CBS Midseason: O Canada! O Ashton! OMG IT'S A SERIAL KILLER!

I had promised to post CBS’s midseason announcement earlier. I was delayed, however, by having spent Two. Damn. Hours. on the phone / on hold with TiVo and Time Warner Cable regarding my still-not-functioning TiVo and HD-cable box. (I know you don’t want to know any more about my TiVo troubles. I know it’s boring. But not half as boring as Two. Damn. Hours. on a tech-support call, so there. I am a bitter, bitter man.)

So, the CBS schedule. CBS’s fall has been more not-so-much-a-miserable-failure than the other broadcast networks’, so there are fewer changes, chief among them the return of made-in-Canada cop show Flashpoint and the debuts of Game Show in My Head (a hidden-camera game show from Ashton Kutcher) and Harper’s Island, a slasher mystery in which a different character dies every week. Now if only we could introduce that twist to Knight Rider! The schedule after the jump:
