Partners, from Will & Grace's Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, is described as a personal story of two lifelong friends and their business partners. Architects Charlie (David Krumholtz) and Louis' (Michael Urie) friendship has lasted longer than either of their romantic relationships and almost seems like a weird marriage.

James Burrows directed the pilot. Airs Mondays at 8:30 p.m. after How I Met Your Mother.

Vegas is a period drama set in the 1960s and based on the true story of Ralph Lamb (Dennis Quaid) -- a rodeo cowboy-turned-longtime Sheriff of Las Vegas. Michael Chiklis, Jason O'Mara and Carrie-Anne Moss round out the cast of the drama from Nicholas Pileggi (GoodFellas), Greg Walker (Without a Trace) and James Mangold (Walk the Line). Airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. after NCIS: Los Angeles.

Made in Jersey is a legal drama that centers on a working-class woman (Janet Montgomery) who uses her street smarts to compete with her more polished colleagues at a top New York law firm. Airs Fridays at 9 p.m. following CSI: NY in its new time slot.
