TV Week is reporting:

CBS is bringing back summer drama "Flashpoint" for another season.

The network has picked up a new batch of episodes of the Canadian-produced crime drama, which proved to be a solid addition to the CBS summer schedule this year. After showing some promise on Friday nights, the network switched "Flashpoint" to "Swingtown's" 10 p.m. Thursday slot—behind "CSI"—and saw ratings grow even more.

And TV Week also reports:

"Big Brother" will be back next summer.

Just days after wrapping a successful 10th season, CBS has confirmed that its long-running reality soap opera has been renewed for an 11th cycle. The news was announced to "Brother" staffers Thursday night at the show's wrap party in Studio City, Calif.

The renewal doesn't come as much of a surprise, given "Brother's" solid performance this summer. Airing three times per week, the show regularly delivered CBS's best ratings of the night with its Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday broadcasts. Its finale attracted nearly 8 million viewers, down from last summer's swansong but up compared with the show's 2008 spring finale.
