Cancelled & Renewed CBS TV Shows for 2011-12

The MentalistCBS has the most total viewers but that doesn’t mean that your favorite shows are necessarily safe. After all, with so many successful shows, they can be picky. Is your favorite CBS TV series returning or has it already been cancelled? What TV shows have already been renewed for another season?

Here’s a list of all of the regular CBS series that have aired (or are expected to air) during the 2011-12 season (what we’re calling roughly September 2011 to August 2012).

Using this “cheat sheet” you can tell where your favorite CBS TV series stands; how many episodes are in the current season, when it’ll be back on the air and, of course, if it’s already been renewed or cancelled.

If you can’t find a particular CBS program on this list, it may have been cancelled last season (2010-11) or perhaps the one before (2009-10). For a list of cancelled shows from all networks, you can go here. It may also be possible that we missed something so feel free to let us know in the comments below.

    what r u people thinking cancelling Unforgettable like that?! For the good of CBS you had better let Person of Interest run a long time.

  2. Krofdorf says

    I don’t think Unforgettable and CSI Miami should not have been cancelled. They are great shows. CSI Miami was my favorite CSI show. You kept many stupid shows. I am very disappointed

  3. L Walker says

    I can’t believe you cancelled CSI Miami and left crap like Survivor and Big Brother on. All the shows we watch are on CBS. Unforgetable was also a good show that you cancelled.

  4. Christy says

    Unforgettable was an awesome show and ya’ll are nuts for taking it off the air!! Seems like every show on TV that has a strong, smart and pretty female character never seems to make it.

  5. Natalya says

    Unforgettable is an excellent show and it’s sad that it was canceled :( I really hope that TNT or Lifetime will pick it up.

  6. Barbara says

    CBS what is wrong with you????? You cancel good shows and leave crap on. Unforgettable was an excellent show and yet you decided to cancel. CSI Miami cancelled. I knew when you moved it to Sunday and most of the time during the football/sports season it ran 30-45 minutes behind schedule. People will not stay up until 11:00 or later to watch a show that was suppose to be on at 9:00/10:00. What is wrong with this picture??? You leave shows like to 2 broke girls on which makes no sense at all, yet you take off shows that actually tell a story. I know you people think that only 18-35 age group watch TV, so that is what you gear you shows towards, however, us older people are the ones that actually do the watching of the shows and you do not value our opinion. Bring back Unforgettable and leave all the other trash off.

    Just another network that has only one show worth watching. Why am I paying for this TV with a satellite subscription when I can get these shows for free?
    Time to cancel my subscription and just keep up with the couple shows online or over the free air.
    Tired of the kiddie shows that insult my intelligence. I don’t care for forced laugh track sitcoms that aren’t funny. All these “reality” shows are a joke too.

  8. Shirley says

    We find it hard to believe you cancelled CSI Maimi. It was the best of the CSI’s. Also Unforgetable! Yet you leave on stupid shows like two and Half men!!!

  9. Gary O. Siegel says

    I regret CBS is cancelling “Unforgettable” and ” CSI Miami”. These are both great shows.

    I guess we will be watching more History channel or reruns on USA

    • Barbara says

      CSI Miami got moved to Sunday and the sports ran overtime therefore CSI got shoved back sometimes as much as 45 minutes and lot of people will not stay up to watch a program that was suppose air at 9/10 time slot when it airs 45 minutes later.
      Unforgettable was a good show with good characters and, low and behold, a PLOT, not like all the reality shows that are FAKE. Remember CBS all your viewers are not 18-35, but older people that actually have time to watch the shows presented. Get your head screwed on straight and bring back quality TV, not the crap you have been giving us.

  10. says

    please do not cancelled Harry’s Law, The Finder, The secret circle,CSI:Miami , Unforgettable ,Terra Nova and Who do you think you are. many channel like nbc, abc,fox,cw,cbs,usa,tbs,tnt and abc family

  11. doris says

    Most of my favorite shows are on CBS and I’m glad that most are being renewed. I always watched CSI Miami even though it wasn’t my favorite of the CSI’s. A note to CBS: Can you Please bring Missing to your channel. ABC was dumb enough to cancel it!!

  12. Sandra Roberson says

    CBS killed CSI Miami when they moved it to Sunday night. When sports go over their time allotment they should just cut off. This hurts all the shows on Sunday night. They also changed the pace of Miami by showing them running to crime scenes all the time. What happened to all the personal touches to the show? No love interest for Horatio, Callie and Eric going cold, poor Ryan always in trouble. If you had left it on Monday nights and kept the personal touches we could still be watching it. BAh Humbug CBS

    How are your ratings now CBS. Down the drain where you threw the best TV shows and viewers left hanging. We have all decided to protest. What you did to Unforgettable will not go unnoticed. Carrie and the Team was excellent actors and you left us without an ending. But you keep crap on for years. What are you thinking and who make such
    a harsh and brainless decision. Are you really that out of touch? Well – we’re out of touch with you and you’re going to notice. That show could have held a respectable audience share for years. But no – and you didn’t even give us an ending. Are you people watching too many of your own shows – reality – two and a half men – are you stupid or just all about money. Too bad – you threw away a good thing and a few million viewers without even a thought as to how attached we were – how into it – how excited and you didn’t even give us an ending. Well we’re giving you one! Bye! Mark II
