CBS "upfront" coverage introduction

by Paul William Tenny

CBS network logoA general introduction to this coverage can be found in the NBC intro post. This post has links to all of the CBS pages (drama and comedy pilots, and mid-season replacement series) and also lists shows that have been canceled, renewed, and shows "on the bubble".

Posts are updated as new information becomes available through next week about which shows are picked up, and left for dead.

CBS is said to wait the absolute latest to announce their pickups, even though one new series (Mike & Molly) has already leaked out. They have the most shows yet to be renewed, the fewest summer replacements and fewest comedy pilots of any of the big four.

Although CBS does have the most drama pilots.

CBS: Mid-season replacements
CBS: Drama pilots
CBS: Comedy pilots
CBS: Full fall schedule.

Canceled: Three Rivers.

On the bubble: 48 Hours Mystery, 60 Minutes, Accidentally on Purpose, Cold Case, Criminal Minds, CSI, CSI: New York, Gary Unmarried, Ghost Whisperer, I Get That a Lot, Live for the Moment, Medium, The Menalist, Miami Medical, NCIS, The New Adventures of Old Christine, Numb3rs, Rules of Engagement, and There Goes the Neighborhood.

Renewed: The Amazing Race, The Big Bang Theory, The Good Wife, How I Met Your Mother, NCIS: Los Angeles, Survivor, Two and a Half Men, and Undercover Boss.

I should have noted on the other posts as well as htis one that just because a show is "on the bubble" doesn't mean anything towards its chances of renewal. Criminal Minds, for example, along with 60 Minutes are probably guarantees. For CBS the most, but everyone else as well, "on the bubble" might as well be "unknown status".
