New Orleans, Scorpion, Madam Secretary, Stalker


Get an eyeful of this: CBS just gave full season pickups to four new dramas.

The network granted full season orders to freshman series NCIS: New Orleans, Scorpion, Madam Secretary and Stalker.

And if you're keeping track, that means CBS picked up every single new drama that premiered this season! Yeah, it's a great year for the Eye.

The four new dramas, combined with NFL Thursday Night Football, have helped CBS win the first four weeks of the season for the sixth consecutive year.

"These four shows have had an immediate impact on our schedule by improving nights, winning time periods and adding more hours of success across our primetime line up," CBS boss Nina Tassler said.

CBS joins the CW and ABC in their full season pickups, as new shows Jane the Virgin, The Flash, blackish and How to Get Away With Murder all received full season orders, and ABC granted additional episode orders to returning series Modern Family, The Middle, The Goldbergs, Grey's Anatomy, Castle, Once Upon a Time and Resurrection.

As for the first cancelation of the season? That dubious honor goes to ABC's low-rated rom-com Manhattan Love Story, which the network axed late Friday night. But technically, Manhattan Love Story isn't the first series to be canceled this fall, as NBC grounded Mission Control, starring Krysten Ritter as an astronaut in the '60s, before it even aired, and Fox decided not to go forward with Hieroglyph, its ambitious drama set in ancient Egypt that was set to debut in 2015.

Are you excited to see more of CBS' new roster of dramas?
