CBS announces 2012 midseason schedule

Unlike the other big networks, CBS typically doesn’t add many new programs to its lineup and shuffle them around for midseason. And this year is no different for the Eye. Only two major announcements here: The new half-hour comedy Rob (formally titled ¡Rob!) premieres Thursday January 12 at 8:30PM; it takes over for Rules of Engagement which CBS promises will return with new episodes in the spring. Rob stars Rob Schneider as a bachelor who marries into a tight-knit Mexican family. The second change is the comeback of Undercover Boss. The reality series will replace The Amazing Race in the Sunday night 8PM slot. CBS also says the reality competition series will return for another season later in 2012. Cop drama The 2-2 (recently renamed NYC 22) has yet to be scheduled. And that’s it.

After the break you’ll find the new Thursday and Sunday CBS lineups mapped out.

THURSDAYS (Effective Jan. 12)
8-8:30PM ‘The Big Bang Theory’
8:30-9PM ‘Rob’
