CBS puts ‘Threshold’ on a two-week hiatus

Network officials at CBS are doing triage to the weak link in an otherwise wining Friday night lineup. They have taken an unusual move and pulled a scheduling switch after the beginning of November sweeps.

For now, the network is pulling Threshold off the air for two weeks. The show will return Tuesday, November 22 at 10/9c p.m. airing after lead-in Amazing Race.

Starting this week, Threshold‘s current 9/8c Friday night timeslot will be taken by drama Close to Home, which has been struggling at 10 p.m. Tuesdays against older-skewing television programs, NBC’s Law and Order and ABC’s Boston legal. The move also will mean Threshold will not be competing against the Sci Fi Channel’s primetime Friday lineup.
