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.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE renew Dogs in the City. Justin Silver’s techniques w/ training are spot-on, and his suggestions are really helpful.

  2. Mike says

    Does anyone know what’s happening to DOGS IN THE CITY?
    Next week is just the 6th episode, but the pre-show info says Season Finale.
    However this website says ‘neither renewed or cancelled’.
    Personally, we love the show, but we were also hooked on Unforgettable and that’s gone.

      Mike » They only ordered six episodes of Dogs and it hasn’t been cancelled or renewed for season two yet. As the table notes, Unforgettable was cancelled but was later saved/renewed.

    I am very sorry to see that they have canceled A Gifted Man and Unforgettable. I wish you would re-think this……..they were neat shows, much better than all of those tired reality shows.

  4. Diane says

    I wish you would put The Good Wife on a better time slot! I think its a GREAT show and if time was earlier it would do better. Could replace the empty brained “comedies” and canned laughter

  5. Bree says

    I’m happy to see Criminal Minds back for another season YES! But they need to bring back CSI: Miami I enjoyed that show. Cancel CSI: New York instead
