“Two and a Half Men,” with Ashton Kutcher replacing Charlie Sheen, stays put on Monday. CBS executives wouldn’t give any details about how Kutcher will be written into the series, or how Sheen will be written out.

CBS also took the unusual step of scheduling the comedy “Rules of Engagement” on Saturday, a once-popular night for TV that broadcast networks have essentially abandoned to reruns and sports to save money.

The network is canceling “The Defenders,” “Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior,” “Mad Love” and “(Bleep) My Dad Says.”
