show.)

As for “Game Show,” skein – hosted by Joe Rogan – follows ordinary people as they compete for a $50,000 prize. Based on the Brit show of the same name, “Game Show” comes from exec producers Jimmy Mulville, Leon Wilde, Jason Goldberg, Karey Burke, Michael Binkow and Kutcher.
