In a move that surprised pretty much nobody on the face of the Earth, CBS yanked the incredibly lame sitcom "We Are Men" off its Monday-night schedule and announced that "Mike & Molly" will be returning sooner rather than later.That's two episodes and out for "We Are Men," a show whose ratings were almost as bad as it was.It's a little more complicated than just "M&M" replacing "WAM," however:— Beginning Monday, "2 Broke Girls" moves up a half hour to 7:30 p.m. MT, the slot filled by "We Are Men" for the past two weeks.— Also on Monday, repeats of "The Big Bang Theory" take over the 8 p.m. Time slot for three weeks.—On Monday, Nov. 4, "Mike & Molly" returns for its third season.Still up in the air is the fate of "Hostages," which has been performing quite poorly for CBS on Mondays at 9 p.m.
