CBS shifts some season finale dates, sends Harper's Island to Siberia Saturdays


Not out of the woods yet: Harper's Island moves to Saturdays.

CBS had hoped to have the next killer app with Harper's Island, its weekly countdown of dead bodies.

But the high-visibility time slot -- Thursdays after CSI: Crime Scene Investigation -- and heavy promotion haven't worked quite as expected. So Harper's Island is being sent to dead-end Saturdays to do the rest of its killing, effective May 2nd at 8 p.m. central.

The network also has changed three of its series finale dates. Here are the revised closeouts:

May 14 -- CSI: NY
May 20 -- The New Adventures of Old Christine and Gary Unmarried

Also, Criminal Minds now will get a two-hour finale on May 20th.
