CBS Re-Ups 18 Shows, but Not ‘Two and a Half Men’ Yet

“2 Broke Girls,” “Person of Interest” among the mass renewals

CBS has re-upped 18 of its shows for next season, including "2 Broke Girls," "Person of Interest" and "Hawaii 5-0."

The mass renewal includes four comedies, nine dramas, three reality offerings and two newsmagazines. It does not include "Two and a Half Men," as that show's return is still being negotiated.

The comedy pickups include the previously announced, multi-year pickups of "How I Met Your Mother" and "The Big Bang Theory," as well as "2 Broke Girls," which proved to be a hit for the network in its first season, and "Mike & Molly."

But the renewal of "Two and a Half Men" is still up in the air. According to CBS, the network and Warner Bros. Television "are in preliminary discussions regarding future seasons" for the show, which successfully weathered the ousting of star Charlie Sheen last year.

Of the dramas, "NCIS" and "NCIS: Los Angeles" have received the green light for another season, along with "Hawaii 5-0," "Criminal Minds," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Person of Interest," "The Mentalist," "Blue Bloods" and "The Good Wife."

On the reality front, "The Amazing Race" and "Undercover Boss" join "Survivor," which had previously been renewed.

The network's long-running newsmagazine "60 Minutes" will also return in the fall, as will "48 Hours Mystery."
