CBS shuffles schedule

'Miami Medical' to air Fridays; 'Accidentally' to Wednesdays

This just isn't the season for medical dramas.

NBC's "Trauma" and CBS' "Three Rivers" have fallen short in the ratings and NBC's "Mercy" has struggled on Wednesdays, and now CBS has elected to slot Jerry Bruckheimer's new midseason drama "Miami Medical" on tough-crowd Friday nights.

Also, CBS will push Monday weak-link comedy "Accidentally on Purpose" to Wednesdays, while bringing relief pitcher "Rules of Engagement" back into the game.

"Medical" is about a team of young Florida surgeons who "thrive on the adrenaline rush of working at one of the premiere trauma facilities in the country while drawing upon their wit and irreverence to survive on the edge."

The drama will premiere April 2 at 10 p.m., taking over for "Numbers," which will have completed its season order. "Rules" returns March 1, with "Accidentally" making its Wednesday debut on March 31.
