BREAKING UPFRONTS NEWS: CBS Moves 'Case;' Cancels 'Trace,' 'Unit'

CBS stepped up to the podium today on Day 3 of Network Upfronts week and made some high profile cancellations. Both Without a Trace and The Unit are gone from the line-up while the network picked up former NBC series Medium and paired it with the well-matched Ghost Whisperer on Friday nights. As previously reported, PTR Fave Cold Case will return for a seventh season, but the show is moving to a later slot: 10 p.m. on Sundays (which means late nights in the fall thanks to the NFL overruns). TV's best comedy, How I Met Your Mother, will also return. Here's a look at CBS's complete Fall 2009 schedule courtesy of USA Today:

I think personally CC should have remained at 9pm , its going to be a big rating drop if the games runo overtime like they usually do.

Plus it's a 9pm show, there's always a big possibity of " Three Rivers" cancelling, so hopefully CBS would just move CC back to it's orignal time slow.

It's still good that Cold Case was renewed.

I'm so not happy about the timeslot change. Needless to say, I will be watching CC on Monday afternoons now. I can't stay up that late when there are football overruns and I have to be at work at 6:45 the next morning.

Okay ... I may not be watching CC next season as it moves to 10 p.m. That's just too late for me to stay up for a show I'm only mediocre about. Yes, true, can DVR ... but on mediocre shows, I find I get lazy and just skip the recording. Ouch. I'm sorry. I know. Oh well.
