CBS renews ‘NCIS,’ ‘Criminal Minds,’ more; ‘The Mentalist,’ ‘The Crazy Ones’ TBD

CBS -Today, CBS decided that they are not exactly the patient type when it comes to revealing whether or not many of their top shows will be back for another season on the air. Over a dozen shows were officially picked up for the 2014-15 season today, and they include a few that were firmly on the bubble.

With that, there were also some shows that are going to have to sweat it out for a while, and could be in very big trouble come the upfront presentation in May. For “Intelligence” and “The Crazy Ones,” you can pretty much pencil in their fate as done for. Their ratings have been weak compared to the rest of the competition. However, “The Mentalist” is still waiting for a decision, and despite actually drawing better ratings recently than “The Good Wife,” it doesn’t have that same sort of critical following.

The following shows were the ones that were picked up today: “Mom,” “2 Broke Girls,” “The Millers,” “Two and a Half Men,” “Hawaii Five-0,” “Undercover Boss,” “Blue Bloods,” “Criminal Minds,” “Elementary,” “NCIS,” “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “Person of Interest,” “The Good Wife,” “The Amazing Race,” and “CSI.” The biggest surprise in here to us? Probably “Two and a Half Men,” mostly because the show is expensive to make thanks to the salaries of Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer. We wouldn’t have been shocked to see “The Amazing Race” go at this point, but are thrilled to see it back on the air for another go-around.

As for some of the other big shows on the schedule, “The Big Bang Theory” was renewed earlier in the week until the end of the tenth season, and there are negotiations underway with many of the actors. “Survivor” was also renewed early this year straight to the end of its 30th season, which will air in spring 2015.
