Cancelled or Renewed CBS TV Shows — updated 07/11

Bleep My Dad SaysCBS has the largest number of TV shows of all of the networks. They keep their schedule pretty consistent but it can still be a challenge to keep track of your favorite TV shows. Have they been cancelled or renewed? When will they be back? Below is a list of all of the regular CBS series that have aired (or are expected to air) during the 2010-11 season (which we consider roughly June 1, 2010 to May 31, 2011).

Using this list you can tell where your favorite CBS series stand; how many episodes are in the current season, when shows will be back and, of course, if they’re already renewed (yea!) or cancelled (boo!).

If you can’t find a particular CBS program on this list, it may have been cancelled last season (2009-10) or perhaps the one before (2008-09). For a list of cancelled shows from all networks, you can go here. It may also be possible that we missed something (horrors!) so feel free to let us know in the comments below.

    Haven’t you noticed a pattern in the cancelling or renewing of shows? Anything that makes you actually think while watching doesn’t last long. That’s why so many dramas and sci-fi shows get cut right away while mindless, voyurism shows (“reality shows”) get renewed season after season. It’s like living in a country run by grade school intellegence. Instead of the studios giving a show a chance to find it’s audiance they would rather pull it and replace it with reruns of another idiotic episode of mindless drivil. It’s all about selling those advertisements. To HELL with quality programming.

    I dont understand why they would cancel a good show like Flashpoint and keep filth like 2 and a half men. Tv is getting smuttier and smuttier. My daughter has gone back to board game night and family nights because she says there is nothing on tv that the kids can watch. So true.

      Be sure to check out Flashpoint on ION starting Oct. 18 at 10pm-12am, if you get it. It’s the new U.S. home of the show. And yeah, there are fewer programs on these days that the family can watch together. Terra Nova seems to be okay in that regard, so far.

    Does anyone read these to care about the shows we think were worthy? CHAOS was fun, good casting. We still loved Chuck. I’m sure there’s a few others, these just come to mind.

    Cancelling Mad Love & Chaos….big mistake. No wonder CBS is so low in their ratings. Who makes these decisions? A retired Howdy Doody, maybe!!!!

    Keep Flashpoint coming, its really down to earth and curtails the killing aspect. Both my husband and I enjoy it.
    I hope you can interest the U.S. in a pure Canadian show.

    Also The Mentalist made it!!!! And now TNT is starting to show re-runs. The only “reality” shows worth a comeback are 60 Minutes and 48 Hours

    I agree about Chaos–how can you cancel it after only three episodes?? It didn’t even have a chance to build a fan base before it was cancelled. I also enjoy Flashpoint–is it coming back?
