CBS makes a “Mentalist” move and creates Chuck Lorre’s hour of power

Moonvesbaker  

The predictions were true! CBS’ hot-shot drama “The Mentalist” is bound for the post-“CSI” berth on Thursday. That should make things interesting on the night. (“Mentalist” star Simon Baker and CBS boss Leslie Moonves pictured above.)

Another big move that I surely didn’t see coming was the shift of my fave comedy “The Big Bang Theory” to Monday 9:30 p.m. behind “Two and a Half Men.” Just call it Chuck Lorre’s hour of power.

I didn’t think CBS would move “Big Bang” because it’s been such a stronger starter for Bigbangduo the night at 8 p.m. But rock on with your bad selves, Chuck, Bill Prady, Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, et al. Not only is the “Big Bang” mob the best cast and creatives in sitcomville, they’re also the nicest bunch of folks you’d ever want to meet (or conduct a panel sesh with).

Here’s the sked. New series descriptions and links to clips after the jump.
