via Press Release:

CBS RENEWS 18 PRIMETIME SHOWS FOR THE 2013-2014 SEASON

 

Returning Series Showcase the Ratings Success and Programming Depth of Television's

#1 Network in Viewers, Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54

 

            CBS announced today it has renewed 18 returning series from television's top-rated lineup for the 2013-2014 broadcast season.

 

The mass renewals showcase the strength and stability of television's leading network among viewers, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54.  This season, CBS is home to the #1 program/drama (NCIS), the #1 comedy (The Big Bang Theory),  the #1 new series (Elementary) and the #1 newsmagazine (60 Minutes).

 

            The renewals, comprising 16 hours of its primetime schedule, include four comedies, nine dramas, three reality series and two newsmagazines.  The returning shows encompass every night of the week and every hour, many of which rank #1 in their time period and some which rank #1 for the entire night.

 

The renewed comedies include the previously announced The Big Bang Theory, the final season of How I Met Your Mother as well as 2 Broke Girls and MIKE & MOLLY.

 

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.

 

The Network's three Emmy Award-winning reality series — THE Amazing Race, SURVIVOR and Undercover Boss — also return with new editions.

    I’ve been preparing all season long to say good-bye to TGW. This is great news! Thank you syndication!

    @6th Because Elementary has (I assume, haven’t looked at the numbers) higher overall viewers.

  • ChipL

    Hallelujah — my favorite drama on network television, “The Good Wife,” earns a renewal!

    I’m glad “The Mentalist” is coming back, too. Unlike many, I am not bothered by the drawn-out Red John storyline.

    Obviously it’s good-bye to “CSI: NY,” “Vegas” and “Golden Boy.” But I wouldn’t be surprised to see “Rules of Engagement” back on the schedule, somehow, somewhere. It’s like “According to Jim.”

  • ZmaX

    Congrats to all the fans of these shows!

    Okay, next I think they should announce Season 6 of The Mentalist as the last. They can’t draw out this Red John storyline any longer. Let them properly wrap it up next season.

  • BaziCat

    Good Wife!!!

  • Michelle

    Another – YAY – for The Good Wife…best show on TV!

    @ John:
    Mistake on article! 18 shows! lol its 8! No one noticed that?

    There are 18 TOTAL renewed. This includes the 8 scripted shows in the headline, the 3 Unscripted shows at the bottom of the press release, Two newsmagazines, and shows like The Big Bang Theory and How I met Your Mother (which had renewals announced earlier this season).

  • Colonelnp

    @John there are way more than 8 shows mentioned in that PR. I guess they are counting all the shows they’ve renewed. I think I counted 16 so either I miscounted or there are two that they didn’t mention in the release.

  • Paulo PT

    I believe TAAHM and Criminal Minds will return next season. The rest will be canceled!

    The unaccounted-for shows are “60 Minutes” and “48 Hours.” That takes you to 18.

  • Nazel

  • DonJ1973

    Criminal Minds wasn’t renewed because some of the actors contracts expire at the end of this season.

  • Janus

    I absolutely KNEW they were going to renew the Mentalist. Great! They were defintely going to give it at least one more year to fully wrap up Red John. The ratings were good enough ,especially with it’s crazy schedule on Sundays, for a renewal.

  • John A

    So is 48 Hours renewed too? They say 2 News magazine shows renewed so that means 60 minutes and 48 Hours?

  • TV Addict

    Survivor and The Amazing Race are the only shows on CBS that I care about. But good for everything else.

  • zth

    @ProViewerShipNumbers:

    Your schedule is ridiculous: Amazing Race, Survivor, and Hawaii Five-0 on Saturday? You must be kidding.

  • Alecs

    Person of Interest and The Mentalist! Yeeeeey!! How about Criminal Minds and CSI: NY? It would be just perfect if these two show will return this fall!

  • Ryan

    Yay for The Good Wife. Also really happy for The Mentalist fans.
