CBS Going Ahead With J.J. Abrams and Kat Dennings Pilots


CBS has decided to join in on today's pickup madness, handing out its first two series pickups for next season. Getting green lights: The J.J. Abrams/Jonah Nolan drama Person of Interest and the Michael Patrick King/Whitney Cummings comedy Two Broke Girls. The former stars Lost alum Michael Emerson, along with Taraji P. Henson and James Caviezel, in an off-kilter crime procedural; the latter is about two 22-year-olds (Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs) making a go of it in New York City. If you're keeping score, Team J.J. is now 2-2 with pilots this season.
