CBS Renews 11 Series, but Not Supergirl, Limitless, and Others... Yet

It was a good Friday indeed for a truckload of CBS shows, as the network renewed 11 series today in one fell swoop. Popping the champagne today will be:

Blue Bloods (Season 7)
Elementary (Season 5)
Hawaii Five-0 (Season 7)
Madam Secretary (Season 3)
Mom (Season 4)
NCIS: Los Angeles (Season 8)
NCIS: New Orleans (Season 3)
Scorpion (Season 3)
2 Broke Girls (Season 6)
Survivor (Season 33)
The Amazing Race (Season 29)

The Big Bang Theory and NCIS were previously renewed, but they can still open a bottle of bubbly if they want to since they both make a bazillion dollars for CBS. The Good WifePerson of Interest, Mike & Molly, and Angel From Hell were previously canceled. 

You'll notice that several shows aren't on the renewals list, including Criminal MindsCSI: CyberThe Odd CoupleUndercover Boss, and every show in its first seasonLimitlessSupergirlLife in Pieces, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, and Code Black. Additionally, CBS will be premiering Rush Hour next week. 

There's no explanation for the delay in decisions for these shows, but for the four veteran shows, it definitely doesn't look good (though Undercover Boss can be revived at a moment's notice). CBS boss Les Moonves previously hinted that he was considering renewing about five of CBS's new shows this season, so if I'm making some guesses, I'd say CBS sticks with LimitlessSupergirlLife in Pieces, and... Code Black? And sight unseen, let's throw Rush Hour in there as well. Sorry, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.

What do you make of these renewals? Are you happy? Sad? Confused? TELL US!

I'm already upset over Person of Interest, and surprised at Criminal Minds even though it has had a long run. But Limitless and Supergirl both deserve to be renewed.

I loved limitless. and i'm tired of them always changing sitcoms. it's like whoever controls what stays and what goes can't get their act together (no pun intended) and figure out what they want.

That they canceled person of interest is sad, especially when they renew scorpion for a freaking 3rd season :s don't understand are they getting payed by the creator to air that terrible show... and then they canceled limitless( witch was unexpectedly pretty descend) in its 1st season.

TBBT, TAR, Supergirl and Limitless are the only shows I watch on CBS. with TBBT and TAR renewed that's already 50 percent, so not so bad. Would like for Supergirl and Limitless to be renewed too, but frankly if they ain't, won't cry a river over that

I'm glad they renew madam secretary I enjoy watching it certainly better than some of the other shows that are on, I do hope that in season 3 we will see more of henry & Russell Jackson background especially henry's military background( meet up with some of his old flying unit) & what did Jackson do before he became chief of staff for dalton

As long as they renew Limitless & Supergirl I'll be happy.. Limitless really grew on me. I don't generally like procedurals these days (no longer watching Castle or Bones) but even though Limitless is procedural, it has more than enough there to keep the suspense going in a larger arc, and a funny protagonist whose imagination keeps things interesting.

CBS has only five good shows Limitless, Supergirl, Mom, NCIS Los Angeles and The Big Bang Theory. The Big Bang Theory, Mom, NCIS LA has been renewed. but not Limitless and Supergirl that sucks. they should cancel Blue Bloods, Elementary, Hawaii Five-0, Madam Secretary, NCIS: New Orleans, Scorpion, 2 Broke Girls, Survivor, The Amazing Race, Criminal Minds, CSI: Cyber, The Odd Couple, Undercover Boss, Life in Pieces, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Rush Hour and Code Black.

They'd be crazy to take of Limitless, it's original and fun. The CSI franchise was dead a year ago and CSI:Cyber was always a terrible show. Of course when you have quite possibly the worst actress in the biz on it, it doesn't help.

If they do not keep limitless who ever is deciding on what show stays should be instantly fired.

CSI: Cyber needs to go. People might think they're learning something about cyber crime but really they're not. As somebody who works in the IT industry (and network security at that), the show offends me.

Even setting that aside, the show itself and the acting is too overdone. Best CSI ever is still NY. The original might have run longer, but I wasn't even interested in the last couple of seasons.

It's fun reading the comments of some of the pseudo-intellectuals here who comment about the views of others. As for me, I think I have had about enough of CBS. I've already weaned myself off of most of the offerings they choose to continue showing. With all the offerings now available to viewers I think replacing the rest won't be much of a challenge. There are better and more meaningful things in life to do in life than to watch these insipid "reality" shows. So, I'm throwing the baby and the bath out together. Here's to life without CBS.

I wish they would renew Limitless it has legs and could run, it is a fun show. There are other shows which have been going for years that I used to watch but they got old and the scripts, although good, the stories just became repetitive, there are only so many scenarios to play out. There are shows running now that are so ludicrous it makes me wonder who watches such drivel but with the rush for "reality" (unreal) shows driving producers to make even more drivel I don't see an end to it soon as it seems that thought provoking shows pay the price as intellectual shows are being watched by smaller and smaller audiences.

Why is it that the main shows that actually give our young people some insight into the dangers of this world like CSI Cyber and Criminal Minds are the very shows that are in jeopardy of being canceled.
As a mother of two teenagers who think they cannot get hacked or psychopaths "can't really be in our home town" , these two shows give young people a glimpse into just how easy it is to be abducted or become a victim of cyber crime.
I do hope these shows stay on and CBS understands how many young people they can reach and teach with these shows

CSI: Cyber isn't realistic at all. Give them a show that depicts a more realistic view of cyber crime - let them watch Mr Robot. It too has its "yeah right" moments but in general it's more true to what really happens in the world.

I'm sorry but if you think either of those shows are indicative of reality the only imminent danger to your children is you. Criminal Minds is at least entertaining but CSI: Cyber is one of the most ridiculous, dumbed down piece of crap shows I've seen in ages and is about as realistic as an episode of Power Rangers.

I love Limitless. I hope they don't cancel it. Hopefully they would never consider canceling Criminal Minds either. It is an awesome show!! I found CSI Cyber to be very entertaining and informative. Cyber crimes are the current threat that the viewers need to worry about which makes it all the more interesting.

The writers are finally figuring out (well, sort of) what Supergirl should be - especially with more of three-dimensional Cat. The show needs the second season to flesh that out and get into its stride.

I am certain SuperGirl will get renewed. Let's face it, we don't seem to have many super hero shows on at the moment.
In my opinion, Limitless is by far the best of the bunch, not that it is great, but it is at least refreshingly different and the characters are fun and interesting.

I can't believe from all the shows out there they can cancel they'd consider cancelling Limitless - it's a great show filled with seriousness and wholesome adult humor - I hope they don't cancel it. I sure hoped Brian and Rebecca would've ended up together.

Life in Pieces is struggling with 2 Broke Girls as dumbest shows on TV (Mom is in race to bottom also) IMHO. Limitless is OK if nothing better to watch. Admire & appreciate Gary Sinise, Criminal Minds:BB not so much. NCIS all time favorite but needs vast improvement in writing, character development and, most important, a new female field agent that is believable pronto. NCIS:LA his OK but NCIS:NO is better. Bravo for Blue Bloods, H5O, Elementary, & Scorpion. Unfortunately too many good dramas are turning into soap operas & sliding into the PC mud.

Limitless is my favorite new show this season and surpasses a tons of older shows too. They balanced the comedy and intrigue perfectly and the way they deliver it is perfect. I love all the "weird" scenes that keeps popping up, and they never use the same technique twice. Very creative!

I don't mind the comedy because that is mostly why I'm watching. It's far from taking itself seriously. It reminds me of Chuck a bit. Is it my favorite show? Far from it. But definitely the best new this season for me, and it is refreshing, light and fun.

I agree - some comedy on it can be cheesy but too few to give the show a negative rating - definitely Limitless is the best new show out right now

Really happy about Elementary! I don't watch any of the others that were renewed except for Big Bang (which I'm waiting to binge after the season is done).

I am sincerely praying to the TV Executive Gods that they renew Limitless or I may actually cry. It is one of, if not my most favorite show I currently watch and I literally feel my eyes pop and my pupils dilate with joy every week I see a new episode listed.
