TV Bulletin Board (March 24)

Strong ratings in a Friday prime-time slot have spurred CBS to give The Price Is Right Million Dollar Spectacular a May "sweeps" showcase.

The Drew Carey-hosted evergreen will be the network's lead-off hitter for four straight Wednesdays, beginning April 30th.

CBS also will be plugging in new episodes of James Woods' Shark while relocating the legal drama from Sundays to Tuesdays at 8 p.m. (central). Shark's restart on April 29 does not bode well for The Unit, whose time slot it's taking. No new episodes of the military drama were ordered when the writers' strike ended earlier this year.

*** Fort Worth native Bob Schieffer has delayed his retirement and will soldier on indefinitely as host of CBS' Face the Nation, where he's presided since 1982.

Schieffer, 71, had planned to retire shortly after Inauguration Day. But he's reconsidered at the request of CBS News president Sean McManus, The New York Times reports.
