(AP) Four weeks into the new television season, and the performance of two important nights for comedy are no laughing matter at CBS and NBC.
CBS' long-dominant Monday night schedule has shown surprising weakness this season, and the network has already shuffled its lineup to seek improvement. On deck is the return of "Mike & Molly," which the network hopes can bring back some good vibes.
NBC says its top priority this season was establishing a night of broader, more popular comedies on Thursdays. So far, shows led by Sean Hayes and Michael J. Fox are disappointments in the ratings.
