CBS announced today that they are picking up Ghosts, The Neighborhood, and Bob Hearts Abishola for another season. The three shows will join Young Sheldon and CSI: Vegas on the 2022-2023 schedule.

“We’re thrilled to bring back television’s four most-watched comedies for next season, and I’m proud of the incredible team that maintains CBS’ position as the clear leader in comedy,” said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. “Joe Port and Joe Wiseman, together with a breakout cast and exceptional writers, have done a superb job of adapting GHOSTS for the U.S. and absolutely making it their own. This smart and charming show is delivering new creative highs, not to mention scaring up new audience highs, every week.”

“And on Mondays, the perfect pairing of THE NEIGHBORHOOD and BOB HEARTS ABISHOLA continues to deftly blend belly laughs with relatable and culturally relevant storylines, thanks to these exceptionally talented actors and outstanding creative teams,” Kahl continued.

Ghosts has been the surprise hit of the Fall. Each week the show has been finding more and more viewers, and they are sticking around. That is the power of the heartfelt, funny comedy that makes you fall in love with it at first sight.


Young Sheldon is going to be Old Sheldon at this rate

CBS announced today that it picked up Young Sheldon for three more seasons. That means that Iain Armitage, who plays Sheldon, will be 15 at the end of this renewal and a college junior on the sitcom. That is if he doesn’t skip a grade and go for his master’s degree. I don’t know all of the details of Sheldon’s life between Young Sheldon and The Big Bang Theory. His character would, but I am not a brainiac like him.

Young Sheldon is currently airing its 4th season. Its season finale will air on May 13th.


Mom will be saying goodbye in May

Earlier today, CBS picked up their Monday comedies for another season. Now, they announced that Mom will not be back for a ninth one.

“For the past eight years, we’ve had the great honor to bring these wonderful characters to life, sharing their struggles and triumphs with millions of viewers every week,” said executive producers Lorre, Gemma Baker and Nick Bakay. “From the beginning, we set out to tell stories about recovery from alcoholism and addiction that are rarely portrayed in a network comedy series. Whether it was the emotional reactions of the live audience on tape night inside Stage 20, or discussions at The White House regarding the opioid crisis, or the personal stories we continue to receive on social media, we take great pride in knowing Mom has positively impacted so many lives. We are forever grateful to our brilliant cast and guest stars, wonderful writers, and amazing crew for going on this journey with us.”

A journey that hit a bump in the road when Anna Faris told producers over the summer that she would not be returning to the show this season. I guess with her abandoning ship and the show getting more expensive to produce, CBS felt now was the right time for the show to reach its 12th step.

The series also stars Allison Janney. I am sure the actress, who won an Oscar, will be OK, since she will have more time to make movies.


CBS is still laughing on Mondays

CBS announced today that they are bringing back its Monday night comedies, The Neighborhood for a fourth season and Bob ♥ Abishola for a third one.

“We’re extremely proud of these two comedies, and delighted to bring them back next season,” said Thom Sherman, Senior Executive Vice President, Programming, CBS Entertainment. “THE NEIGHBORHOOD and BOB ♥ ABISHOLA masterfully blend humor with relatable and culturally relevant storylines, and are tremendous, successful Monday night anchors.”

Now that CBS is bringing back Bob, I hope that they also bring back the song and dance numbers. That episode was so special because of the two group dances. We need more of that on television. And don’t tell me that is what Dancing with the Stars is all about. I ain’t doing Tyra.


Bob Hearts Abishola finds its funk

Last night, Bob Hearts Abishola delivered its best episode to date. It started and ended with a song and dance number.

While I could not find the first one online, it is OK, because the closing one was even better. They ended the CBS sitcom with Bob dancing to Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk with his co-workers. Who knew Billy Gardell could move like that?

I enjoyed these numbers so much, I hope they could be part of every episode from now on. Why not? Other shows do it!

This is not the first time Chuck Lorre has done this on one of his shows. He did an epic one with his Netflix pot comedy Disjointed. He is so good at it; I think the former musician should do a musical show. Can someone tell him I said to do that?
