RENEWAL ALERT: Bull, MacGyver, Kevin Can Wait, Man with a Plan, Superior Donuts, Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, NCIS: Los Angeles, NCIS: New Orleans, Scorpion, Madam Secretary, Life in Pieces, Mom, Survivor, 60 Minutes, 48 Hours

As they often do, CBS handed out a flurry of renewals all at once, joining the previously renewed The Big Bang Theory and NCIS

CBS renewed five freshman for a good showing for the new class. Dramas Bull and MacGyver and comedies Kevin Can Wait, Man with a Plan, and Superior Donuts were all given second seasons. Most of these were expected but perhaps Superior Donuts was the most on the bubble. However, it has fit in very well in the Monday lineup and CBS rewarded it with a renewal.

Several mainstay dramas and comedies got renewals too: Hawaii Five-0 (season 8), Blue Bloods (season 8), NCIS: Los Angeles (season 9), NCIS: New Orleans (season 4), Scorpion (season 4), Madam Secretary (season 4), Life in Pieces (season 3), Mom (season 5), Survivor (35th/36th edition), 60 Minutes (season 50!), and 48 Hours (season 31). None of these are major shocks. Maybe the most on the bubble was Madam Secretary but even that's not surprising.

The shows notably missing from this list are 2 Broke Girls, Code Black, Criminal Minds, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Elementary, The Great Indoors, Hunted, and Undercover Boss. At least a few of those will get renewed and it could be several of them. Shows that are not likely continuing are The Odd Couple, Pure Genius, Ransom, and Training Day.
