CBS Renews Elementary, The Good Wife, NCIS, Person of Interest, The Millers, and 13 More Shows

Hot on the heels of yesterday's news that The Big Bang Theory will be around for three more seasons, CBS has announced a sweeping renewal for most of its lineup. And when I say sweeping, I really mean sweeping! In what is becoming an annual tradition, the network today ordered new seasons of 18 of its shows.

On the drama side, NCIS and its spin-off NCIS: Los Angeles will be back for Season 12 and Season 6, respectively. Person of Interest will be back for Season 3, CSI for Season 15, Hawaii Five-0 for Season 5, Blue Bloods for Season 5, Criminal Minds for Season 10, Elementary for Season 3, and The Good Wife for Season 6. 

On the comedy side, the network wants more of 2 Broke Girls (returning for Season 4), Mike & Molly (returning for Season 5), freshman series Mom and The Millers, and for whatever reason, Two and a Half Men (returning for Season 12). Come on, isn't it about time to set Jon Cryer free, CBS? Isn't it about time we started respecting ourselves?

In non-scripted programing news, CBS has also asked for new cycles of the hit reality shows The Amazing Race and Undercover Boss

Finally, newsmagazines 60 Minutes and 48 Hours will return to make sure we're all at least pretending to pay attention to non-entertainment news.

Between today's mass renewal, yesterday's Big Bang Theory news, and December's Survivor re-up, it's hard to believe that CBS still has any decisions to make, but indeed it does. Shows still awaiting their fates are The Crazy OnesIntelligence, Hostages, and Friends With Better Lives, the last of which premieres later this month after the series finale of How I Met Your Mother.


Which renewal excites you the most? Which of these shows would you like to see die in a fire?

    I'm only happy about the renewal of Person of Interest (and 2 Broke Girls).

  • udobald Apr 17, 2014

    I really hoped they would cancel some of these shows so I didn't have to watch them anymore.

    Glad that they have picked up Elementary, Blue Bloods and The Good Wife for another season at least.

    Intelligence deserves picking up too.

    Hostages on the other hand should be laid to rest.

    Big Bang Theory - umm what if Penny became a successful actress - and get us involved in the episodes of her show where SHE plays a sexy scientist and let the crew critique the content etc. Penny marries Leonard and above all LOVES him and is extremely loyal - but still goofy - she pays back everyone with interest, but keeps her apt. (just upgrades it) because she doesn't think her success will last... OR...you know.
