April Fools: Les Moonves Replaces Big Bang Theory With Two and a Half Women

Lest you thought Ben Silverman was the only funny suit in the TV business, CBS prez Les Moonves took advantage of this April Fools' Day to make the surprise announcement of his network's fake 2010 fall schedule: "Since I know what works, and can get people to watch effectively the same show by doing as little as changing the zip code, I’d be an idiot to take a chance on yet another Alex O’Loughlin vehicle," he said. "Just like Henry Ford would sell you any color Model T as long as it was black, you can watch any show you want on CBS, as long as it’s a near copy of another CBS show." Update: Or maybe TV by the Numbers made up the quotes and the schedule. Either way, we'd totally watch Undercover Flunky.
