Big Bang Theory
CBS is making some major changes to its fall premiere lineup, thanks to some surprising numbers pulled in by repeats of "The Big Bang Theory."

The Eye network was so impressed with how old episodes of TV's number one comedy performed on Monday nights, that it's keeping its "BBT" block intact for another three weeks, affecting the premieres of both "Mom" and "The Millers." New episodes of "Big Bang" will continue to air in the 8 p.m. slot, and a rerun will air at 8:30 p.m., followed at 9 p.m. by new episodes of freshman drama "Scorpion."

"Mom," which was supposed to debut its second season on September 29, will now be pushed to October 30, and air behind new episodes of "Big Bang" on Thursday nights, instead of its planned Monday slot. "The Millers" was supposed to occupy that spot, but instead will have its season premiere on October 20, kicking off the Monday comedy block at 8 p.m.

Of course, CBS won't be done with the musical chairs after that. "Mom" and "The Millers" will swap nights again beginning in January. Phew.

Check out the full updated CBS lineup below, and try not to get too confused.
