Renewal News: CBS welcomes back 18 series for 2012-2013

In a typically CBS-y fashion, CBS sent out a press release announcing the renewal of 15 shows, to add to the already renewed threesome of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, SURVIVOR, and THE BIG BANG THEORY.

Viewers can breathe a sigh of relief to know that the following shows have all been renewed, as well: 2 BROKE GIRLS, MIKE & MOLLY (not letting that one go, not with an Emmy Winner/Academy Award Nom), NCIS, NCIS: LOS ANGELES, HAWAII FIVE-0, CRIMINAL MINDS, CSI, PERSON OF INTEREST, THE MENTALIST, BLUE BLOODS, THE GOOD WIFE (pictured), THE AMAZING RACE, UNDERCOVER BOSS, 60 MINUTES, and 48 HOURS MYSTERY.

That leaves TWO AND A HALF MEN (which is in preliminary renewal talks), CSI: NEW YORK, CSI: MIAMI, UNFORGETTABLE, ROB, A GIFTED MAN, and RULES OF ENGAGEMENT awaiting their fates during UpFront Week.  Expect more than 1 or 2 of them to be canned. Yet to premiere NYC 22 will also have its fate decided in May, unless it bombs out of the gate.

Thoughts?  What are you happy to see sticking around?


  • i want to see rules of engagement renewed for another season. first season of the show wasn’t that good. but for character developement it was great. the show is hilarious especially with the addition of Adhir Kaylan. Great side kick to David Spade.

    Wow so many renewals! It’s not looking good for those that were not announced. They have to have some pilots in the works right? Make room for some new stuff.

    Glad to see Person of Interest and The Good Wife renewed.
