Additional information about the four new series follows:

PARTNERS, a comedy based on the lives of creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, is about two life-long best friends and business partners whose “bromance” is tested when one of them is engaged to be married.  Joe is an accomplished architect who is newly engaged to Ali, a jewelry designer, while Louis, Joe's gay friend and co-worker, is dating Wyatt, a vegan nurse.  PARTNERS, which stars Michael Urie, David Krumholtz, Sophia Bush and Brandon Routh, premieres Monday, Sept. 24 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT).

VEGAS is a drama inspired by the true story of former Las Vegas Sheriff Ralph Lamb, a rancher tasked with bringing order to 1960s Las Vegas during its rise as a gambling and entertainment mecca. Lamb is pitted against Vincent Savino, a ruthless Chicago gangster who plans to make Vegas his own. The two are locked in an epic battle for control of the budding oasis, and for both men, folding is not an option.  VEGAS stars Dennis Quaid, Michael Chiklis, Carrie-Ann Moss, Jason O'Mara, Taylor Handley and Sarah Jones.  It premieres Tuesday, Sept. 25 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT).

The drama series ELEMENTARY is a contemporary take on the legendary Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, a crime-solving duo that cracks the NYPD's most impossible cases.  Jonny Lee Miller, Lucy Liu and Aidan Quinn star in ELEMENTARY, which premieres Thursday, Sept. 27 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT).

MADE IN JERSEY is a drama about a young working-class woman who uses her street smarts to compete among her pedigreed Manhattan colleagues at a prestigious New York law firm.  The series stars Janet Montgomery, Kristoffer Polaha, Kyle MacLachlan, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Toni Trucks, Erin Cummings and Felix Solis.  It premieres Friday, Sept. 28 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT).

2 BROKE GIRLS will begin its second season on Monday, Sept. 24 (9:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT).  The series is about the unlikely friendship that develops between the sarcastic, street-smart Max Black (Dennings) and the sophisticated, school-smart and once-wealthy Caroline Channing (Behrs). Meeting as waitresses at a diner in trendy Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Max and Caroline form a bond over their dream of one day owning their own successful cupcake business. Only one thing stands in their way – they're broke. In addition to Dennings and Behrs, 2 BROKE GIRLS stars Matthew Moy, Jonathan Kite, Garrett Morris and Jennifer Coolidge.
