CBS isn’t waiting for the May upfronts to announce most of their renewals. The network has decided to renew 2 Broke Girls, 48 Hours, 60 Minutes, The Amazing Race, Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Elementary, The Good Wife, Hawaii Five-0, The Millers, Mike & Molly, Mom, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, Person of Interest, Two and a Half Men, and Undercover Boss. The Big Bang Theory was renewed for three seasons earlier this week.
The fates of The Crazy Ones, Hostages, Intelligence, and The Mentalist are still up in the air. Their absence from the renewals list certainly isn’t a good sign. You can see a full list of recent/current/upcoming CBS shows here.

CBS, America’s most-watched network, today announced pick-ups for 18 series for next season. Combined with its previously announced pick-ups, CBS has now renewed 20 returning series for the 2014-2015 season, encompassing 17 hours of primetime programming.
“The best way to launch new shows in the fall and throughout the season is to surround them with a strong and stable lineup of successful series,” said Nina Tassler, Chairman of CBS Entertainment. “The shows we’re picking up today cut across every night of the week and feature genre leaders, time-period winners and the most-watched shows on broadcast television.”
The 18 series renewed today comprise 15.5 hours of CBS’s weekly primetime schedule and include nine dramas, five comedies, two reality series and two news programs.
The nine dramas picked up are: NCIS, television’s #1 drama/scripted program for the fifth consecutive year; NCIS: LOS ANGELES, the #2 drama for the fourth straight year; time-period winners Person Of Interest, CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, Hawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods; as well as Criminal Minds, Elementary and the acclaimed drama The Good Wife.
The renewed comedies are 2 Broke Girls, THE MILLERS, which is the #1 freshman comedy of the 2013-2014 season, MIKE & MOLLY, MOM and the long-running hit Two and a Half Men.
In alternative programming, the Network announced pick-ups for its Emmy Award-winning reality series The Amazing Race and Undercover Boss.
Finally, in news, CBS will return 60 Minutes, television’s #1 news program for more than four decades, and 48 HOURS, Saturday’s #1 non-sports program.
In addition to these 18 series, CBS yesterday announced a three-year broadcast deal for The Big Bang Theory. Previously, the Network announced two more editions of the reality series SURVIVOR for next season.
Season-to-date, CBS is television’s #1 network in viewers for the 11th time in 12 years, averaging 10.84 million viewers.
What do you think? Are you glad to hear these shows have been renewed? Which do you watch?
yes iam so happy my shows are coming back. blue blood/ncis/criminal mind/sherlock/mike and molly/csi/ criminal mind supect behavior love all thse show and could you guys put blue blood on twice a week instead of once a week
NCIS and Person of Interest have been one of my favorite shows, POI has the chemistry of actors as NCIS. POI will be another NCIS serials.
NCIS, NCIS:New Orleans, Blue Bloods Criminal Minds and Hot in Cleveland in my opinion, and my family’s are the five best shows on television and we would be very disappointed if any of them were cancelled.
I look so foreward to watching NCIS. They make me feel as though I part of them. They are a family with a great leader, Gibbs. I like Emily but I do miss Cote de Pablo. Can’t wait until next season. No greater show on TV. Watch all reruns on USA network also.
Please renew blue bloods for the sixth season
Blue blood is one if the most interesting serial TV shows that we have watched. Both my husband and I like your show. It really shows how life is lived in New York especially after 911. I have been watching your reruns and they are still interesting . The cast is very good and I like that they are a religious family with togetherness. Please continue making another 5 years in the making.
I NEVER WATCHED IT UNTIL THIS LAST YEAR BECAUSE IT CAME ON SO LATE—AND ON A FRIDAY NIGHT. NOW I WATCH RERUNS IN THE AFT. AND HAVE CAUGHT UP ON THE STORY. IT IS A GREAT SHOW AND IT BETTER NOT BE CANCELLED. THERE IS TOO MUCH GARBAGE SHOWS THAT GO ON AND ON—

2 Broke Girls, Two and a Half Men, & Survivor should not be renewed. Intelligence & Scorpion should be renewed just to name a couple.
