    @ Catsrule

    Hawaii Five-0 hit a 2.0 because people really wanted to watch the Finale. The Show already scored a 2.0 or higher this season with Castle on the air.

  • The End

    @CBS will probably cancel one of The Mentalist or The Good Wife (maybe both) and replace them by underperforming Shows.

    I agree, it makes sense.

    @Maybe Hawaii will get a shortened sixth season

    I can’t see it going beyond Season 5 personally.

    @ which will be hard for the writers because it took twelve seasons for the Original Show.

    Lol, in that case they would be pretty dreadful writers. They should be able to wrap up pretty much everything in a single season. Same applies to any show on the air even.

    @ Undercover Boss in the Fall Friday will maybe rate a bit higher than this season

    Perhaps, we’l just have to wait and see.

  • Alan

    Wondering if FOX will air all the Goodwin Games episodes, since they don’t have anything else to air

    @The End

    Yeah I actually thought about “at most”. I just used “at least” because I think H50 and TGW are much safer than TM and BB so that is at least one more season after next season.

  • CBSviewer

    @ The End

    As I said I can see Hawaii Five-0 having a sixth Season of 16-18 episodes because it has a VERY GOOD syndication deal ($2.5 million per episode) and because CBS will need to replace Blue Bloods at 10. Friday is too weak and CBS will want to keep something there to help a new Show (or a veteran) at 10. CBS will cancel Blue Bloods after Season 5 and keep Hawaii Five-0 for a final season.

  • The End


    Yep. Though I would prefer to hear of advanced notice to either of these shows prior to renewal that they’re getting a final season and not canceling them out of the blue like what happens so often in this industry these days.

    I think at the very most one of the 4 shows I listed as examples will be eaten by the cancelation bear, I think maybe The Mentalist or The Good Wife. The possibility is there for Hawaii Five-O but doubtful.

  • The End


    Worth noting that the upcoming season of Hawaii Five-O is Season 4, which was why I was optimistic with my 5 seasons prediction, with the fifth being the last. And I agree with your Blue Bloods prediction.


    Opps, forgot to put next season after the cancelation bear part in my response to you. Apologies.

  • jim dandy

    Motive may not need to succeed on ABC to get more seasons. Look at The Listener or Saving Hope as examples where the shows were pulled from US networks but continue to be produced for Canadian and international viewing.

  • Mon

    @The End

    I think The Good Wife will get that final season billing. CBS loves it so much, a show that should have been cancelled after two seasons has been dragged all the way to season 5 (or maybe more).

  • The End


    I agree, the show hasn’t performed amazingly yet gets renewed time and time again. I honestly have Elementary down as CBSs next Good Wife, mostly because the show has always been secured by a good lead in, and has generally been treated favorably by the network.

    That said, a lot of these cancelation decisions will be easier for CBS if it has some hits on their hands with these new shows due to start soon. I can’t see it staying on Sunday after The Amazing Race forever, I really can’t. It’l have to end at some point.

    In all honesty, I think once The Good Wife is ended, Elementary will take its timeslot for the next 2-3 seasons before being canceled.(At roughly its 5th season).

    If I were a gambler I would bet on Castle fans still hating on H50 even when they move to Fridays and Revolution when they move . I still say by the end of next season Castle fans will be wishing they were up against Hawaii Five-0 and Revolution

  • josh2770

    ok i think five-O only has about 2 seasons left before they cancel it and revolution is not going to survive in that wendsday spot agains survivor and ABC comedy!

  • POIFanatic

    Revolution is doing really well considering it wasn’t even the penultimate episode! But I fear how its going to do on June 3rd. Many people would have switched off their tv’s by the end of the week thinking the season is over for all the spring shows.

  • Jon

    Enjoy revolution while you can, because with the spot NBC put it in next year, it will be it’s last.

  • Giusy


    I’m with you lakersupbyten. I hope to see many seasons of H50! :)

  • POIFanatic

    @Jon: 2 seasons with a resolution is better than 1 without a proper ending. 1 season is better than a half cancelled season. So, of course the fans will enjoy it. We got one more year.

    @ The End and CBSviewer

    What I think about CBS’s Shows future:
    – How I Met Your Mother (9 Seasons)
    – 2 Broke Girls (5-6 seasons; ratings are already falling)
    – Mike & Molly (6 seasons; it is the new Rules and, for me, it will get 6 seasons because CBS probably want it to have 100 episodes)
    – Hawaii Five-0 (6 seasons; the Show is too profitable to be canceled before a long time)
    – NCIS (I don’t know; it depends on how many years Mark Harmon wants to continue. According to the ratings it could last forever)
    – NCIS: Los Angeles (7-8 seasons; CBS will keep it as long as they can)
    – Criminal Minds (10 seasons; all the cast signed for seasons nine and ten and negociations were difficult. They will not sign for season 11)
    – CSI (I don’t know; it depends on Ted Danson and if he wants to continue. The ratings are still there)
    – The Big Bang Theory (10 seasons; nothing to say)
    – Two and a Half Men (11-12 seasons; depends on Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer)
    – Person of Interest (6-7 seasons; It doesn’t belong to CBS and when the ratings will fall too low CBS will cancel it)
    – Elementary (5 seasons; ratings are not so high but CBS will keep it for syndication)
    – Blue Bloods (5 seasons; The Show will never hold on. It scored a 1.1 for its season finale)
    – The Good Wife (5 seasons; CBS saved it for syndication but next season will be its last)
    – The Mentalist (6 seasons; It doesn’t belong to CBS but it was Renewed to wrap things up thanks to WB).

    “Maybe Hawaii will get a shortened sixth season to wrap things up which will be hard for the writers because it took twelve seasons for the Original Show.”

    You mean, its plot is so overly complex, that it cannont be resolved in a sixth, final season?

    It’ll barely have time to answer half the questions the original did?


  • bluejays

    No one can say how many seasons HFO has left. Poeple are talking as if Friday is where shows go to die but it isn’t always. If HFO does okay numbers on Friday it could sit there for a good three or four more seasons. Easily.

    CBS would have NO motive to cancel it as long as it doesn’t tank in that spot. It has a really good syndication deal that is worth a lot of money to CBS. Launching new shows on a Friday is hard. If HFO can get similar numbers to BB’s it could sit on a Friday raking in syndication dollars for a long time.

    It will only be gone after next year if it bombs completely on Friday. Which is always a risk.

    As for those saying it did badly in its finale, no it didn’t. It did the same as Elementary and Elemnetary got the coveted nine pm slot for part of its finale and couldn’t crack a two.

    I’d be much much more worried about the futures of POI and Eelememntary than HFO unless Five-0 collapses on Friday. As they don’t have syndication deals, one isn’t a CBS show and if they continue to lose viewers at ten while in the week CBS will cancel them.

  • Other than THAT Mrs. Lincoln how was the play?

    The Bad Lose Games is toast. It reached TOUCH-like levels instantly. Not even FRINGE airing in the Friday Graveyard ever scored that low.

    Stick a fork in Games is toast.
