CBS Renews 18 Primetime Programs

Eye still in talks for WBTV's 'Two and a Half Men'

CBS, primetime’s top-rated network, won’t have many holes to fill this fall after renewing 18 of its series for the 2013-2014 season.

In the comedy sector, CBS has given new seasons to “2 Broke Girls,” “Mike & Molly” and “How I Met Your Mother,”  along with the previously announced return of “The Big Bang Theory.”

Reality program vets “The Amazing Race” and “Survivor” were renewed, along with “Undercover Boss.” Newsmags “60 Minutes” and “48 Hours Mystery” will also return this fall.

Finally, in the drama realm, shows renewed include: “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “Person of Interest,” “Elementary,” “Hawaii Five-O,” “The Mentalist,” “Blue Bloods” and “The Good Wife.”

CBS stated that it’s still in talks with Warner Bros. TV regarding the return of “Two and a Half Men.”

Missing from the slew of renewals are “Vegas” and “Golden Boy,” which were recently rescheduled on the CBS lineup. “Vegas” is moving to Friday nights, while “Golden Boy” received a dose of confidence from the Eye as it was handed a more permanent spot on its Tuesday night sked.

“CSI: NY,” “Criminal Minds” and “Rules of Engagement” were also not included in today’s renewals.

Eye is currently TV’s top network among adults 18-49 and 25-54, with “NCIS” and “Big Bang Theory” routinely outperforming competitors on other broadcast nets.
