CBS Renews Good Wife, Person of Interest, Mentalist, Hawaii Five-0, and More for 2012-13

CBS TV shows renewedThe Tiffany network has taken some suspense out of the May upfronts by renewing 18 of their primetime shows for 2012-13. Returning comedies are 2 Broke Girls and Mike & Molly, in addition to already renewed How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory. The network’s highest-rated show, Two and a Half Men, is expected to return as well.

On the drama side, the CBS schedule will have NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, Hawaii Five-0, Criminal Minds, CSI, Person of Interest, The Mentalist, Blue Bloods, and The Good Wife. For non-scripted fare, 60 Minutes, 48 Hours Mystery, The Amazing Race, and Undercover Boss will all be back. Survivor was previously renewed for next season.

Still up in the air are shows Rules of Engagement, ¡ROB!, Unforgettable, CSI: Miami, CSI: New York, and A Gifted Man. We can expect at least a couple of these to be cancelled to make way for new fall programming.

Here’s the press release from CBS:

CBS ANNOUNCES RENEWALS FOR 18 PRIMETIME SHOWS FOR THE 2012-2013 SEASON

Renewals Showcase the Strength, Stability and Success of Television’s #1 Network

The renewals include four comedies, nine dramas, three reality series and two newsmagazines. The returning shows encompass every night of the week and every hour, many of which are #1 in their time period and some #1 on the entire night.

The renewed comedies include the previously announced multi-year pickups of HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER and THE BIG BANG THEORY, the season’s #1 comedy and the first scripted program to top “American Idol” in viewers and adults 18-49; 2 BROKE GIRLS, the season’s #1 new comedy in viewers and key demographics; and sophomore hit MIKE & MOLLY.

Also in comedy, CBS and Warner Bros. Television are in preliminary discussions regarding future seasons for TWO AND A HALF MEN.

Renewed dramas are NCIS, television’s #1 drama/scripted program for the third consecutive year; NCIS: LOS ANGELES, the #2 drama for the second straight year; HAWAII FIVE-0, CRIMINAL MINDS, CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, PERSON OF INTEREST, the #1 new series of the season, THE MENTALIST, BLUE BLOODS and the award-winning and critically acclaimed THE GOOD WIFE.

Among the Network’s returning reality series are THE AMAZING RACE, UNDERCOVER BOSS and the previously renewed SURVIVOR.

Television’s top newsmagazines, 60 MINUTES and 48 HOURS MYSTERY, will also return in the fall.

“This large-scale renewal is testimony to the strength, stability and success of a deep and diverse roster of top-rated programming,” said Nina Tassler, President, CBS Entertainment. “It positions us for continued success next season and certainly creates an environment that will give our new shows the best possible chance to succeed.”

Season-to-date, CBS is first in viewers (12.13m) and adults 25-54 (4.1/10) and a strong second in adults 18-49 (3.1/08). The Network is posting across-the-board year-to-year growth, up +1% in viewers, +2% in adults 25-54 and +3% in adults 18-49.

Thanks for keeping Blue Bloods, CSI, NCIS, NCIS Los Angles, The Good Wife, Criminal Minds, Hawaii 5 O, Person of Interest. All are favorites and very well done.

Please reconsider cancelling the following:
A Gifted Man
Unforgettable
CSI Miami
CSI New York

CBS is the network most watched by me and has been for years due to the quality of the programs.

If you must cancel any of these 4 my first choice would be CSI Miami only because it has been on the longest.

The “NEW” two and a half men is just not up to the old show. Bring Charlie Sheen back!!!!
The show needs him!!! Ashton is just not up to replacing Charlie. Get rid of the guy who fired him and have him apologize to us!!!

“BLUE BLOODS” IS OUR FAVORITE SHOW FOR FRIDAY NIGHTS, PLEASE DON’T
EVEN THINK ABOUT CANCELING THEM.
“CRIMINAL MINDS” IS OUR FAVORITE SHOW FOR WEDNESDAY NIGHTS, NEVER CANCEL THAT SHOW EITHER.
“HAWAII-FIVE-O IS ANOTHER OF OUR FAVORITE SHOWS ON WEDNESDAY NIGHTS, PLEASE DON’T EVER CANCEL THEM EITHER.

“CASTLE” AND “BODY OF PROOF” ARE TWO MORE OF OUR FAVORITES, THESE ARE ALL MOST ENTERTAINING AND THEY ARE WORTH KEEPING. “CASTLE” ON MONDAY, ABC, AND “BODY OF PROOF” ON TUESDAYS FIT RIGHT IN WITH GOOD VIEWING. PLEASE KEEP THESE SHOWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I AM SO GLAD NCIS IS BEING RENEWED FOR SEASON 10. MY HUSBAND AND I WATCH IT EVERY TUES. THIS IS OUR FAVORITE SHOW. SEASON 9 HAS BROUGHT MORE MYSTERY, SURPRISES, SPECIAL GUEST, AND LAUGHTER. THIS SHOW HAS NEVER DISSAPOINTED US EVER. AS I SAID A FEW MONTHS AGO AND AS THE CAST ALSO HAS SAID ON THERE ROUND TABLE TALKS THEIR LIKE A FAMILY AND YOU CAN TELL THAT IN EACH SEASON. SURPRISES NEVER STOP AND THEIR ALL GREAT. THE WRITTERS HAVEN’T SLOWED DOWN ON KEEPING US INTERESTED EVERY WEEK, THIS SHOW TO US DOESN’T SHOW ANY LETTING UP ON SURPRISING US. GREAT JOB TO EVERYONE.

CSI New York is the best of the three although CSI has improved vastly since DB Russell has arrived. The only reason to watch CSI Miami is for the sunglasses – best actor by far!!!

Keep A Gifted Man! It is my favorite show to watch on Friday nights.
