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.”

Well, I have to say that The Mentalist was getting stale. They don't use his keen sense of people enough like they did in the beginning.


Most of my favorites were picked up as well. I only hope that Intelligence makes the cut. I really like this new show.

@ Marci Rommal

I really like Intelligence too. It was a little shaky at first, but I have found that with each episode it just gets better and better.


The Crazy Ones need another year. That show cracks me up!

I am super happy with Person of Interest, Blue Bloods and Hawaii Five 0 getting renewed.
I would love for Crazy Ones and Intelligence to be renewed too.


I'm going to miss The Crazy Ones. I really enjoyed it this year. Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar are great together.

Regarding Intelligence, they have to make a decision fast, because the season ends on March 30.

@ PatrickC

They have as long as they want...the season ending date is not at all important on renewal or cancellation decisions.
