According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS has renewed 18 shows for the upcoming 2014-2015 season. This doesn't include The Big Bang Theory or Survivor, which have both already received renewals (The Big Bang Theory for THREE YEARS). So, that's 20 shows coming back next TV season. Here's a full list:
2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, Two and a Half Men, The Millers, Mom, NCIS, NCIS: LA, Person of Interest, CSI, Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds, Elementary, The Good Wife, The Amazing Race, Undercover Boss, 60 Minutes, and 48 Hours.
In other words...Chuck Lorre still has an outrageous number of television shows currently in production.
Anyway, it's really a no brainer that 60 Minutes and 48 Hours were brought back—they're institutions. Also, as NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles are the highest rated dramas on the network, so it'd be strange to see those go too. With CBS' exclusive rights to broadcasting NFL games for Thursday Night Football, that leaves a small window for the 19 pilots CBS to get added in the rotation.
Are you happy with the renewals? Sound off in the comments.
