CBS on Wednesday unveiled a fall lineup that features five new shows, including another "NCIS" spin-off, and the debut of NFL football on Thursday nights, with a total of eight games.

The addition of football means that most of the network's regular Thursday-night schedule will be put on hold until Oct. 30. The exception is TV's No. 1 comedy, "The Big Bang Theory," which will air on Monday nights and then shift to its regular Thursday lead-off spot when the games conclude.

Of the five new shows, four are dramas. They include "Madam Secretary," starring Téa Leoni as the newly appointed U.S. Secretary of State; "NCIS: New Orleans," a spin-off led by Scott Bakula; "Scorpion," about a team of "brilliant misfits" battling high-tech threats; and "Stalker," a psychological thriller starring Maggie Q and Dylan McDermott as detectives who investigate stalking crimes.

The lone new comedy is "The McCarthys," about members of a sports-crazed Boston family. The cast is led by Laurie Metcalf.

The Thursday night NFL games will kick off on Sept. 11 with a Pittsburgh Steelers-Baltimore Ravens matchup in Baltimore.

Also of note: "NCIS: Los Angeles" is relocating to Monday nights, "The Amazing Race" to Fridays and "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" to Sundays. In addition, the "CSI" franchise will spawn yet another spin-off, this one called "CSI: Cyber," headed by Patricia Arquette, who plays a "cyber-psychologist" crime solver. The spin-off will air at midseason.

Other new midseason shows include "Battle Creek," a crime drama from "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan, and a fresh take on "The Odd Couple," starring Matthew Perry in the Oscar Madison role. Returning shows set for midseason debuts include "The Mentalist," "Mike & Molly," "The Millers" and "Undercover Boss."

Among the shows not returning are "Hostages," "The Crazy Ones" and "Intelligence." And in somewhat of a surprise move, CBS passed on "How I Met Your Dad," a reboot (with a fresh cast) of "How I Met Your Mother," which ended its run earlier this season.
