"Bleep!" happens at CBS. The network is expected to cancel freshman sitcoms "(Bleep!) My Dad Says" and "Mad Love," along with the Las Vegas-based legal drama "The Defenders," in favor of at least two new fall series. One is a criminal procedural: "Person of Interest" stars Jim Caviezel as a former CIA agent presumed dead, who teams up with a mysterious billionaire, played by "Lost's" Michael Emerson, to stop violent crimes in New York City. J.J. Abrams is one of the show's producers. The other new CBS series is a comedy called "Two Broke Girls," about a pair of 22-year-old women played by Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs who take on New York City. Michael Patrick King of "Sex and the City" fame wrote the pilot, which was directed by TV comedy's best director James Burrows--certainly a good sign. CBS will unveil its fall 2011 lineup this Wednesday.
