When "Hawaii Five-0" returns to CBS for its fourth season this fall, it won’t be on Monday nights.

The network announced Wednesday the show will replace "CSI: NY" on Fridays, opening up a Monday time slot for the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced "Hostages" starring Toni Collette and Dylan McDermott.

The move includes a time change, with "Five-0" airing at 8 p.m. in Hawaii between "Undercover Boss" and the cop drama "Blue Bloods," which stars Tom Selleck of "Magnum P.I." fame.

"Hawaii Five-0" executive producer Peter Lenkov remained upbeat about the changes on Twitter, telling followers to "celebrate we got picked up" and "continue to show up and we’ll be around for a LONG time."

The move to Fridays was also a "chance (for) more live eyes," he said, referring to the large number of viewers who record the show for later viewing.

The Monday lineup will see a small Hawaii connection, although that won’t be until midseason. Josh Holloway, formerly of ABC’s "Lost," which shot six seasons in the islands, will star in the midseason replacement "Intelligence," which is set to follow the 15-episode run of "Hostages," said Nina Tassler, president of CBS entertainment.

A premiere date has not been set for the fourth season of "Five-0."
