YES!!! Great news for frustrated CBS fans. I don’t know why they didn’t do this sooner.

CBS is trying out a new play it hopes will ease primetime confusion — and save fans of shows such as The Good Wife and The Mentalist much frustration! — on the days the network hosts NFL doubleheaders.

On Sundays featuring back-to-back afternoon football games, CBS will push back its entire primetime lineup half an hour in the Eastern and Central time zones. That means 60 Minutes will begin at 7:30/6:30c, leading into Big Brother/The Amazing Race at 8:30. The Good Wife follows at 9:30, and the relocated The Mentalist closes the night at 10:30.

Though DVRs and on-screen cable guides will automatically pick up on the shifts, the affected Sundays are as follows: Sept. 16 and 23; Oct. 7 and 21; Nov. 4 and 18; and Dec. 2, 16 and 30. Also to be noted: Primetime start times in Mountain and Pacific time zones will not change.
