by Jean Bentley, posted May 18th 2011 9:20AM
Person of InterestIt's CBS's turn to shake things up with its fall schedule, which the network just announced this morning.

'CSI' is finally getting the boot from its longtime Thursday night time slot in favor of the J.J. Abrams-produced 'Person of Interest,' while 'The Good Wife' is getting transferred from Tuesdays at 10PM to the highly competitive Sundays at 9PM slot.

The network's two new comedies will both get their shots after established shows, with '2 Broke Girls' airing after 'How I Met Your Mother' on Mondays and 'How to Be a Gentleman' landing post-'Big Bang Theory' on Thursdays. Interestingly, 'Rules of Engagement' is being pushed to Saturday nights.

CBS is saving the Robert De Niro-produced cop drama 'The 2-2' for mid-season (hopefully with a better name).

The full fall schedule is after the jump.

by Jason Hughes, posted May 17th 2011 10:45AM
Jean Smart, 'Hawaii Five-0'Betrayal abounded on the first season finale of the rebooted 'Hawaii Five-0' (Mon., 10PM ET on CBS). McGarrett finally got a piece of the puzzle together when he realized the governor's duplicity and involvement with Wo Fat. This tied her to McGarrett's father's demise.

He even got an admission of guilt in the death of Laura Hills earlier this episode, for all the good it's going to do him. The Governor said she's loyal to the people who are loyal to her. It's a great philosophy, but one that isn't shared by Wo Fat.

He arrives in the nick of time with a taser to take down McGarrett, who had the governor at gunpoint. Now, what to do about him.

Interviewees include Jim Carrey, Will Arnett, Ray Romano, James Spader, Ricky Gervais and more. Kathy Bates is on hand to guide the proceedings. The lead-up episode had very few laughs -- here's hoping this talented crew can send 'The Office' to hiatus with a bang.

EXCLUSIVE: Rick Springfield Books a Guest Spot on 'Hawaii Five-0'

by Maggie Furlong, posted Mar 9th 2011 6:30PM
Rick Springfield'Hawaii Five-0' (Mondays, 10PM ET on CBS) has had its fair share of big name guest stars -- Dane Cook, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo, James Marsters and 'Iron Chef' Masaharu Morimoto have all stopped by.

Next up? The show continues the celebrity guest star streak with none other than '80s rocker-turned-soap star Rick Springfield.

Yep, the man who famously pined after 'Jesse's Girl,' had 'General Hospital' fans swooning as Dr. Noah Drake (and his doppleganger, rockstar Eli Love) and, most recently, played an exaggerated version of himself on 'Californication' is now getting the cop drama treatment in paradise.

AOL TV has the exclusive details on Springfield's 'Five-0' role as fashion photographer Renny, who we'll meet in an episode set to air this spring.

Daniel Dae Kim, 'Hawaii Five-0'If you're in Hawaii for a TV assignment, your priorities look something like this: 1) Enjoy some sun, 2) enjoy some sun while doing your TV assignment, and 3) meet up with Daniel Dae Kim.

The 'Hawaii Five-0' star has become a fixture on the island since shooting 'Lost' there, and he's lucky enough to still be working in paradise. But do he and his fellow cast members get to take advantage of their beautiful surroundings? "When we're shooting somewhere near a surfbreak, half of the crew and some of the cast will disappear and go surf," he admitted.

Best. Job. Ever.

Kim also talked about how he's getting to do things now that he was never able to do as Jin (he speaks more English, for starters) and how 'Five-0' is attempting to get audiences even more hooked.

Then he dished about big upcoming guest stars -- including Dane Cook and Sean "Diddy" Combs -- and which of his old 'Lost' pals he'd love to work with again.

Is 'Hawaii Five-0' Moving to L.A.? Star Daniel Dae Kim Sounds Off

Daniel Dae Kim, 'Hawaii Five-0'There have been some Internet rumblings that 'Hawaii Five-0' (Mondays, 10PM ET on CBS) might be moving to Los Angeles, and they just won't go away. I know, it's blasphemy, right? Right?

Since I'm currently in Hawaii down the street from where they shoot, I thought I'd get our pal, star Daniel Dae Kim, to set the record straight.

After all, if anyone's an expert on shooting here in paradise, it's him. With 'Lost' and now 'Five-0' both based in Oahu, he and his family have called the island home for a while now.

So, are the rumors true? Could they really fake Hawaii on a show with Hawaii in the title?
