[ # ] CBS picked up 18 shows for next season
March 23rd, 2017 under CBS

Days after CBS announced that they picked up The Big Bang Theory for 2 more seasons, today they announced 17 more shows that will join the sitcom next season.. They are Blue Bloods, Bull, Hawaii Five-0, Kevin Can Wait, Life In Pieces, MacGyver, Madam Secretary, Man With A Plan, Mom, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, NCIS: New Orleans, Scorpion, Superior Donuts, Survivor, 48 Hours and 60 Minutes.

The news is not a surprise for most of those shows. Although, I am a little surprised that they picked 5 of their news ones. Well, all but Superior Donuts because I really like that show. When it comes to the other freshman shows, they have not really had a hit on their hands. They are all doing OK in the ratings, but nothing to write home about. Maybe they will do better during their second season. Just like Life in Pieces. Oh wait, did anyone else know that the show was still on the air?

While these are the shows that were picked up, missing is Two Broke Girls, The Odd Couple, Criminal Minds, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, The Great Indoors, Code Black, Training Day, Ransom, Elementary, Amazing Race and Undercover Boss. Of these shows, I think CBS might consider a shortened final season for Criminal Minds, if they can get Shemar Moore to do it. I also suspect that either Two Broke Girls and/or The Odd Couple will be back as a midseason replacement. When it comes to the rest, I think enjoy them while you can because they won’t be back. Unless they really screwed up pilot season and there is nothing besides the TBBT spinoff worth picking up.

There is also one omission from the press release that surprises me. I am surprised that CBS didn’t announce Hawaii Five-0’s final season in it. Alex O’Loughin says that next season will be his last and without him, there is no show. The only reason why they have not made it official is maybe they are still hoping Dan-O will book him.

What shows are you happy they picked up and which ones are you sad that they didn’t?
