Two of CBS' freshman series, Blue Bloods and The Defenders, are trading prime-time real estate next month. CBS announced Tuesday that Blue Bloods will air Wednesdays at 10/9c for one month beginning Jan. 19. To make room, The Defenders will then permanently move to Fridays at 8/7c starting Feb. 4, two weeks after the series finale of Medium. The swap makes sense for CBS. The network's five new shows are the top-rated new series of the TV season, and Blue Bloods has shown surprising strength on Fridays, where it is averaging 12.3 million viewers. As the lead-out to CBS' veteran hits Survivor and Criminal Minds, The Defenders' average of 10 million viewers is less impressive. Whether or not The Defenders will be a strong enough lead-in for CSI: NY at 9/8c remains to be seen. To Read More Click Here.
With no disrespect to Jerry O'Connell and Jim Belushi, CBS's The Defenders has just taken a significantly sexier turn with the addition of Latin star Kuno Becker in a new recurring role. Kuno, 32, will appear on the Vegas-set series as a Cuban bad boy named Alex Velasco, who is too smart for his own good. Having previously worked as an undercover DEA agent, Alex is now stuck working as a repo man. His street sense, edge and ability to break into places make him a great asset to the firm. This is the first recurring American TV role for Kuno, who has mainly worked in his native Mexico. He starts shooting this week and his episodes will start appearing in early 2011.
