Today's Box Office: Preview of new CBS shows

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- THV 11 Film Critic Jonathan Nettles couldn't find a movie so instead he's talking about the new CBS shows.

This week, the local theaters didn't have any new movies showing on Thursday night which created quite the conundrum for this film critic. How can I review a movie if I haven't seen it? I can say things like "it should be good" or "it has an actor/director/producer whose work is usually good" but often I've said that about a film before going to see it and I've been disappointed. So, what does a film critic do when he hasn't seen a movie for his weekly segment? Sometimes, a gift like CBS premiere week drops in your lap.

Let's talk about these new CBS shows.

On September 23rd, CBS launches the fall season (that means new shows) and this year, they're giving us 3 comedies, 1 drama, and 1 looks-like-a dramedy.

New leads develop in search for date robbery suspect

SEARCY, Ark. (KTHV) - On a social networking website called Tagged, a Searcy woman met a man who took her on a date. Following the date, the two return to the woman's house to watch a movie. After falling asleep, the man reportedly woke the woman up, asking for gas money.

Corporal Steve Hernandez with the Searcy Police Department said, "The suspect then pulled a gun out from somewhere and held it on her and made her drive to her ATM."

The woman withdrew the money and the man dropped her back off at her home before fleeing with the money. The suspect has been identified as a man known as "Truuu."

Once the news spread through social media, Searcy Police were able to gather a few leads that pointed them to Little Rock, where Little Rock Police got involved. Hernandez said, "They actually were able to pick a suspect up that matches the description of what we are looking for."
