With the strike all but over, Variety reports that CBS appears to be moving forward with an order for a few more episodes of Moonlight to begin airing as early as April.
Dramas moving forward include all three editions of the "CSI" franchise, "NCIS," "Without a Trace," "Cold Case," "Numbers," "Criminal Minds," "Ghost Whisperer" and "Moonlight."
Laffers given a greenlight are "Two and a Half Men," "How I Met Your Mother" and "The Big Bang Theory."
Net is hoping to crank out eight segs of its comedies and six or seven segs of each of its dramas. Newcomer "Moonlight" will likely produce fewer segs.
Eye insiders are hoping to begin rolling out new episodes of the comedies by mid-March, while the hope is to have dramas begin popping up the first week in April.
While we may only get 3 or 4 new episodes this season, it's certainly better than nothing! No scheduling decisions have been locked in, however, so this could still change as CBS reviews what is feasible for the rest of this season. We'll keep you informed of any further announcements.
