CBS has joined FOX, ABC and The CW in announcing its Fall premiere schedule.  (See Mitch Metcalf on the calculations that go into these announcements HERE).  As with the other networks, most premieres will be the week of Sept. 19-25, with a few exceptions:
Wed Sept 14:  early premiere of SURVIVOR
Mon Sept 19:  2 BROKE GIRLS premieres out of time slot, given the benefit of airing after the season opener of 2 1/2 MEN, which is sure to have a ratings bump that night over curiosity about the Sheen/Kutcher transition
Thurs Sept 29:  HOW TO BE A GENTLEMAN debuts a week late (probably so the network can use an extra THE BIG BANG THEORY the previous week to give PERSON OF INTEREST a good lead-in for its premiere).

That just leaves little old NBC…
