CBS announced today that NCIS: LA and NCIS: NoLA will be back on their lineup in fall along with NCIS. Those three shows and The Big Bang Theory will be joined by Scorpion, Survivor, Mom, 2 Broke Girls, Elementary, Amazing Race, Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods and Madam Secretary.
What’s missing from the renewals, all the new shows Supergirl, Limitless, Code Black, Life in Pieces and Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders. On that note, Criminal Minds is also missing, as is the last CSI show from the franchise, CSI: Cyber. The only reality show not on there is Undercover Boss and I hope that makes it back because it is an important show for CEOs to watch.
There are four other shows that were not mentioned today and they were already cancelled. They are Mike & Molly, Person of Interest, The Good Wife and Angel From Hell.
Granted there’s also no mention of Rush Hour and The Odd Couple, but they have yet to air this season. I am rooting for both to get picked up.
What do you think of the lucky 13 shows that will be back on CBS next season?
After months of waiting to find when Person of Interest would be back on CBS with all new episodes, fans finally got an answer today. The show returns on May 3rd and ends its 5 year run on June 21st.
This wasn’t CBS’s only news, they also announced the season finales for all of their shows.
You can put the dates in the calendar; but their schedule is so confusing, I am just letting my DVR do all of the work.

NCIS is in its 13th season and it is still the #1 drama and #1 scripted show on television in America and the world. So what I am about to tell you, should not surprise you. CBS picked it up for two more seasons today. As soon as the show’s lead Mark Harmon signed on the dotted line, so did they. Which you can’t blame them, can you?
What about the show’s two spinoffs NCIS: LA and NCIS: NoLA? We don’t know yet, but I am sure at least one if not both will be back.
Not many shows can say they were cancelled not once, not twice, but three times. Today, Unforgettable gets that strange and awful honor.
After its first season, CBS announced that they cancelled the show about a cop who remembers everything. Then a few weeks later, they picked it up for another season and moved it to summer. After two seasons of airing in the summer, they pulled the plug on the drama again.
Then a few months later, A&E announced they picked it up for a fourth season. Now that show aired all of its episodes for this season, Deadline reports it cancelled once again.
Since this is a Sony show, I really hope they pick up for a 5th season. I want to know if Al lives. Don’t you hate when a show ends on a cliffhanger and then gets cancelled?
CBS has cancelled cancelled Angel From Hell after just five episodes according to The Hollywood Reporter. Why did I say cancelled cancelled? Because this is only the second show this season to be pulled from the lineup before all of their filmed episodes aired. The other show was ABC’s Wicked City.
The show’s star Jane Lynch confirmed the news on Twitter with, “Oh my newly minted #anghellions. Thank you for supporting our show! It is so sad but what a joy was had. 😇💋”
Is the news a surprise? No, the sitcom was from Hell. It was truly awful and I like the cast. This was just a really bad unfunny show.
So what will be replacing it on Thursdays at 9:30p? A Big Bang Theory repeat this week and then 2 Broke Girls will air their remaining episodes for this season in that slot.
The Good Wife is not on tonight because the Super Bowl is on instead, so CBS thought this would be the perfect time to announce that the critically acclaimed drama is indeed ending this season on May 8th. The news is not a surprise because their have been hints about it. A few weeks ago at CBS’s TCA Winter Press Day, they announced that the show’s creators, Robert and Michelle King, are leaving and the show’s star, Julianna Margulies, recently joked at an event that she would be out of work in April.
Glenn Geller, President, CBS Entertainment and David Stapf, President, CBS Television Studios has this to say, “It’s never easy to say goodbye to one of the crown jewels of your network and studio, much less to a show that is among the best on television,” adding, “But it also feels very right to end with the seven-year story its creators envisioned, and to celebrate the show’s final run while at the top of its creative game.”
While The Kings promised, “We’re looking forward to using this seventh season to bring Alicia’s story to its natural conclusion.”
Are you sad the show is ending or do you think this feels like the right time to bow out?
Recently at the CBS TCA Winter Press Day the network announced that Robert and Michelle King, who created The Good Wife, are leaving the critically acclaimed drama at the end of the season. Many fans of the show wanted to know if it would go on without them.
Yesterday, when the couple was being honored at the Casting Society of America’s third annual Artios Awards, Julianna Margulies came to surprise them. According to Vulture, she told the audience packed with casting directors, “They (The Kings) didn’t know I was going to be here. They think I’m here for them, but I’m unemployed come April, and I think you haven’t seen me in a while, at least not in person, so I thought I should show up.”
Does that mean the show is over? We will either have to wait until CBS makes it official or until the season/series finale airs. Whichever one comes first and I think it might be the latter if it airs before the upfronts. Either way, we probably won’t have a verdict until May.
Are you objecting the news or do you think it is sustained?
First off, I really like Jane Lynch, but I really hate Angel From Hell. The CBS comedy that debuts at 9:30p lives up the last two words in its name.
Allison Fuller (Maggie Lawson) is an uptight Dermatologist, whose life is falling apart around her but she doesn’t see it. So her Guardian Angel, Amy (Jane Lynch), is going to make herself known to her and try to fix her life. Only thing is Amy is a wisecracking mess who seems like anything but an Angel. Thus the name. In fact, it seems like whenever Amy tries to help her, she makes things worse.
Lynch is fine in smaller increments, but as a lead on this show, it is too much. I liked Lawson on Psych, but she is not good fit for this show. Which leads to it seeming like there is no chemistry between to the leads, and that hampers it even more.
I wish I could say it gets better, but the second episode is just bad. So watch it if you want.
You would think that because CBS airs football on Thursday and Sunday nights that they would know something about their fans, and you would be completely wrong. First they announced that The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is going to follow the Super Bowl, and they are so not the audience for that show. Then today they along with Pepsi announced that Coldplay is going to play the halftime show. Are they trying to put us to sleep?
Seriously, why are they trying to make Coldplay a thing? They were never a thing. Even at the height of their career, only a few people really thought wow, I love their music. They suck. They are boring. Football fans would rather watch the Puppy and Kitten Bowls over Coldplay. The only way men will care about Gwyneth Paltrow’s uncoupled man is if they have hot women dancing with them. Otherwise, expect people to ignore the lackluster performance.
Seriously, why hasn’t anyone asked Bon Jovi to do it? Now that is a band that could get the stadium rocking!
CBS‘s schedule is broken, so they are trying to fix it by moving things around on Wednesdays and Thursday.
I like that 2 Broke Girls and Mike & Molly will be paired together because they are CBS’s funniest comedies. I just wish it wasn’t only happening for a few weeks. Maybe they know that they will be using it to replace Angel From Hell when it fails miserably. But then again only one new fall show didn’t air all of its ordered episodes, so maybe they will stick with the comedy that is hell to watch until the end of the episode order.
Now the really bad new comes for fans of Person of Interest, the show still doesn’t have an air date. I have a feeling CBS will hold it for summer since they have some holes to fill due to the cancellation of Under the Dome and Extant. Personally, I am bummed that Rush Hour doesn’t have a start date because I enjoyed it so much more than Limitless.
It’s funny, I used to be a huge fan of CBS shows, but now I am down to watching just Supergirl, Scorpion, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, The Odd Couple and Blue Bloods. I guess I am just too young for them. Are you a person losing interest in them too? See what I did there?
