Schedule Changes for Lost, How I Met Your Mother, House

In the past few days, more scheduling announcements have been made to mess with our heads.  While all the changes have been reflected in our convenient Post-Strike Television Schedule, here are a few of the highlights.

Josh Duhamel, Las Vegas

  • It’s been made official: Come April 24, will move from 9pm to 10pm on Thursdays.  This change will make room for the returns of Grey’s Anatomy and Ugly Betty in their old slots.  (What this means for Eli Stone’s future is unclear.)
  • When returns on March 17th, it will be trading time slots with The Big Bang Theory.  (Mother will air @ 8:30, Bang @ 8:00.)  Meanwhile, the fate of the Neil Patrick Harris comedy beyond this season is still undecided.
  • Monday night will eventually become a new home for Bones and House will begin airing new episodes on that day come April 14; Hugh Laurie and the gang will start anew on April 28 @ 9pm.
  • Certain shows like , Bionic Woman, Big Shots and Life is Wild have not been not granted post-strike episodes because they are not being renewed.  At all.
  • Other programs like , Chuck, Pushing Daisies, Dirty Sexy Money and Private Practice won’t be seen again until next year.

Here you can find a

compilation of the 2008 post-strike schedules

Two notes:

  1. This is the updated schedule as of May 6.  Be prepared to see more changes and settling in the weeks to come.
  2. The list consists of premieres and dates for new episodes.
  3. If a particular time slot/network is not mentioned, either nothing has changed or no specific announcement has been made yet.
