CBS Pulls "Password," Adds "Mentalist" Post-NFL Showcase
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- CBS has yanked "Million Dollar Password" from its schedule, network sources confirmed this afternoon.

Meanwhile, "The Mentalist" is set to follow the NFL's AFC Championship on January 18. Said first-run installment, "Paint It Red," was originally set for January 27.

"Password" posted a fourth place 1.9 rating among adults 18-49 on Sunday, even though it won its 8:00/7:00c time period among total viewers (10.41 million).

Here is the Eye's revised schedule for the rest of the month:

Sunday, January 11
4:00/3:00c - "NFL Playoff: San Diego at Pittsburgh"
8:00/7:00c - "60 Minutes" (Special Time)
9:00/8:00c - "Cold Case"
10:00/9:00c - "The Unit"

Sunday, January 18
6:00/5:00c - "NFL Playoff: AFC Championship"
10:00/9:00c - "The Mentalist" (Special Night & Time)*

Sunday, January 25
7:00/6:00c - "60 Minutes"
8:00/7:00c - "Cold Case" (Special Time)
9:00/8:00c - "Loving Leah" (Original Movie)

* "The Mentalist" will air immediately after the game in all time zones

Various repeats are expected to air on February 1 against NBC's Super Bowl coverage while the Grammy Awards will air on February 8 as previously announced. "The Amazing Race" then assumes the 8:00/7:00c slot on February 15.

CBS still has two episodes of "Password" yet to air - "Jamie Kennedy/Norm MacDonald" and "Jeff Garlin/Chelsea Handler."
