Here are the 10 most-read television stories published on Adweek.com in 2011:  

CBS Changes Every Night of the Week

CBS, the most-watched network, will introduce five new shows this fall (three dramas, two sitcoms), with changes impacting every evening of the week. All three members of the CSI franchise, surprisingly, made the cut, but granddaddy CSI, which heads into season 12, shifts to Wednesdays at 10 p.m. (in place of canceled Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior).  Also relocating to a new night is Emmy favorite The Good Wife, which moves to Sundays at 9 p.m. (in place of Undercover Boss, which returns in midseason), and, oddly, returning comedy Rules of Engagement, which will anchor Saturday at 8 p.m.  Leading out of Rules of Engagement will be sitcom repeats.  After years with no network willing to take a risk on Saturday, consider unfortunately doomed Rules a step in the right direction.
