CBS Renews 18 Shows Including 'NCIS,' 'The Good Wife' & More!


Right on the heels of 'The Big Bang Theory's three-season pickupCBS has decided to completely open up the TV floodgates by giving early renewals to 18 more shows for the 2014-2015 season. And while most of these were pretty much thought of as shoe-ins right from the start, the real surprise lies within who has yet to make the cut.

A total of nine dramas got the go ahead for another season order, all of which are becoming long-standing pillars in the network's community. 'NCIS,' 'NCIS: Los Angeles,' 'Person of Interest,' 'CSI,' 'Hawaii Five-0,' 'Blue Bloods,' 'Criminal Minds,' 'Elementary,' and 'The Good Wife' all will live to see another year.

Not to be completely outdone, the comedies raked in an impressive five renewals (not counting 'Big Bang Theory,' of course), which consisted of old favorites '2 Broke Girls,' 'Mike & Molly,' and 'Two and a Half Men,' as well as popular freshman sitcoms 'The Millers' and 'Mom.'

Rounding out the list are the network's reality shows, with 'Undercover Boss,' 'The Amazing Race, '60 Minutes,' and '48 Hours' all nabbing new season orders. ('Survivor's renewal had already been announced earlier on.)

Notice any big names that are missing? 'The Mentalist' is conspicuously absent from this line-up, which is enough to make any dedicated fan very, very nervous. Could this be the end of the road for Patrick Jane & Co.?

Other CBS shows still on the bubble include 'Intelligence,' 'Hostages,' 'The Crazy Ones,' and any shows still waiting to premiere — such as 'Friends With Better Lives,' which bows on Monday, March 31.

Person of Interest just keeps getting better and better. I love Shaw's one-liners. Absolutely perfect casting and even though Root is essential I still don't like her.

I agree that Intelligence has turned out to be quite a good show.  I'm liking it more every week and would hate to see it not get a chance to keep improving.  I hope CBS gives it the chance it deserves and renews it.

The problem with The Crazy Ones is tough to renew due to the new NFL contract and the fact they just changed the time slot and the ratings improved... Not to mention the money being paid to the main actors... This might be a case of they use contract negotiations to decide to renew or not.

Intelligence is turning out to be very good. I'd had to see them cancel that without giving it a try. It's a great role for Josh Holloway and Marg Helgenberger.

Hmm. If they are going to end The Mentalist they really should have done it last season. The conclusion to the Red John story would have been the perfect ending for the whole show and leaving it till now makes you feel jyped as the show has just started a completely new chapter.

Wow. Now THAT'S a mass renewal. I'm going to have to perform major updates to my "primetime prognostication" grids over the next few days. :)
