New Schneider sitcom bumps his fellow “SNL” alum David Spade out of his timeslot
CBS announced its midseason schedule Monday, revealing the premiere dates for the new Rob Schneider comedy "Rob!" as well as the season premiere date for Season 3 of "Undercover Boss."
"Rob!" which stars Schneider as a bachelor who marries into a tight-knit Mexican family, will bow Jan. 12 at 8:30 p.m. That's bad news for "Rules of Engagement" fans, as the new offering will displace the David Spade sitcom temporarily. According to CBS, "Rules" will return to that time slot — which it had recently taken from "How to Be a Gentleman" — "later this season."
"Rob!" will enjoy a particularly advantageous start, following the consistently popular "The Big Bang Theory" at 8.
Meanwhile, the reality series "Undercover Boss" will return for its third season on Sunday, Jan. 15 at 8 p.m., airing between "60 Minutes" and "The Good Wife" — where "The Amazing Race" currently resides. According to CBS, "The Amazing Race" will also make its return mid-season, at a date to be announced later.
