    CBS fall line up (with photos)

    CBS appears to have a slew of new programs after a reality slump and coming of the heels of a bad news year.

    The Fall Season presentations for all the television networks new shows take place this week with the first announced today. With the help of The Futon Critic, here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on CBS.

    Despite some more intense competition last season, the Eye still remained the top choice of viewers across America and in fact this past season won the biggest number of viewers by the widest margin of any network in 16 years despite none of its new shows taking off last year short of small hit "Numb3rs". With its strong Bruckheimer franchises ("CSI", "Without a Trace", "Cold Case") and "Survivor" all running as good as ever, the network didn't have to change much around this year, rather just fill in one or two holes such as the departure of long-runners "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "JAG".

    Its also trimmed the fat a little with the likes of "60 Minutes Wednesday", "Joan of Arcadia" and "Judging Amy" all canned. The channel will introduce six new prime time series in the Fall and two mid-season shows:


    DRAMAS

    CLOSE TO HOME


    A legal drama that tears away the facade of suburbia to reveal that sometimes quiet and tranquil streets can hide the darkest of crimes. Annabeth Chase is a young, aggressive prosecutor with a perfect conviction record who tries the cases that take place in her own backyard. Returning to work after having her first child, Annabeth is ready to take on the most difficult cases, fueled by her passion to protect her community and her family. Kimberly Elise, Jennifer Finnigan, Christian Kane, John Carroll Lynch and David Starzyk star.


    CRIMINAL MINDS

    A suspense thriller about an elite squad of FBI profilers who analyze the country's most twisted criminal minds, anticipating their next move before they strike again. Each member of the team brings their own area of expertise to the table as they pinpoint predators' motivations and identify their emotional triggers in order to stop them. Thomas Gibson, Shemar Mooore, Mandy Patinkin, Chelah Horsdal & Matthew Gubler star.


    GHOST WHISPERER

    From the creators of "Profiler" and "The Dead Will Tell". Melinda Gordon is a young newlywed with the unique ability to communicate with the earthbound spirits of people who have died and who seek her help. Melinda uses her gift to relay significant messages and important information to the living, but sometimes the messages she receives are intense and confusing. As a result, she is often met with questions and skepticism by the survivors. But when Melinda is able to help both the lost souls who contact her and those who are still alive, she knows that her unique talent is an asset and not a liability. Jennifer Love Hewitt, Aisha Tyler and David Conrad star.


    THRESHOLD

    From producers David Heyman ("Harry Potter") and David Goyer ("Blade"). A suspenseful drama about a team of experts who are assembled when the U.S. Navy makes a chilling discovery: an extra terrestrial craft has landed in the mid-Atlantic Ocean. Dr. Molly Anne Caffrey is a government contingency analyst whose job is to devise response plans for worst-case scenarios. When her plan called THRESHOLD is activated upon the news of the UFO, she and her hand-picked team of eclectic specialists get to work deciphering the intention of the craft and preparing for the possibility of a crisis situation -- an alien invasion. Robert Patrick Benedict, Charles S. Dutton, Carla Gugino & Brent Spiner star.


    THE UNIT (mid-season)
    "The Shield" collaborators David Mamet and Shawn Ryan produce this action drama that follows a covert team of special forces operatives as they risk their lives on undercover missions around the globe, while their families maintain the homefront, protecting their husbands' secrets. Dennis Haysbert, Robert Patrick, Scott Foley, Regina King, Amy Acker, Michael Irby, Max Martini, Regina Taylor and Sammi Hanratty star.


    COMEDIES

    HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER


    Ted's best friend, Marshall, drops the bombshell that he's going to propose to his long-time girlfriend, Lily, a kindergarten teacher. At that moment, Ted realizes that he had better get a move on if he hopes to find true love, too. Helping him in his quest is Barney, a friend with endless, sometimes outrageous, opinions, a penchant for suits and a fool-proof way to meet women. When Ted meets Robin, he's sure it's love at first sight, but destiny may have something else in store. With voice-over by Bob Saget, the show is told through flashbacks from the future. Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan, Neil Patrick Harris and Cobie Smulders star.


    OUT OF PRACTICE


    A comedy about a family of physicians who share the same profession but have little else in common. Ben Chase is an earnest young couples' counselor whose family doesn't consider him to be a "real" doctor because he doesn't have "M.D." after his name. But despite their lofty credentials, Ben might be the best prescription for this family's future. Chris Gorham, Stockard Channing, Paula Marshall & Henry Winkler star.


    EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT MEN (mid-season)
    A US remake of BBC comedy "According to Bex." A comedy about Bex Atwell, an attractive secretary with simple goals: find true love, have an exciting career and a normal relationship with her father. But in a world where men behave like, well...men, she realizes that she may be overly ambitious. Now, Bex is determined to figure out what men are all about while wondering why women even bother to try to understand them in the first place.

    Another show about criminal profilers???

    Sheesh....enough already. That genre began and ended with the great "Millennium".
    "The old man's gonna knock on the sky. Listen to the sound."

    AP'er since 2004. Yup.....I'm one of THEM.

    Although I am still upset that CBS cancelled "Joan of Arcadia", I can't wait to check out "How I met your Mother".

    Both NPH and Jason Segal in the same show together?! Mama Mia! I've loved Jason Segal since his "Freaks and Geeks" days, and have been slightly pshycotic for the NPH since the Doogie days. I have a friend who works for CBS and has seen some of this show, and is simply raving about it. Good times!

    I can't believe they ditched Joan. That was such a good show, I loved the way they handled the religious side of it with such objectiveness and without the Touched By An Angel cheesiness. Why do the good shows never get the appreciation they deserve? Why. *goes into three hour rant*

    I am right there with you! I yelled at my CBS friend last night when I saw him...not that he had anything to do with the show's departure, but it made me feel better at least!

    I wonder how Threshold will be. Nice to have a semi-sci-fi show back on the air. Plus, Brent Spiner will be on it! Yay!
    Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"
