CBS Cheat Sheet: Is Criminal Minds Really in Danger?!

at . Comments

With the 2018-19 TV season well underway, it's time to take a look at how the new and returning series are performing and their odds at being renewed for the 2019-20 season. 

Most shows on CBS are on the downside year-to-year, and that could give some of the more marginal shows a fighting chance at garnering a reprieve.

Even Criminal Minds which was expected to conclude with a truncated season might snag another short order, but there's also the possibility that the network changes focus and lets it go. 

Have a look at how the CBS shows stack up and hit the comments with your thoughts. 

 

1. The Big Bang Theory - Ending

The Big Bang Theory - Ending
The Big Bang Theory will wrap up in May 2019 at the close of its twelfth season.

Season to date, it is averaging 12.5 million total viewers and a 2.3 rating in the demo. It's down in the ratings, but could have continued for several more years if the powers that be wanted to keep it around.

It's still a strong performer on the DVR front, with the demo tally swelling by over 70 percent with a week's worth of DVR factored in.

2. Young Sheldon - Certain Renewal

Young Sheldon - Certain Renewal
Young Sheldon is down over 20 percent in the demo this season, but 10.7 million viewers and a 1.7 rating is a fantastic result for any show. With The Big Bang Theory ending, it will likely become the network's highest-rated series. It will be around for a long time.

3. NCIS - Certain Renewal

NCIS - Certain Renewal
NCIS is showing stability this season. Currently averaging 12.2 million total viewers and a 1.4 rating, it is right on par with last season's average.

It surges more than 50 percent in the demo with seven days of DVR factored in. Even if some of the cast members want out, CBS will not want to part with the show quite yet.

4. Mom - Certain Renewal

Mom - Certain Renewal
Mom has always been a reliable performer for CBS. With 8 million total viewers and a 1.3 rating in the demo, it's still very safe.

5. The Neighborhood - Likely Renewal

The Neighborhood - Likely Renewal
The Neighborhood has been a consistent performer since it debuted earlier this month. Averaging 7 million total viewers and a 1.2 rating, CBS has already rewarded it with a full season order.

Barring a midseason collapse, it should be back for the 2019-2020 season.

6. FBI - Likely Renewal

FBI - Likely Renewal
This freshman drama is averaging 9.5 million viewers and a 1.1 rating. The show is adding almost 60 percent to the demo rating within seven days, so that's a major positive. If it can stop the week-to-week bleeding, it should be safe.
