    Even though I don’t watch the show, this was a pretty obvious renewal. Everything on CBS not already renewed is guaranteed cancellation.

  • RJ

    All the cast has resigned, for those who are worried.

    So essentially BEST NEWS OF THE DAY.

  • total package

    I could easily be done with this show. hasn’t been the same since Inigo left

  • hello

    Glad the show comes back and that everyone is returning, would have been awful to lose some of the originals

  • ROLY


  • Greg

    More obviousness.

    Come on, NBC, don’t leave us hanging.

  • Blair


  • Mon

    All the cast has resigned, for those who are worried.
