CBS - Les Moonves expects to add two comedies and two dramas

With the addition of the NFL on Thursday night our schedule is pretty darn tight,” the CBS chief told the Deutsche Bank Annual Media, Internet & Telecom Conference this morning. Les Moonves says he’s considering 18 pilots this year, including spinoffs of NCIS and CSI, vs about 22 last year. And “you only need 4 winners” so “you’d better be damn good or you’re not going to get on.” He acknowledged that his network’s Monday night shows have been “slightly disappointing…NBC did well with The Voice.” As a result, people should “not be surprised to see Big Bang Theory on Monday nights” in the first six weeks of the season — overlapping the eight week period when CBS will have NFL games on Thursday nights — as well as “a returning successful show or a new show” at 10:00.
