Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan is headed back to Sunday nights. CBS has just announced that the Gilligan-produced drama Battle Creek will air Sunday nights at 10, right after The Good Wife, starting March 1. Battle Creek, a collaboration between Gilligan and House vet David Shore, revolves around a pair of oddball cops in Michigan (Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters) fighting crime and each other. It replaces CSI, which will air its season (and very possibly series) finale in mid-February. CBS will also try to launch a new CSI series, CSI: Cyber, slotting the newcomer Wednesdays at 10 beginning March 4. The scheduling moves are pretty logical: CBS is putting its new prestige drama behind its most prestigious drama on Sundays, while the new meat-and-potatoes crime show will get a lead-in from the very CBS-y Criminal Minds. Set your DVRs accordingly.
