See Dad Run features David Hobbs (Scott Baio) who has spent the last decade playing the perfect father on one of TV's biggest sitcoms. But when the series ends and his wife resumes her own television career, he finds himself cast in his most challenging role to date: handling the day-to-day needs of three kids who've grown accustomed to not having him around. David soon learns that playing a dad on TV is child's play compared to the real thing. Instant Mom is a multi-camera, scripted half-hour series features Tia Mowry-Hardrict as Stephanie, a party girl who trades in Cosmos for carpools when she marries Charlie (Michael Boatman), who already has three kids. Sheryl Lee Ralph also stars as Stephanie's mother Maggie, and rounding out the cast are Charlie's three kids played by Sydney Park, Tylen Williams and Damarr Calhoun.


Intelligence

CBS announced the new premiere date for the action thriller Intelligence, which will have a special preview on Tuesday, Jan. 7 at 9:00 PM ET/PT following an original episode of NCIS. It will then premiere and move to its regular Monday at 10:00PM ET/PT time period starting on Jan. 13. Intelligence stars Josh Holloway as a high-tech intelligence operative enhanced with a super-computer microchip in his brain. With this implant, Gabriel is the first human ever to be connected directly into the global information grid. He can hack into any data center and access key intel in the fight to protect the United States from its enemies. In her highly anticipated return to network television, Marg Helgenberger stars as Lillian Strand, the Director of the elite government cyber-security agency who supports Gabriel and oversees the unit's missions. Strand assigns Riley Neal (Meghan Ory), a Secret Service agent, to protect Gabriel from outside threats, as well as from his appetite for reckless, unpredictable behavior and disregard for protocol.

The current Monday at 10pm series is Hostages but that series has struggled mightily in the ratings. Hostages will finish its 15 episode season with a special two-hour season finale on Monday, Jan. 6 from 9:00-11:00 PM ET/PT.
