Person of Interest, Unforgettable: CBS Shows Get Full Seasons

Unforgettable and Person of Interest TV showsThe Tiffany network has announced that they’re giving full season orders to Unforgettable and Person of Interest. The newbie dramas air on Tuesday and Thursday nights, respectively. While they are doing decently, neither show is a big hit — despite what the network may lead you to believe.

Unforgettable is currently ranking 14th out of the network’s 20 scripted series. If you take already-cancelled How to Be a Gentleman and the network’s three Friday night dramas out of the equation, Unforgettable is the third from the bottom, beating only CSI: Miami and The Good Wife.

Doing a bit better, Person of Interest ranks 12th on the list of CBS’ 20 scripted fall shows. It’s usually in third place in its timeslot though and last year, CBS was doing significantly better with CSI at 9pm.

For the good news, here’s the CBS press release:

CBS GIVES FULL SEASON ORDERS TO TELEVISION’S #1 AND #2 NEW DRAMAS – “UNFORGETTABLE” AND “PERSON OF INTEREST”

    I haven’t been able to watch a full episode of Person of Interest, strictly because of that “silly” box that floats around the screen, pointing the obvious person of interest out. duh. it’s rather annoying.

  5. Lisa says

    Unforgettable is awesome. insightful. what a concept. Mary-Lou Henner’s life story. who knew. i love every minute of it. the one show i actually can’t wait to see.

    The only show I bother to watch regularly is Person of Interest. I will be extremely disappointed if this show is not renewed for another season. It is totally captivating. You never know how it is going to end, and it keeps you spellbound right until the very end. Jim Caviezel is awesome and the intricate plots are captivating. Needs to stay on!

    I look forward to both nights for Person of Intrest & Unforgettable. Person of Intrest if by far my favorite, Jim Caviezel is a very dynamic actor. I have evjoyed every movie and show he has ever done. He played a great part in the movie Angel Eyes and I remember him in Frequency as well.
    I also enjoy Unforgettable with Poppy Montgomery whom I remember in the series called Without a Trace where she played an FBI agent. I like the way she is able to see a crime scene once and is able to go back as many times as she has to to gather more information.
    I am really glad that Person of Intrest and Unforgettable have been picked up for a full season and I hope and look forward to seeing many more episodes of both shows.
