CBS renews 18 shows including 'Good Wife,' 'Person of Interest'
Big time renewal news! CBS just gave the bulk of its primetime slate an early pickup to return next season, including critically acclaimed drama The Good Wife and first-year comedy 2 Broke Girls. The renewals include four comedies, nine dramas, three reality series and two newsmagazines, some of which have been previously announced.
On the drama side, the network is bringing back NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, Criminal Minds, CSI, The Mentalist, Person of Interest, Blue Bloods and Hawaii Five-0 in addition to The Good Wife.
On the comedy side, CBS renewed 2 Broke Girls and Mike & Molly. Previously, the network announced multi-year pickups for HIMYM and Big Bang Theory. The future of Monday night tent-pole comedy Two and a Half Men is under “preliminary discussions” with studio Warner Bros., CBS says.
Reality shows Amazing Race and Undercover Boss are also getting picked up, with Survivor having already been announced. The network is also bringing back 60 Minutes and 48 Hours Mystery.
Just because a show isn’t on the list doesn’t yet mean it’s cancelled. The fates of titles like CSI: NY, CSI: Miami, Unforgettable and A Gifted Man are still unknown. For more see the link below.
