CBS announces new shows, nukes 'Jericho,' 'Class,' 'Close to Home'
UPI News Service, 05/16/2007
The post-nuclear survival drama "Jericho" has been nuked by CBS, the network said when announcing its fall line-up in New York.
CBS also dismissed the comedy "The Class" and legal yarn "Close to Home," but did pick up "The Amazing Race" for another globe-trotting competition, Variety reported Wednesday.
CBS is mixing in several dramas, including "Cane" with "L.A. Law" and "NYPD Blue" alum Jimmy Smits, and a vampire-themed drama, "Moonlight."
"The Unit,""Numbers" and "Ghost Whisperer" will be back next season, as will "NCIS" and all three CSI installments.
"We had an interesting year," CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler said. "This was the year we had the stability, we had the strength. We were going to make some noise, stir things up. And we did."
