CBS is closing one comedy door and opening another on Feb. 19, announcing on Friday an hourlong series finale for “Two and a Half Men” and the series premiere of “The Odd Couple.”

As part of the comedy tweaks on the night, the net will also be shifting “Mom” to a new 9:30 p.m. time period.

Two and a Half Men,” which stars Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer and is executive produced by Chuck Lorre, ranked as television’s most watched comedy for five consecutive seasons on Mondays from 2005-06 through 2009-10. Upon its completion, 262 episodes will have aired.

The Odd Couple” will get a good launchpad, sandwiched at 8:30 p.m. between an original episode of TV’s top comedy “The Big Bang Theory” and the finale of “Two and a Half Men.” Starting Feb. 26, the newcomer will be followed by a repeat “Big Bang Theory” and “Mom” in its new timeslot.”

“The McCarthys,” which currently airs at 9:30 behind “Two and a Half Men,” will complete its 15-episode first season on Feb. 12.

“Odd Couple,” an updated version of the Neil Simon play and classic 1970s TV series, stars Matthew Perry as endearing slob Oscar Madison and Thomas Lennon as uptight neat freak Felix Unger. It also stars Wendell Pierce, Lindsay Sloane and Yvette Nicole Brown. Matthew Perry, Bob Daily, Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum are executive producers for CBS Television Studios.
