    CBS' 20-strong returning slate includes comedies 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly and Two and a Half Men -- as well as freshmen The Millers and Mom. On the drama side, NCIS, NCIS: LA, Person of Interest, CSI, Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, Criminal Minds, Elementary and The Good Wife will all be back for additional seasons.

    With reality shows The Amazing Race and Undercover Boss and venerable news series 60 Minutes and 48 hours also scoring renewals, the only question marks in the massive order are freshman comedy The Crazy Ones, veteran drama The Mentalist and midseason offerings Intelligence and Friends With Better Lives -- the latter of which has yet to premiere.

    Glad for the main ones that were a shoe-in.

    Also glad for Mom and The Millers (love Allison Janney and Margo Martindale).

    I'd like to see 'The Crazy Ones' renewed but don't feel like I'll hold my breath. I like Robin Williams and he is not all whacked out crazy in this. I also liked it when they had him with Brad Garrett. They are similar, but good together. I also really like Hamish Linklater. I'd keep watching. :)

    Another vote here for "The Crazy Ones". I hope it is renewed.

    I've never heard of "Almost Everything"...is that one of the new dramas CBS had this season?? Glad it's renewed...I think. :D

    As for the other shows, glad to see the 2-3 shows we watch on CBS get renewed.

    Conspicuously missing, Survivor. Have they already announced it would be coming back?

    I don't watch most of those shows, but I will be disappointed to see The Crazy Ones get cancelled (not renewed, whatever).

    I believe The Mentalist is in its final season so I'd be surprised if it gets renewed.

    That's an urban legend that just won't die, but this was intended to be a transitional season (from Red John to the new status quo that has recently emerged). Doesn't mean it WILL be back, but they don't WANT to go away.

    If this were supposed to be the last season, they wouldn't have wrapped up Red John so early and then set up all this new stuff.

    More Good Wife! Yay!

    I'm surprised, but the show is critically acclaimed at least. And this season has really hit the ball out of the park.

    I like The Crazy Ones much more than Mom or The Millers. And will be very disappointed if it doesn't return.

    Also glad to see Blue Bloods renewed. Even though it's often the top-rated Friday series, it falls in that CBS gray area where ratings are often not the deciding factor (which The Mentalist also falls into).

    Agree, I watched those other shows and didn't like either of them.

    Hey AARP, Geritol and Viagra will pay top dollar to advertise on that show :)

    I'd like to have The Mental Ones and The Crazyist return, but if not, so be it. Don't care about Intelligence.

    I watch Blue Bloods because Frank Regan is the finest New York police commissioner you could possibly have. :D

    How is it that a show is on death row if it's put on Friday night prime time on practically all networks other than CBS? A number of those shows are Friday night staples for many years running now.

    CBS (somewhat) accepts its older demographic. Old people (being one) don't get out as much on Friday night as younger folk. Other networks send you to CBS when you turn 50; they only want 18-49 viewers.

    Obviously, exceptions exists, but there is at least statistical truth to the argument.

    I'm glad the Red John arc ended, but Mentalist 2.0 isn't really working for me. I could let this one go.

    Me too.

    The Red John story got to be tedious and annoying, but this reset of the show bored me.

    Season pass cancelled. No sense trying to hang on just for old times' sake.
