CBS Renews "Big Bang Theory" Plus 10 Shows For 2008/2009 Season
Comedies "How I Met Your Mother," "Rules of Engagement," "The New Adventures of Old Christine" and freshman drama "Moonlight" not on the list of renewals (yet). Will one of them get canceled?
CBS announced on Thursday it is picking up 9 procedurals and 2 comedies for the 2008/2009 season.
The obvious drama pick-ups include: "CSI," "CSI: Miami," "CSI: NY," "Without a Trace," "Criminal Minds," "NCIS," "Cold Case," "Ghost Whisperer," and "Numb3rs."
The two comedies renewed were TV's top sitcom "Two and a Half Men," as well as hit freshman comedy "The Big Bang Theory."
The network has previously picked up its two hottest reality series "Survivor" (for 2 cycles) and "The Amazing Race."
The 3 comedies which have not been renewed so far may have to fight for one remaining spot in the Monday night line-up (providing CBS launches a new comedy in one of the 4 time slots next fall).
One of them could also come back midseason, but it appears at least one comedy might get canceled. I personally hope it is not "How I Met Your Mother," but CBS management is not rumored to like that sitcom very much.
