CBS has renewed 18 shows for its 2014-2015 season. Yes, 18!
"The best way to launch new shows in the fall and throughout the season is to surround them with a strong and stable lineup of successful series," Nina Tassler, chairman of CBS Entertainment, said in a statement. "The shows we're picking up today cut across every night of the week and feature genre leaders, time-period winners and the most-watched shows on broadcast television."
But fan-favorites The Crazy Ones and The Mentalist are missing from the early announcement. However, that doesn't mean they're canceled.
Combined with the previously announced renewals of Survivor and The Big Bang Theory, 20 shows will return to CBS for 2014-2015.
Returning CBS dramas include The Good Wife, Elementary, Blue Bloods, NCIS, CSI, NCIS: LA, Criminal Minds, Person of Interest and Hawaii Five-0. Returning comedies are: Mom, Two and a Half Men, Mike & Molly, The Millers and 2 Broke Girls.
CBS also handed out renewals to Undercover Boss, The Amazing Race, 60 Minutes and 48 Hours.
Also missing from the announcement: Hostages, Intelligence and new shows (which have yet to premiere) Bad Teacher, Reckless and Friends with Better Lives.
