CBS Announces "Large Scale" Renewal for 2012-2013 Season

by at . Comments

CBS announced such a "large scale" renewal today - in the words of President Nina Tassler - that it's almost easier to list the shows that did NOT receive a pick-up by the network.

They include such long-running dramas as CSI: NY and CSI: Miami, although no word at the moment does not necessarily mean no renewal.

Now, on to the shows that really do have a reason to celebrate, including three that received the good new a few weeks ago...

PLEASE RENEW CSI NEW YORK.. you have to. PLEASE! it's better than the original!!!


Please renew csi miami for 2013.


Reality shows are cheaper to make; that's why there are so many. The comedies are full of sexual inuendo to the point of being repetitive and boring. I am able to watch A Gifted Man with my grandchild with us both enjoying it. I am hoping it will be continued but then I am older than that desirable buying demographic and will probably be ignored in spite of being forced these days to buy the tv service that used to be free.


Please renew A Gifted Man!!! It was one of my favorite shows to watch this season, I looked forward to it every week. I agree with the others about less reality please!!!


I am very happy to see that most of my drama's will be back! I Love NCIS, NCIS L.A., Criminal Minds, Hawaii 5-0, and CSI! I do however hope and pray to see CSI:NY return and Unforgettable two very fantastic shows which I Love!


I really love A Gifted Man. Please don't cancel this show. It's one of the new shows that make me look forward to watching TV. Patrick Wilson is so credible as Dr Michael Holt. Love him, love the show.


Please renew CSI NY it is my favorite of the CSI shows. I love the cast, I love the attention and respect that Mac and the team gives to what happened on 9/11 and to the military. I like the interaction between the cast members and think adding Sela Ward was great..she adds a lighter side to Mac. Please renew!


please renew csi new york and Miami they are two of my favorite shows. I watch cbs more than any other station. beside the food network and hgtv. please keep them


Keep CSI:NY. Show grows on you and well written tho is getting a little long in tooth. Felt the Hells Kitchen episode tonight was reaching for it.
Maybe because I'm a long time resident but the routine just didn't feel right. Glad to see the ones that do have their renewals. All are solid ones and 2 Broke Girls is a fresh face. Very hip, funny and good heart.


I watch CBS more than any other network during prime-time. I am thrilled that Hawaii Five-0 & Person of Interest are renewed. I am enjoying the refreshed CSI with Ted Danson. It's almost like a new show! Get rid of the reality shows [Undercover Boss, Amazing Race, Survivor] even though I know you make much more money with those shows or make THEIR seasons shorter so that the GOOD shows aren't canceled. Rather than cancel either CSI: Miami or CSI: NY, why not give each a half season and have them share a time slot. They should at least be given a chance at closure for the sake of the fans! I watch CBS 11 out of 21 hours during prime-time. Another 5 hours on ABC (1-2 hours ~ DWTS but not the results show), NBC (3 ~ Celebrity Apprentice & Who Do You Think You Are) & FOX (1 ~ Bones). I do watch a lot of CBS syndicated shows on TNT & USA. If you don't want to continue to produce the two CSI spin-offs, play them on one of your other networks or do a number like you did with Flashpoint (another GREAT show you dropped the ball on!)! You've got some great shows right now and are the #1 network...don't lose the shows that MADE you #1!!
