CBS renews ‘CSI,’ ‘Good Wife,’ ‘Two and a Half Men,’ 15 other shows
LOS ANGELES — Sorry, Robin Williams, but you and your peeps at “The Crazy Ones” will just have to wait a little longer.
CBS announced Thursday it will return 18 series already on the schedule for the 2014-15 TV season, including old favorites such as “NCIS,” “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “Two and a Half Men.”
New comedies “The Millers” and “Mom” made the cut as well, as did the critically acclaimed but sometimes ratings-challenged drama “The Good Wife.”
But some notable freshmen weren’t on the list, including Williams’ ad-firm comedy “Crazy Ones” and the cyber-thriller “Intelligence,” which premiered last month.
“The best way to launch new shows in the fall and throughout the season is to surround them with a strong and stable lineup of successful series,” CBS Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler wrote in a statement.
Other dramas being picked up for next season are “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “Person of Interest,” “Hawaii Five-O,” “Blue Bloods,” “Criminal Minds” and “Elementary.”
Among comedies, “2 Broke Girls” and “Mike &Molly” are also coming back, as are the reality perennials “The Amazing Race” and “Undercover Boss.” The newsmagazine “60 Minutes,” which premiered in 1968, also returns.
In addition, CBS this week revealed a three-year renewal deal for its sitcom smash “The Big Bang Theory” and also earlier announced a return for “Survivor.”
