CBS Orders Full Seasons of Hawaii Five-0, Mike & Molly, Blue Bloods, Defenders & $#*!

CBS is doing so well this season (they just won all four weeks of premiere season for the first time since 1987) that they ordered full seasons of all five of the new shows that debuted this year: Hawaii Five-o, Mike & Molly, Blue Bloods, The Defenders & $#*! My Dad Says.

The ratings of all five shows has been very good, giving CBS a ratings boost this year. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the shows have the following ratings to date: Hawaii has averaged 14.2 million and a 4.1 adults 18-49 rating; Blue has averaged 12.7 million and a 2.2; Defenders 11.3 million and a 2.8; Molly 12.3 million and 4.1 and $#*! 11.3 million and 3.5.

Hawaii Five-o also has the distinction of being the most DVR-ed show ever.

THR spoke with the CBS entertainment president, who was thrilled about the recent pick-ups:

“It’s personally thrilling and extremely satisfying,” CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler told The Hollywood Reporter. “I like kept walking around the halls going, ‘I want 5 for 5.'”

Of course, the pick-ups could mean problems for CBS when it comes to scheduling its midseason shows:

Tassler wouldn’t rule out reducing the episode orders for some. CBS isn’t announcing how many episodes of each show was ordered, sources say $#*! may only be for six episodes instead of the customary nine, plus three scripts. Hawaii received back nine plus two scripts.

“We’re looking at all possible ideas,” Tassler said. “It’s not just about filling slots but launching a successful midseason schedule.”
