Among the returning dramas are the previously announced NCIS, television's #1 program and top drama for the fourth consecutive year, and the time period-winning CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION.


Other dramas renewed include NCIS: LOS ANGELES, the #2 drama for the third straight year; PERSON OF INTEREST, the fastest-growing show on network television; ELEMENTARY, the season’s most-watched new program; as well as HAWAII FIVE-0, THE MENTALIST, BLUE BLOODS and THE GOOD WIFE.

    CBS, please, renew Vegas!!!!!!!!!! My age group is over 60 and we like it alot!!! Please, don’t forget us. We are avid NCIS, NCISLA, The Big Band Theory, and Elementary. Why not Vegas, too!



    You state, and I quote, ‘Hawaii Five O is a huge disappointment, as per CBS’

    CBS HAS NEVER called 5-0 a disappointment at all.
    You may be entitled to your opinions, but you should not LIE to defend them

    MILLIONS of fans LOVE 5-0 and our opinions seem to matter more than yours because 5-0 has been renewed — YES !!!!!

    CBS has never put out a press release stating their disappointment with Hawaii Five O. Just because they have not done that does not mean they have not voiced their concerns. It all stems from the quality, or lack of quality, of the revived series.

    When did I lie about Hawaii Five O or any CBS series? You are accusing me of lying with no facts!

  • HAPPY!



    Respect others and use the comments section appropriately!

    LOL…Oh, seems as if I have touched a nerve for simply stating what I know and my opinions. You are the one who is displaying anger with “GET OVER YOURSELF!!!!!”

    @ ProViewerShipNumbers

    Are you a complete fool?

    You LIE by stating — and I QUOTE YOU
    ‘Hawaii Five O is a huge disappointment, as per CBS’ (YOUR WORDS FOOL)

    Unless CBS has TOLD YOU THIS – you are a liar !

    Because you do not like the show does not give you a right to LIE

    To lie is to deliver a false statement to another person which the speaking person knows is not the whole truth, intentionally.

    What is with the name calling?



    per your definition, you lied……..

    YOUR WORDS ‘Hawaii Five O is a huge disappointment, AS PER CBS’

    When you spew such hatred for a show millions of people love, you should expect to be called out on it – bottom line, you have your opinion and I have mine.

    Saying words such as ‘PER CBS’ really rubbed me the wrong way. Feel free to voice your OWN opinion but stating that CBS has these views crosses the line, in MY opinion

    Well, what can say but The Mentalist rocks :D and TVbythenumbers got their prediction dead wrong which is no suprise :D

  • Holly

    @Jim Jac,

    TVbythenumbers got their prediction dead wrong

    TVBTN never predicted that The Mentalist would be canceled. The lowest they had it was “On the Bubble.”

  • elena

    Congatulations to Elementary. Great news, Great show, and the wonderfull Mr. Miller.:)

  • carol cronin

    Thank you for renewing The Mentalist and The Good Wife….Two very good shows. I just wish the writers of the Mentalsit could get back to the wh imsicle ability it first had with Simon Bakers character, th ough he had his dark side with the Red John part of the story…..he still had us smile at his unusual ability to solve a crime. Simon played the role perfectly. They all did. Now the writers are failing in their scripts.Hope the new season shapes up
