‘Mom’ and ‘The Millers’ to Shift Time Slots for Fall

CBS will be shifting the time slot for its comedy series “Mom,” swapping it up with its other sitcom “The Millers.” Read on for further details.

With “Scorpion’s” successful launch on Monday, premiering right after “The Big Bang Theory’s” hour-long premiere, proving the shows compatibility as both shows feature geniuses, just in different settings. CBS’ top brass wanted the same momentum going for their female-led sitcom, “Mom,” which will premiere its next season this fall.


According to Deadline, “Mom” has been slated to air its second season on Monday, airing behind “Big Bang” before the CBS flagship comedy returns for a Thursday timeslot. However, CBS is committed on having a “Big Bang” lead in for “Mom,” shifting its second season premiere for a Thursday pilot on Oct. 30, 2014, following “Big Bang’s” regular air time.

The change leaves “The Millers,” another CBS sitcom which was previously slated to air its second season for a Thursday 8:30 p.m. slot, to shift its air time for Monday, Oct. 20, 2014, filling the gap made by “Mom.” The shift will only be for the fourth quarter, with both “Mom” and “The Millers” returning to their original intended time slots.

For now, “Big Bang” will air back-to-back episodes for the next Mondays, Sept. 29, Oct. 6 and 13, followed by “Scorpion.”

By Oct. 20,  2014, Monday, “Big Bang” will air a single episode, 8:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m., leading into “The Millers” Season 2 premiere, 8:30p.m.-9:00 pm. By the following week, the Monday, Oct. 27, 2014, 8:00p.m.-8:30 p.m. timeslot will be filled in by “2 Broke Girls” Season 4 premiere, with “Big Bang” moving into a Thursday timeslot on Oct. 30, 2014, at 8:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m., followed by “Mom’s” Season 2 premiere at 8:30 p.m.-9:00 p.m. By Jan. 5, 2014, Monday, “Mom” will shift back into its Monday timeslot airing at 8:30 p.m.-9:00 p.m. after “2 Broke Girls,” leading into “Scorpion,” while “The Millers” return on Thursday, Jan. 8, 2014, to its 8:30 p.m.-9:00 p.m. time slot.

That’s it for “Mom” and “The Miller” timeslots shifting. For more details on celebrities, movies and your favorite TV shows, make it a habit to stay tuned here on Movie News Guide (MNG).
