‘Road’ finds a home; ‘Harts’ departs slot

CBS will schedule the Bruce Paltrow-John Tinker drama “The Road Home” at 9 p.m. Saturdays beginning March 5, placing current time-period occupant “Harts of the West” on hiatus.

The Eye web also will introduce other shows that week, seeking to capitalize on the promotional platform provided by the Winter Olympics.

The web confirmed previously that Tom Arnold’s new sitcom vehicle “Tom” will begin airing March 2 (Daily Variety, Jan. 13).

“Road Home,” which stars Karen Allen and Ed Flanders, is a family drama set in North Carolina and produced by the Paltrow Group in association with CBS Entertainment Prods. The series gets a crack at a plum time period behind “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman,” where “Harts” has been dropping sharply.

As previously reported, “Tom,” from the Arnolds’ Wapello County Prods. and Warner Bros. TV, will replace “Hearts Afire” at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday. “Hearts” will return in April as part of the Monday lineup.

CBS will heavily promote new series during the Olympics, scheduled to run from Feb. 12-27. Other midseason shows still awaiting spring berths include “Traps,””Christy” and “Muddling Through.”
