CBS Starts With Survivor

Survivor will lead off CBS’s fall premieres on Thursday, Sept. 15, but the following Monday is when the network will begin to learn whether its Raymond-less Monday night comedy lineup can still outlast and outwitty the competition.

The network announced its 2005-06 premiere dates Thursday, beginning with the debut of Survivor: Guatemala, followed the next night by a special two-hour premiere of new sci-fi thriller, Threshold.

After airing the Emmys Sunday, Sept. 18, the bulk of the premieres roll out the following week, when Raymond heir apparent, Two and a Half Men anchors CBS’s new-look Monday night. New comedies on the night are How I Met Your Mother and Out of Practice. The night leads off with vet King of Queens.

CBS will also give new drama, Criminal Minds, a shot in the plush post-CSI slot on Thursday, Sept. 22, before moving it to its regular Wednesday 9 p.m. slot the following week, when Without A Trace debuts.
