CBS Announces Multiple Show Renewals: The Good Wife, Undercover Boss, Blue Bloods & More!

CBSCBS has decided to be first up to the plate for renewals of its shows (not including The CW, who only renewed America’s Next Top Model). The network has announced that many of its shows will be returning in the fall, including:

Blue Bloods: The show, starring Tom Selleck, will return for its third season in the fall. Even on Friday nights, the series averages 10.4 million viewers.

The Good Wife: The series’ ratings may have dropped since its move to Sunday nights (now averaging about 10 million viewers), but the Julianna Margulies led drama has been renewed for a fourth seson.

Criminal Minds: This long-running series averaged 11.6 million viewers this past season and will return for its eighth season in the fall.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Ted Danson took over one of the lead roles this season, but the show is still averaging over 10 million viewers and will return for a thirteenth season.

NCIS: It shouldn’t be a surprise that this Mark Harmon series will return for its tenth season. It continues to be the highest rated scripted show on primetime, averaging 17.7 million viewers this past season.

NCIS: LA: The spinoff starring LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell doesn’t perform as well as the original, but it’s average this season of 14.8 million viewers is nothing to scoff at. The show has been renewed for a fourth season on CBS.

The Mentalist: The Simon Baker series averaged 12 million viewers this past season and has been given a fifth season renewal.

Person of Interest: The freshman drama starring Jim Caviezel and Michael Emerson has been given a second season. The series averages about 12 million viewers.

2 Broke Girls: The freshman comedy averages nearly 11 million viewers on Monday nights and will return for a second season.

Hawaii Five-O: The Monday night drama will be returning for a third season in the fall and currently averages 9.8 million viewers.

Mike and Molly: The Melissa McCarthy led comedy will return for a fourth season and currently averages nearly 11 million viewers.

Reality Show: CBS has also renewed Undercover Boss and The Amazing Race.

News Programs: Renewals were also given to veteran news programs 60 Minutes and 48 Hours Mystery.

Unknowns: The Patrick Wilson drama, A Gifted Man, and the Poppy Montgomery series, Unforgettable, have not yet received renewals. Their futures are currently uncertain. Apparently talks are also taking place on the fate of Two and a Half Men.

Already Renewed: How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory were already given multi-season renewals, so they will return next season. The same applies to Survivor.
