CBS Monday news: Captain, Christine get new premiere date
Now that the fall shows are drying up, those midseason replacements are becoming more and more essential. Zap2It tells us CBS has shifted the premieres of The Captain and The New Adventures of Old Christine from January 28 to February 4 (so as to not compete with the State of the Union Address). And furthermore, The Captain has been redubbed Welcome to the Captain.
In this new series, Fran Kranz plays a young man who moves into a legendary Hollywood apartment complex. His new neighbors are played by the likes of Raquel Welch, Jeffrey Tambor, Chris Klein and more. Which I guess means it's a show about a bunch of wacky neighbors, as opposed to the requisite one.
Captain is taking The Big Bang Theory's 8:30 PM ET time slot with Christine slipping into her old 9:30 PM ET slot after Two and a Half Men. So did they lengthen the name of Captain so CBS' Monday lineup would have the longest names in the history of television? How I Met Your Mother, Welcome to the Captain, Two and a Half Men and The New Adventures of Old Christine. Are all the good one or two word show names taken?
