CBS ANNOUNCES RENEWALS FOR 18 PRIMETIME SHOWS FOR NEXT SEASON

Combined With Two Previously Announced Renewals, Network Has Now Picked Up 20 Returning Series for 2014-2015

Returning Series Will Include the #1 Drama, #1 Comedy, #1 New Comedy and #1 News Program

CBS, America's most-watched network, today announced pick-ups for 18 series for next season. Combined with its previously announced pick-ups, CBS has now renewed 20 returning series for the 2014-2015 season, encompassing 17 hours of primetime programming.

"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," said Nina Tassler, Chairman of CBS Entertainment. "The shows we're picking up today cut across every night of the week and feature genre leaders, time-period winners and the most-watched shows on broadcast television."

The 18 series renewed today comprise 15.5 hours of CBS's weekly primetime schedule and include nine dramas, five comedies, two reality series and two news programs.

The nine dramas picked up are: NCIS, television's #1 drama/scripted program for the fifth consecutive year; NCIS: LOS ANGELES, the #2 drama for the fourth straight year; time-period winners PERSON OF INTEREST, CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, HAWAII FIVE-0 and BLUE BLOODS; as well as CRIMINAL MINDS, ELEMENTARY and the acclaimed drama THE GOOD WIFE.

The renewed comedies are 2 BROKE GIRLS, THE MILLERS, which is the #1 freshman comedy of the 2013-2014 season, MIKE & MOLLY, MOM and the long-running hit TWO AND A HALF MEN.

In alternative programming, the Network announced pick-ups for its Emmy Award-winning reality series THE AMAZING RACE and UNDERCOVER BOSS.

Finally, in news, CBS will return 60 MINUTES, television's #1 news program for more than four decades, and 48 HOURS, Saturday's #1 non-sports program.

In addition to these 18 series, CBS yesterday announced a three-year broadcast deal for THE BIG BANG THEORY. Previously, the Network announced two more editions of the reality series SURVIVOR for next season.

Season-to-date, CBS is television's #1 network in viewers for the 11th time in 12 years, averaging 10.84 million viewers.
