CBS announced a bunch of renewals today. These shows will all be back next season:
The Amazing Race
The Big Bang Theory
NCIS: Los Angeles
NCIS: New Orleans
Here's an updated list of shows whose fates are still up in the air (with my predictions in parentheses):
9JKL (low rated new show, likely canceled)
Code Black (new season premieres in May, fate beyond that unknown)
Criminal Minds (getting old and expensive, has been a last minute decision the past few seasons, could go either way, but I think it gets renewed)
Instinct (low rated new show, likely canceled)
Kevin Can Wait (good ratings, should get renewed)
Life in Pieces (good ratings, should get renewed)
Living Biblically (low rated new show, likely canceled)
Man with a Plan (good ratings, should get renewed)
Scorpion (falling ratings, but I think it gets renewed)
Superior Donuts (good ratings, should get renewed)
scorpion would pick up again if they went back to a decent hour and night!
CBS has cancelled Scorpion.
This one is a surprise. Despite low ratings, CBS usually does not cancel shows that it owns after just 4 seasons. Syndication deals (and foreign sales) are usually lucrative enough to keep a low rated CBS-owned show going for at least 6 seasons, which is why shows like Madam Secretary and Elementary (both of which are lower-rated than Scorpion) are still on the air.
Another surprise from CBS...
Instinct has been picked up for a second season.
I definitely did not see this one coming. It's the lowest-rated new show on CBS. That's always a sure sign of death. Even more puzzling is that its ratings are worse than Scorpion, which was just canceled.
More comedy news from CBS:
Life in Pieces and Man with a Plan have both been picked up for another season.
Superior Donuts has been canceled.
The surprises from CBS just keep coming...
Kevin Can Wait has been canceled.
This is a shocker. Ratings are down about 25% from last season, but it's still the #6 show on CBS.
That does not make sense.
They must have better comedies planned for the fall.
