#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.

    POI leaves :D

  • DonJ1973

    Shawn Ryan’s Beverly Hills Cop’s chances of getting picked up dropped alot after today.

    If it somehow gets picked up, I think it’s headed for Friday nights at possibly 8pm.

  • Markitos

    TGW! aaawwww thanks CBS! :D :D I’m so happy :D :D :D

  • Win

    Is POI on your schedule?
    @Meliwa Thanks.

  • bjssp

    Is the episode order number clear? If not perhaps look at shortened and/or final seasons, like some already have.

  • Win

    nevermind saw it on sunday…

  • MichaelChickless


    I’m glad The Mentalist made the cut (I just hope it gets a better timeslot next season).

    That’s weird about the silence (of the lambs?) about Criminal Minds.

    Come on CSI: New York!

  • KT

    No Criminal Minds?!?! This can’t be good…

  • DonJ1973

    No, episode orders don’t get finalized until midseason.

  • Spanish Gleek

    So so glad for The Good Wife. It is the best scripted show on network TV. Point. Enough said. Love my Alicia Florrick dude!

  • DonJ1973


    As already mentioned, some of the cast members of Criminal Minds are in contract negotiations mainly Thomas Gibson and Joe Mantegna.

  • One

    Come on, CBS. The Mentalist is played out. Just cancel it already…

  • DaxJackson

    Happy for Elementary, I stopped watching Vegas after a few episodes so won’t be sad to see that go, shame really it has an amazing cast… just found it boring lol

  • dazza

    Midseason: The Mentalist

  • Jay

    Elementary is the number 1 new show with total viewers, but not in the key 18 -49 demographic. That would be revolution.

  • jens2488

    CBS has so many high Profile pilots and no space on their schedule.

    Intelligence (starring Josh Holloway + Marg Helgenberger)
    Beverly Hills Cop
    The Advocates
    The Surgeon General (starring Jason Isaacs)
    Backstrom (from the Bones creators starring Rainn Wilson)

    all in all 11 Drama pilots

    and 12 Comedy pilots (including Mom from Chuck Lorre and a Pilot with Robin Williams)

    I think everyone who has a Pilot in contention at CBS will have many sleepless nights until May.

  • Bee


    1 win. 2 more to go. come on ABC, save nashville & send HE to TBS.

  • ITV


    Hawaii Five-O is renewed, just not in the headline. If you read through the article it is one of the dramas listed as renewed.

  • Cyrax86

    @dazza, H5-0 was renewed as well, but it’s missing from the title.
