Don't get me wrong, I understand what CBS is doing because it's all about what works and procedures work. It's just my personal taste. Sure I watch some CBS shows but I don't *need* to watch them. If I'm forced to chose between CBS drams or other-network-dramas, I can drop my CBS dramas.

Nope. I think I was too young to watch them. LOL

No 2.5 Men has been hurting CBS' Monday lineup big time.

Yeah, CBS will do whatever they have to to keep "Hawaii Five-O" on-air long enough to justify the sweetheart syndication deal. (It used to be 88 episodes were enough for healthy runs; don't know if that's still the case.)

It always amuses me the amount of hate CBS gets from tv sites (not singling out this site, I mean on the web in general), a lot of people complain how reality is taking over for scripted shows yet CBS, the number 1 network in total viewers, number 2 in 18-49 has the most scripted shows of anyone, gets the most amount of criticism, most of which I find unwarranted. Procedurals it's what's been working for CBS, so I don't blame them. It's not like they don't have any non-procedural dramas, they do. They just haven't been as successful as their other dramas lately. I think CBS does plan to diverse it's lineup. It knows it's CSI shows don't have much left in them. Rumors have swirling that CBS really wants some medical dramas. Earlier this year, CBS hinted at reviving the Western and when it moved Big Bang to Thursday, network made hints they'd like to expand it 2 hours and have 4 hours of sitcoms. I think once it gets in Monday lineup back in order, they still have long term plans to do that. Which as a sitcom watcher, I welcome, cause I remember when networks used to have 4-6 hours of sitcoms, & like to see that return.

    • It was discussed a few times during the Possession, Rolf has talked about it, and Megan mentioned she killed one of the clones for Marlena's body when she faked her death.   I know Leo has talked about it as well so I would assume everyone knows.  I don't believe I have ever heard Marlena or John speak about it though. With Kristen, didn't they have Marlena or John say that they found out she was alive off-screen years before?   To me that's even worse than not mentioning it.  A major revelation happened and we never saw or heard about it until Kristen is back and did Kristen even delve into to her years as a sex slave?
    • All My Children going up substantially and claiming the top spot. AW still strong. ATWT begins to drop off a bit. Y&R solid and strong. OLTL coming on strong as well probably getting residual carry over from AMC. GH making its move out of the bottom half. DAYS solid in the middle.   Thank you for posting!!

    • If this became common knowledge, I'm guessing it was sometime in the last year and half with the Possession 2.0 storyline and I just forgot. Otherwise, nobody knew about the 4 Marlena Clones gallivanting all over the world.  I guess it's just one of those things that happen without an onscreen mention, like Kristen's 2012 return with nary a mention that everyone thought she was dead (really Penelope Kent) or Tommy Horton dying at some point in time.    Re: Body & Soul.... DAYS is such a parody of a soap opera now. I can't take any of this garbage seriously. Even the alleged high stakes stuff like the rooftop shootout with Paulina, Chanel, etc. is done in such a frenetic, over-the-top, amateurish manner, complete with rinky-dink, clownish and patronizing background music.
