    Friend Me is the male version of 2 Broke Girls… No Super Fun Night… =(

  • Petar

    Its crazy……
    shocking news from CBS:

    Martin Lawrence comedy is not going forward

    Conan super fun night comedy is OUT too!

    jerry bruckheimer drama OUT too!

    Only 1 or 2 new sitcoms from CBS.

    What the hell is going on with CBS??????

    Its CBS mistake, real mistake! At least they stop with procedurals the two main dramas elementary and ralph lamb = Vegas are serilezed!

  • Darrick

    There are only 4 new dramas. Considering that they’ve already canceled A Gifted Man, they could keep Unforgettable if they cancel NYC 22, CSI: Miami, and CSI: NY.

  • OMG

    @Petar
    I am quite sure it will be partly procedural like Person of Interest.

  • JJ

    I would have liked to see “Super Fun Night” and Martin Lawrence comedy :(

  • Jan

    They announced canceling Gifted Man; haven’t announced the other two yet.

    while clearly NYC22 is/will be canceled, and Unforgettable too…nothing official yet on Unforgettable, CSI: Miami or CSI: NY. Hopefully that gets confirmed before the NBC schedule comes out in an hour and a half or it could be a mad scramble!

  • Martin

    Robert,

    Do you think this means that they are sticking to 3 hours of comedy??

    It’s a shame, always love CBS sitcoms. Only way they could really have 4hrs now is if they had Rules renewed and on in the fall, and maybe pick up new comedy in midseason.

  • JJ

    @Darrick

    There’s no way CBS is going to cancel both CSI: NY and Miami. Unforgettable could still be renewed if they cancel NYC 22, A Gifted Man and Miami OR NY.

  • Petar

    Its interesting – all other netwosks go with more sitcoms and reality CBS chose other road….again! Or SAME road like this year! This year they was again with 4 dramas and 2 comedies!

    ps OK for partners but why not Conan show or Martin L show vome on CBS…….

    Any chance Martin L show survive now? I mean PBS or other network?

  • Bee

    might try vegas and elementary if they aren’t procedurals. idk why dennis quaid and michael chiklis would be wasting away in a bland procedural anyway. but we’ll see.

    and YAY PARTNERS! SOPHIA BUSH<3 hoping it's a good show and gets a good timeslot. still bummed that they passed over joanna garcia's pilot. and does only 2 comedy pick-ups mean no 2-hour comedy block on thursdays?

  • rob60990

    With CBS only picking up 2 comedies and rumor they want to premiere 3 new dramas, an extra hour of comedy may not happen unless they renew both Rob and Rules.

  • Mystery13

    I think that CSI: Miami and CSI: NY will be cancelled now. They had no cliffhanger, only typical close ending…What do you think of that?

  • KS

    @Robert

    Any idea when is CW schedule coming out?

  • s0303

    there’s no way they are going to nenew unforgettable or csi ny…csi miami has a chance, mostly due to how bad nyc22 did in that time slot…if nyc22 had done well, miami would be gone also..

    In unscripted new they ordered The Job for midseason. A show hosted by Lisa Ling in which 5 people compete for their dream job at a “prestiguous company”. I wonder where they’ll place that.

    Well i am not Robert but simple math and my smart brain say clearly – NOPE! Will be crazy risky. If partners or friend me bombs like how to be gentelman they will look silly! They will go like this year i guess what is working fine for tham with 2 dramas and sitcom and 2 dramas and sitcom if new one flops or for midseason.

    As for the 3 hours of comedies, assuming CBS doesn’t pick up anymore shows and cancels at least one of Rob & Rules, comedy expansion doesn’t look likely.
