CBS President on Good Wife Time Slot, Mike & Molly Wedding, Vagina Jokes and More!

With her network clobbering all others in ratings, and with only one new show premiering this season - the horrific Rob - CBS President Nina Tassler took to the stage today at the Television Critics Association press tour and answered questions regarding a number of steady performers. Among the highlights from her panel, along with those sprinkled in from other network guests: No, CBS is not happy with the football overruns pushing back The Good Wife almost every Sunday, but "the show feels like a better fit on Sunday night. More importantly, the audience that does watch the show on Sunday is more upscale, more female and very engaged." Ashton Kutcher has a new, clean look (above) and the reason why will be addressed on Monday's Two and a Half Men . While confirming 2 Broke Girls will likely continue to use the diner as a setting, Tassler responded to criticism over risque storylines with the line of the week: "Vagina is not indecent."  A Mike & Molly wedding will almost definitely take place in May.
