  • Peter

    Elementary looks death.

  • Valentin

    Great for THE CRAZY ONES

  • Matt M.

    Lmao, too bad Scandal still beat Elementary and Parenthood combined in the 18-49 demo. Pathetic for a CBS drama. Especially on CBS Thursday… against an ABC drama.

  • Matt M.

    What across-the-board gains for 2.5 Men? rising 1 tenth from its series low?

    Might as well call it 2.1 Men…

  • Matt M.

    I hope you all realize that The Crazy Ones is dead. Horrible ratings for a CBS Thursday comedy. Low 2’s, 8 million viewers. While ABC and NBC would cheer for those ratings, that is simply just not good enough for a show that leads out of a show that has the #1 Broadcast TV Show as its lead-in. The Crazy Ones audience and demo ratings have horrifically eroded since its premiere.

    While those are still good single numbers for The Millers, it still loses almost 50% of TBBT’s demo rating.

    May 2014 Predictions Regarding CBS Thursday Shows:

    The Big Bang Theory renewed for 2 more season, of course.

    The Millers renewed for Season 2, moved to Mondays at 8:00.

    Friends With Better Lives renewed for Season 2, moved to Thursdays at 8:30, after TBBT. (Unless CBS already decides to premiere it there in midseason)

    The Crazy Ones cancelled.

    Elementary cancelled.

    Two And A Half Men renewed for 12th and Final Season.

  • Valentin

    If The Crazy Ones is dead, so are Mom & The Millers.

  • Andy

    I don’t know how old all you posters are but these stupid comments about what shows should be cancelled are beyond ridiculous. The Millers at 11million viewers in this day and age is incredible. As for MOM I think it will be renewed because it is one of the best comedies. And yes I am 57 years old. Always a CBS watcher!

  • Alvar

    The Millers and The Crazy Ones are not doing great considering the huge lead in. Two and a Half Men would do much better numbers at 8.30 out of The Big Bang Theory than what The Millers is currently doing and would provide a stronger lead in for the 9pm hour.

    8.00 The Big Bang Theory
    8.30 Two and a Half Men
    9.00 The Millers
    9.30 The Crazy Ones

  • Wanda

    The Crazy Ones I don’t believe is dead. The show needs time to grow. The shows competition is Grey’d that’s been on the air for ten years. CBS renewing the show would be a smart move.

  • Kim

    I sure hope Elementary is not being canceled. I am a big fan of Sherlock Holmes. I do enjoy the show. I thought they would be taking the show to England. I saw the commercial that said his father wanted to go back home. Also tbbt is getting more and more funnier. That darn Sheldon. I also enjoy The Carrie Diaries.

  • Blake Williams

    how can they afford to renew two and a half men with those dismal ratings. the actors are overpaid and the show is underperforming……..
