For the third year in a row, CBS renewed pretty much all their shows in one March swoop. 18 series were renewed by the Eye network, joining the already renewed Survivor and The Big Bang Theory. A few were left in the cold (more on that below).
Left off the list was The Mentalist, The Crazy Ones, Hostages, and Intelligence along with the departing How I Met Your Mother and cancelled We Are Men. Hostages and Intelligence are dead while it doesn't look good for The Crazy Ones after a strong start. The Mentalist would be the toughest cancellation but CBS often has to end a reliable veteran drama and that may be it this year. Still to premiere for CBS is Friends with Better Lives and Bad Teacher.
