‘We are Men’ axed; ‘Downton’ special set; Carson joins Fox


Miami Herald Wire Services

CBS is making big changes to its Monday night lineup after a disappointing start to the fall season, axing We Are Men after just two episodes and demoting the raunchy sitcom 2 Broke Girls from 9 to 8:30 p.m.

The network will air reruns of its Thursday smash The Big Bang Theory at 9 p.m. for the next few weeks. Then, in November, it will bring Mike & Molly off the bench earlier than planned to fill the crucial time slot.

‘Downton’ special

PBS is setting the table for the Downton Abbey feast with a preview special in December. Return to Downton Abbey will air Dec. 1 with “a tantalizing taste” of the upcoming season, which begins Jan. 5.

Susan Sarandon serves as host for the Masterpiece special, a mix of behind-the-scenes footage, show clips interviews with cast members including Michelle Dockery, Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern and Shirley MacLaine.

The wildly popular drama about British class and culture will move into the Roaring Twenties in the new season.

Carson to Fox

Dr. Ben Carson, Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon and a critic of President Obama’s healthcare reforms, has joined Fox News as a contributor.

Carson rose to prominence in medical circles when he successfully separated conjoined twins in 1987. In recent years, he has built a following for his political views and attacks on political correctness.

Carson made his first appearance for Fox News on Wednesday on Megyn Kelly’s new The Kelly File.
