CBS Announces 18 Show Renewals: Which Made the List?

at .  Updated at . Comments

CBS is not messing around. 

A day after announcing a three-season renewal for The Big Bang Theory, the network picked up EIGHTEEN shows today for new seasons.

Among them? News programs 60 Minutes and 48 Hours, along with reality hits Undercover Boss and The Amazing Race.

But which nine dramas and five comedies made the cut? Find out now:

Most noticeable absent from this list? The Mentalist and The Crazy Ones.

We'll need to wait until May to learn their fates.

“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.”

NOOO! What about The Mentalist? It's the highlight of my Sunday nights!


I like Intelligence. I haven't missed an episode, but I'm missing the human element. There's not enough interaction between the characters. Not enough emotional investment. But, next weeks episode looks promising. We'll see.


With Crisis Debut tonight on NBC that might be what finally sinks the Mentalist ship


Another season for my fave!!!! The Good Wife has been fantastc this year!!


YEAH ! ANOTHER SEASON FOR NCIS ! Like Michael Weatherly said in the video celebrating the 250th, let's go for 250 more !


FutonCritic has added Mentalist to those being renewed yesterday, so I guess it was an oversight or the Mentalist crew hit the ceiling and asked the WTF was going on.

@ clifbean

I don't think so none of the big major website have said anything


What about Mentalist CBS?!?


I am also hoping for Intelligence and The Crazy Ones to get renewed for at least one more season. But since their ratings aren't really high and CBS probably needs those time slots for new shows, I doubt that they will get renewed. The Mentalist could stay on, but they should really change the new concept a bit...the show is just too different from what it used to be.


Where is Intelligence? I love this show.


I watch NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, Person of Interest, Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds, and Elementary. I love all of these shows, but of these I am most thrilled at the renewals of Person of Interest and Blue Bloods.
