Elementary, 2 Broke Girls And 16 Other Series Renewed At CBS

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.

On the drama side of the renewals, in addition to Elementary, which is this season's most-watched new program, The Good Wife, Blue Bloods, The Mentalist and Hawaii Five-0 have secured themselves another run at the network. Below is the full list of eighteen scripted and unscripted shows set to return for the 2013-2014 season.

Note, Two and a Half Men isn't on the list. CBS points out that they're still in discussions with Warner Bros. Television regarding another season of the comedy. So the fate of that one remains uncertain for the time being. The same might be said for Golden Boy and Rules of Engagement, which were also left off the list (and not mentioned in CBS' announcement). The above renewals come ahead of the up fronts this spring, which isn't out of the ordinary for CBS. In fact, the above list looks a lot like last year's list of renewals, which indicates that things are pretty status quo for the network. That's good news for the many fans of their series, who can now enjoy what's left of the above listed shows this season, knowing they'll be back next season.
