Gee promoted to senior VP of scheduling at CBS

Move follows Kubitz shifting to ABC to replace Bader

Noriko Gee, who continues to move up the ladder at CBS, has been upped to senior VP of programming planning and scheduling.

Her promotion immediately follows the defection of scheduling exec Andrew Kubitz to ABC.

Gee’s responsibilities include scheduling all CBS primetime series, specials and movies. She will also oversee CBS’ theatrical acquisitions and continue to contribute to the planning of the CW schedule.

“Noriko is one of the best scheduling minds in our business,” said senior exec VP Kelly Kahl, to whom she reports. “From the placement of new series to key strategic moves of hit shows to grow nights, CBS has benefitted greatly from her sharp programming acumen and instinctive analysis.”

Gee began at CBS in 2001 as an intern in the research department and shifted to the scheduling division in 2003.

She had been a scheduling VP since April 2010, where she played a role in the Eye’s moves of “The Big Bang Theory” to Thursday at 8 o’clock and “CSI” to 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Kubitz left for ABC to replace longtime Alphabet vet Jeff Bader, who shifted to NBC.
