CBS Doesn't See Sunday as Mentalist's Permanent Home

Those who like getting their Patrick Jane fix on Tuesdays should not fret that The Mentalist is airing a brand-new episode this Sunday at 10 pm/ET.

"Right now, we are so happy with how it's doing in its current time period, I don't think we'd move it," CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler told reporters Wednesday at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour.

Instead, CBS is hoping to goose the red-hot freshman series' ratings even further - not that it has needed help delivering all-time highs on a recurring basis. "It gets crazy, crazy, insane numbers," Tassler acknowledges, "but I also think there are people that haven't [sampled it]."

This Sunday's episode - in which a business tycoon's son-in-law is found dead near a stolen $50 million painting - is deemed a "great" one by Tassler. It leads out of CBS' coverage of the NFL's AFC Championship Game.

since, i rarely watch shows the night they air and instead i watch them the day after online it doesnt really matter to me what night the mentalist is on, but i liked it better on tuesdays because then i have more of a chance to watch it live instead of the day after.
