Dominant CBS Renews Almost Entire Slate of Programming, Including ELEMENTARY, THE GOOD WIFE, and 2 BROKE GIRLS

by     Posted 1 year, 188 days ago

Whereas NBC is desperately scrambling for viewers (after falling behind Univision in some recent rankings), CBS, the most dominant of the Big Four networks continues to show its programming stability by renewing almost all of its series, including:

  • Freshman Sherlock procedural drama Elementary, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu
  • The excellent series The Good Wife, which has been on the bubble for years (however, with a new syndication deal CBS surely sees more dollar signs and viewers by keeping it on the air)
  • Comedies Mike & Molly and 2 Broke Girls
  • The many procedurals: NCIS: LAPerson of InterestThe MentalistHawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods.

Two series that haven’t made the cut yet though are Criminal Minds (because of cast negotiations) and the Dennis Quaid vehicle Vegas, which hasn’t ever seemed to find its audience.  For more on these shows (and the ones these nine series join in the ranks of already renewed), hit the jump.
