"We Are Men"? Or "We Are Canceled"?

CBS on Wednesday announced changes that are quickly coming to its Monday lineup. As of Oct. 14, "2 Broke Girls" will move down to 8:30 p.m. ET/PT from its 9 p.m. slot, replacing "We Are Men," which has been pulled from the schedule.

Repeats of the CBS hit Thursday comedy "The Big Bang Theory" will air at 9 p.m. ET/PT for the next two weeks before making way for the fourth season return of "Mike & Molly" in November. Freshman comedy "Mom," meanwhile, will remain in its 9:30 p.m. ET/PT slot. As does the leader of the night, "How I Met Your Mother" at 8 p.m. ET/PT, now in its last season.

While the comedy block is in a bit of flux, the drama hour of CBS' Monday night is still intact.  Thriller drama "Hostages" caps off the night at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The network's foray with limited series "Hostages" hasn't proved to be a ratings stalwart -- and, as our friends at Company Town noted earlier, that could put it in jeopardy.
