CBS Renews Almost All of Its Shows


CBS announced pickups for 18 more of its prime-time shows today, meaning there is not a lot of room in the CBS schedule for any pilots. On the cop-show front, the network renewed NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, Person of Interest, CSI, Hawaii Five-O, Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds, and Elementary. On the comedies about people who hate each other screaming constantly, 2 Broke Girls, The Millers, Mike & Molly, Mom, and Two and a Half Men will also be back. News-wise, 60 Minutes and 48 Hours will return, as will The Amazing Race and Undercover Boss. Survivor and Big Bang Theory were already renewed, which means all that's up in the air are The Mentalist (cop show), The Crazy Ones (shout-y comedy), and Intelligence (cop show). Most important, The Good Wife — which, somehow, is neither a cop show nor a misery comedy — was renewed as well.
