CBS has announced a string of renewals ahead of its annual Upfronts.

They include The Good Wife, NCIS, Criminal Minds, Odd Couple, Survivor, Blue Bloods, Hawaii Five-0, NCIS: LA, Elementary, Person of Interest, CSI: Cyber and The Amazing Race.

But omitted from the news was the future for the long-running CSI -expected to conclude with telemovie. That would leave CSI: Cyber as the sole surviving edition (the series is coming to TEN soon).

Person of Interest is rumoured to have 13 episodes, a number which signalled the end for The Mentalist.

CBS has previously announced renewals for Madam Secretary, NCIS: New Orleans, Scorpion, 2 Broke Girls, The Big Bang Theory, Mike and Molly and Mom and now axed Battle Creek, Stalker and The McCarthys.

  1. Yes! Person Of Interest, The Good Wife and Elementary are shows I really like. While I wouldn’t like POI to end soon but if they can wrap things up perfectly, I will be fine with that.
    Also I’m really enjoying CSI Cyber.

  2. I started to lose interest in POI when Carter was killed off and I finally gave up when the Samaritan plotline started. I stayed with NCIS after Caitlin was killed off and gave up when Ziva left. The Oz ratings for NCIS have been sliding in the past few years, possibly following TEN into the quicksand but in the US it’s been going great guns hitting a peak of 22million viewers in 2012 despite all the copycat spin-off’s. I keep series 1-8 on my PVR for rainy days.

  3. As a watcher of PoI and Elementary this is good news for me.

    A 13 ep final season of PoI sounds good as well – it’s getting close to treading water and would like to see it go out in style.

  4. Yes a 13 episode run for POI looks a midseason replacement slot for something that gets axed, to give it 100+ eps for syndication.

    Happy the Good Wife has survived once more. It hasn’t been rating well, but neither has Madam Secretary which got an early renewal. Sunday is still a problem for CBS.

  5. Somebody at CBS really loves the good wife. It’s a brilliant show, but has had some dire demo ratings in the US this season, and that’s usually how shows live and die over there.

      • The Good Wife often fails to get nominated for the major awards, because it has run in the age of cable dramas. 2 Emmys for Marguiles and couple of supporting and guest actress awards.The media love it for giving good roles to women and its intelligent progressive politics.

        Executives could care less about awards. They avoid sticking their necks out and axe low rating shows and keep average+ ratings ones. For last 2 decades that has been viewers <50 because that's what advertisers pay for.

        Guaranteed syndication and OS sales in uncertain times along with reasonable cost and lots of female viewers have helped. CBS have favoured several Sunday night shows without great <50 numbers is they have lots of viewers, because they have struggled to develop anything better for those slots, especially 10pm.
