CBS has picked up 11 more series for 2016-17, all of them veterans.

The renewals are: “2 Broke Girls,” “The Amazing Race,” “Blue Bloods,” “Elementary,” “Hawaii Five-0,” “Madam Secretary,” “Mom,” “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “NCIS: New Orleans,” “Scorpion” and “Survivor.” They join the previously renewed “Big Bang Theory” and “NCIS” in the network’s lineup for next season.

The big renewal does not include any of the network’s first-year series, long-time staple “Criminal Minds” or “CSI: Cyber.”

Most notable among the missing freshman shows is “Life in Pieces,” which has been the top-rated new comedy of 2015-16. It averages a 2.0 same-day rating in adults 18-49.

“Criminal Minds” may come down to a money discussion between CBS and ABC Studios, which co-produces the series and owns its international rights. Still, it seems likely to return with a just-launched spinoff having put up decent numbers in its first two weeks.

The 11 CBS pickups join these shows that have been renewed for 2016-17 and beyond.
