'Two and a Half Men' moving to Thursday nights this Fall

Two and a Half Men is set to Thursday nights for the 2012/13 season, CBS announced today. Unveiling their fall schedule at their upfront presentation in New York, CBS revealed their plan to move the long-running show to the Thursday 8:30/7:30c slot, immediately following The Big Bang Theory.

In its nine-year history, Two and a Half Men has never moved to a different day, having started and remained on Monday nights. Two and a Half Men aired at 9:30/8:30c for its first two years, following the popular CBS sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond. From the 2005/06 season, Two and a Half Men has aired at 9/8c and became the crown jewel in CBS's Monday night line-up.

The Big Bang Theory, which will now lead in to Two and a Half Men, was co-created by Chuck Lorre, co-creator of Two and a Half Men. The Big Bang Theory was originally a Monday-night sitcom airing in a number of different slots on the night between 2007 and 2010. The Big Bang Theory moved to Thursday nights for the 2010/11 season and has now become one of the highest-rated sitcoms on TV. CBS has so far struggled to find a suitable partner for the Big Bang in the one-hour Thursday-night comedy block. Three different shows filled the 8:30 slot this season: How to be a Gentleman, canceled after three weeks; Rules of Engagement, a moderate performer but often used as mid-season filler by CBS; and Rob, also now cancelled.

Two and a Half Men's replacement in the Monday 9/8c slot will be 2 Broke Girls, which just completed its first season. How I Met Your Mother is to stay at 8/7c, while new sitcom Partners airs at 8:30. Chuck Lorre's Mike & Molly will also remain in its 9:30 slot and Hawaii Five-0 stays put at 10/9c.

John Not necesarilly The Big Bang Theory started initially Monday Nights and later moved to Tuesday and continued to deliver strong ratings every week, so it's not a rule that a move to other nights kill a tv show
