CBS has unveiled their 2014-2015 lineup, and in addition to the return of some old favorites -- The Big Bang Theory, NCIS, Survivor and others -- the Eye is lining up a few new dramas and comedies, among which is the NCIS spinoff, NCIS: New Orleans, a psychological thriller called Stalker and a new ensemble comedy called The McCarthys.
Yesterday, word broke that CBS had given a massive 3-season renewal to The Big Bang Theory. Today, good news has come down for eighteen -- yes, eighteen! -- other CBS series. These aren't three-season renewals, but the network has ensured that a lot of their currently airing programs will be back on the air for the 2014-2015 season.
2013 has been a great year for television, so narrowing down our list of favorites was no easy task. As TV Blend has numerous writers with varying tastes in TV shows, we decided to go solo this year in sharing our Top 5 lists of the best series of 2013. This is Mack's list, which begins with an underrated procedural at #5.
I watch shows like The Americans, Parenthood and Game Of Thrones to be surprised. I watch procedurals when I want the familiar. Unfortunately, thereís one thing thatís a little too familiar about random episodes of procedurals: killers who are way the hell more famous than every other random guest star.
Elementary is gearing up for a successful second season over at CBS. The series is sticking to its guns and its 10 p.m. Thursday slot next season, but the popular crime drama is still going to shake things up a bit with its cast. In fact, Season 2 will add a famous name from the Sherlock Holmes canon, bringing Mycroft Holmes into some plots throughout Season 2. In Elementaryís world, Mycroft will be played by none other than Rhys Ifans.
All of these positives likely contributed to the CBS dramaís Season 2 renewal earlier this month, but if you havenít been able to catch the modern day Sherlock Holmes tale, youíll be able to do so when Elementary hits DVD later this summer. Elementary: The First Season will hit shelves on August 27.
CBS has announced their 2013-2014 schedule today, revealing their plans to shuffle things around to make room for the four new comedies and new dramas they have joining the line-up. Person of Interest will move to Tuesdays at 10:00 p.m., while Hawaii Five-0 has been shifted to Fridays. The Eye has new series Hostages set to air Monday nights following their two-hour comedy block, which features two returning shows and two new comedies.
Holmes is heading home for Season 2 of Elementary! CBS announced today that their popular Sherlock Holmes detective series is headed to London for the second season premiere episode. And not a U.S. or Canadian set version of London, but the real deal! The Season 2 premiere will be filmed in London starting in July. This will be the first time the drama is being shot anywhere outside of New York.
These days, Natalie Dormer can be found trying to secure herself as the Queen on HBO's Game of Thrones. But it looks like the former Tudors star is going to be making an appearance on network television in the near future. And from what's been reported, it's a pretty big role with a multi-episode arc on the popular CBS drama series.
CBS passed along some good news for more than a dozen of their primetime shows. 18 series received renewals from the Eye today, among which are The Big Bang Theory, 2 Broke Girls, NCIS, and newcomer Elementary. CBS is also moving forward with three of their popular reality series, Survivor, The Amazing Race and Undercover Boss.
F. Murray Abraham is headed to CBS to hop into an episode of the networkís hit freshman crime drama, Elementary. Abraham is no stranger to crime dramas, having played characters on both Homeland and Law & Order: Criminal Intent in the past. This time around, heíll play a wily hitman who may meet his match in Sherlock Holmes.
Last night, the Super Bowl scored giant ratings for CBS, bringing in big numbers for the network. Unfortunately, those good numbers didnít extend to CBSí post-game viewing of Elementary. The episode drew in fewer Super Bowl numbers than any other Super Bowl post-game programming in the last nine years.
Just a few weeks ago, things were looking peachy keen for two of CBSí freshman dramas. Both Elementary and Vegas were given full season orders, bringing both shows to a neat and tidy 22-episodes. Now, CBS has decided to pull favorites with the two programs and is adding episodes to one show and retracting episodes from another.
The coveted post-Super Bowl spot has been filled for 2013. It's customary for whatever network is hosting the Super Bowl to air some lead-out programming, which benefits from the massive viewership of the big football game. Last year, NBC aired The Voice after the Super Bowl. And Glee, Undercover Boss, The Office and House are among the recent programs to air post-Super Bowl and come 2013, Elementary joins that list.
Today, CBS announced the network will be giving two hit freshman dramas, Elementary and Vegas, a full season order. Both programs have received nine additional episodes to air on the channel, bringing both series to a full 22 episodes for Season 1.
