NEW YORK (AP) — CBS is prying loose “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” from its long-time Thursday slot next fall to make room for a new drama from “Lost” creator J.J. Abrams.

That thriller, “Person of Interest,” will star former “Lost” cast member Michael Emerson. “CSI” moves to Wednesday in the schedule unveiled Wednesday by the network. Photos: Check out the new shows!

CBS announced two other new dramas. “Unforgettable” focuses on a former police detective with a flawless memory. On “A Gifted Man,” a surgeon’s deceased ex-wife returns from the hereafter.

New comedies include “2 Broke Girls,” about a pair of diner waitresses, and “How to be a Gentleman,” about a refined newspaper columnist and his unrefined personal trainer.

“Two and a Half Men,” with Ashton Kutcher replacing Charlie Sheen, stays put on Monday.
