CBS Fall 2012 TV Schedule: Night-by-night prime-time grid

simon-baker-mentalist-320.jpgSix new scripted shows are joining the CBS lineup for the 2012-2013 season. Though we won't see two of them until midseason, the promising bunch that will debut in the fall include the Sherlock Holmes-inspired drama "Elementary," the 1960s cop drama starring Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis called "Vegas," the lawyer drama "Made in Jersey" and the comedy "Partners."

The biggest scheduling move will see "Two and a Half Men" moving to Thursday nights to pair up for a comedy dream team with "The Big Bang Theory," while "2 Broke Girls" moves to 9 p.m. on Mondays so "Partners" can launch after "How I Met Your Mother."

"Vegas" will premiere Tuesdays at 10 p.m., while "Elementary" will bow on Thursdays in the 10 p.m. time slot. "Made in Jersey" will be paired with "CSI: NY" and "Blue Bloods" on Friday nights, while "The Mentalist" moves to 10 p.m. on Sundays.

Here's a night-by-night grid of the CBS fall schedule:
