    Many shows are going to be canceled next season like CSI, The Mentalist and Two And A Half Men without forgetting the last season of How I Met Your Mother !! It’s gonna be very difficult for CBS to find replacements mainly find replacements especially as some like “CSI or TAAHM” were cult series :/
    PS: with future cancellations, i hope CBS will keep Hawaii 5-O and The Good Wife !!

  • Californiadgd

    CSI will not be canceled. ;]]

  • Michael1


    Shows with high ratings are generally not “cancelled” unless they have escalating costs. I believe “Frasier” would be an example of that. CSI and TAAHM have both replaced their leads within the last 3 years, so it is unlikely that they are close to being priced out of the market. Also, I believe that their high viewership totals disqualify them from “cult” status. TGW is now in syndication, and H50 should be by the end of next season, so that should help their causes as well.

  • Josh


    Oh very sorry mate it just seemed like you were hating!

  • Justin121

    CBS is the most consistent network.

    No “preview this” or “move that for four weeks then return to its timeslot” nonsense.

    Premiere everything, you know, in “premiere” week and keep your shows where they always are.

    Consistency in scheduling: good.

    Consistently spout out cop dramas and retro-90’s sitcoms: no good.

    No “preview this” or “move that for four weeks then return to its timeslot” nonsense.

    Wasn’t that precisely the plan for Golden Boy this year?

  • Drago

    “How to live” is better than most of the other comedies out there. Why did they have to cancel it?

  • HV

    I agree. It was a hilarious show, my favorite new series of the season, and it performed well. It makes me very upset that it got canceled while The Neighbors, a horribly stupid show that didn’t perform as well got renewed. I am very glad that it is on Friday now though and I am sure it will die not being between The Middle and Modern Family, and especially being after Last Man Standing, a complete opposite, on a Friday.

  • Drago


    All the actors on “How to live” are exceptional. I also liked most of the characters on “Maliby Country” (Reba, her mother and the producer’s assistant). Stopped watching the Neighbors after 2-3 episodes.

  • Cyrax86

    I’m still surprised there’s no update about the scheduling of Unforgettable, so best to assume it gets moved to Saturdays, really?!

  • Eric McInnis

    Does anyone know when the premiere dates for the other networks will be published?

  • HV

    I too watched a few episodes of The Neighbors but gave up on it. I never did watch Malibu Country, but I believe it did earn good enough ratings to deserve a second season.

  • Justin121


    No, the plan was to premeire Golden Boy on Friday – its trial on Tuesday was only a result of Vegas’ failure.

    CBS generally doesn’t mess with timeslots unless they were occupied by Dead Shows Walking.

    You know how Bill keeps refuting commentors’ fantasy schedule propositions of “an hour of repeats” by the fact that no network (namely, the CW) devots an hour of failure/repeats going into the seaon?

    Well, the other Big 4 networks -especially FOX and NBC, both in their pre-season Fall and midseasons schedules and their in-season Winter/Spring schedules – do something akin to that; they assign failure as the default choice in their scheduling moves — something even the CW wouldn’t do.

    @ TahaTheKid

    CSI is safe. Ted Danson signed for Seasons 14 and 15, it is high rated and probably cheaper than Two and a Half Men.
    The only Shows in danger are: Two and a Half Men, Blue Bloods, The Good Wife and The Mentalist.

  • Wayne R

    I have not seen when Mike and Molly are coming back. They were renewed but I do not see them on the schedule

  • HV

    @Wayne R
    Mike and Molly is a midseason replacement and it will replace a canceled comedy. I would say it’s likely to premire Thursday at 8:30 around November 7.
