CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- As king of the networks, CBS can be as choosy as it wants each season, but it rarely makes a lot of changes. After all, why mess with what works? Next season, the network will debut two sitcoms and four dramas (the exact number it canceled this year), plus a reality show.
Jonny Lee Miller ("Eli Stone") is Sherlock and Lucy Liu ("Ally McBeal") his Watson in this modern-day re-imagining of the great detective. In New York after rehab, Sherlock is working as a police consultant, and Watson is his sober companion. Aidan Quinn ("Prime Suspect") co-stars as their police contact.
Two friends move from Indiana to L.A. to work at the website Groupon. Crazy adventures ensue, of course, as they try to adapt to big-city life. Nicholas Braun ("Sky High") and Christopher Mintz-Plasse ("Superbad") star.
The meteoric rise of the youngest police commissioner in NYC history is chronicled. Theo James ("Underworld: Awakening") leads a cast that includes Kevin Alejandro ("True Blood"), Chi McBride ("Boston Public"), Bonnie Somerville ("Cashmere Mafia") and Holt McCallany ("Lights Out").
Candidates compete each week to win a dream job at a well-known company. While they're proving their worth, a rival company can potentially snatch up contenders. Lisa Ling ("The View") hosts.
A young, blue-collar lawyer (Janet Montgomery, "Human Target") uses her street smarts to compete with her Ivy League colleagues at a prestigious New York firm. Kyle MacLachlan ("Desperate Housewives") plays the firm's founder.
David Krumholtz ("Numb3rs") and Michael Urie ("Ugly Betty") are best friends and business partners, but can their bromance hold up when one gets engaged? Sophia Bush ("One Tree Hill") plays the fiancée, and Brandon Routh ("Superman Returns") is Urie's boyfriend.
