CBS Mid-Season; E! Countdown to 50 Cutest Child Stars; And More!

Here we are two days before Thanksgiving and the news keeps coming! CBS announced today what they have store in for this mid-season. But first, they officially bring good news for fans of the drama Close to Home. The drama has been renewed for the full season, meaning all of CBS's new shows except Threshold has gotten that honor. That drama will be moving to Tuesdays at 10 p.m., and if it doesn't do well, expect a new show there by mid-season. CBS will air a new drama titled Love Monkey Tuesdays at 9 p.m. starting January 17. It will air in January and February, with the next installment of The Amazing Race coming up sometime in March. The shows stars Tom Cavanagh and Jason Priestley and it is about a 30-something up and coming single record executive who's navigating the tumultuous and highly amusing waters of work and dating in New York City. They also have scheduled Jenna Elfman's new sitcom for Monday nights at 9:30 p.m. starting Monday, January 23. Don't worry fans of the sitcom Out of Practice, CBS will bring that show back in the same time slot sometime in March. The Jenna Elfman Show (wt) stars, well, Jenna Elfman and Dabney Coleman. It is a sitcom about an attractive, single, semi-workaholic, with one simple goal: find true love while balancing a career as a successful lawyer.
And coming up in March is the drama The Unit and the sitcom The New Adventures of Old Christine. CBS has not decided on the night and time for those shows yet. They will determine where to put them if something falters from now until then. The Unit stars Dennis Haysbert, Scott Foley, & Robert Patrick in an action drama that follows a covert team of Special Forces operatives as they risk their lives on undercover missions around the world, while their families maintain the home front, protecting their husband's secrets. The New Adventures of Old Christine stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Seinfeld) in a comedy about a divorced working mom who is successfully juggling the daily stresses of motherhood and her business, while maintaining her fantastic relationship with her ex-husband…until his young, new girlfriend enters the picture, instantly complicating her life.
If I were Still Standing or Yes, Dear, I'd watch my back--since maybe one of these two shows will replace one or both of these aging sitcoms.

E! will countdown the top 50 cutest child stars ever! Will it be Gary Coleman? Macaulay Culkin? You'll have to find out on Sunday, November 27 from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. Two of the 50 stars on this list will co-host--Keshia Knight Pulliam (The Cosby Show) and Candace Cameron Bure (Full House).

You will be able to watch more Christopher Knight in the VH1 reality series, My Fair Brady. I can't describe it anymore, so click here to see how VH1 said it.
