Upfronts: CBS picks up “The Unit,” “Rules of Engagement,” “How I Met Your Mother”

Now it’s really just down to the fate of “Moonlight,” because CBS has made it official on pickups for drama “The Unit” and comedies “How I Met Your Mother” and “Rules of Engagement.”

“Mother” renewal was never really in doubt, but “Unit” seemed very much on the bubble until the last 72 hours or so and “Rules” was not exactly a slam dunk. Second-year drama “Shark” was the other lingering hold out, but as of last week it was pretty clear that a renewal was not in the cards for James Woods and Co.
