CBS Pushes ‘Angel From Hell’ to Midseason, Moves Up ‘2 Broke Girls’

New comedy stars Jane Lynch, Maggie Lawson, and Kevin Pollak

The premiere of new CBS comedy “Angel from Hell” has been pushed to midseason, the network announced Wednesday.

Instead of premiering on Nov 5. as originally planned, the Jane Lynch/Maggie Lawson comedy will bow in February 2016. “2 Broke Girls,” which was originally to premiere at the midseason mark, will now have its fifth season premiere on Nov. 12.

CBS will air a rerun of “The Big Bang Theory” at 9:30 p.m. on Nov. 5. The network’s schedule will shift at the end of October as Thursday Night Football comes to an end. At that time, “Big Bang Theory” will move to Thursday nights.

“Angel from Hell” stars Jane Lynch as a woman named Amy claiming to be the guardian angel of Dr. Allison Fuller (Lawson). Despite giving Fuller seemingly bad advice, the two form an unlikely friendship. Kevin Pollak also stars as Fuller’s father.

Tad Quill created and will executive produce the series alongside Don Scardino. CBS Television Studios is producing.
