CBS is giving its Rob Schneider laffer “Rob” the plum post-“Big Bang Theory” slot on Thursdays starting in January.
The Eye has also set Jan. 15 as the third-season preem of “Undercover Boss,” which will move into the Sunday 8 p.m. slot now occupied by “The Amazing Race.”
“Rob” stars Schneider as a man who marries into a tight-knit Mexican-American family. It will bow in the Thursday 8:30 p.m. berth on Jan. 12, displacing “Rules of Engagement,” which was hauled up earlier this seaon to fill the void left by the quick demise of frosh comedy “How to Be a Gentleman.”
The Eye said “Rules” and “Amazing Race” will be back on the sked later in the season.
