While pilot season is in full swing, it’s important for the networks to remember they have a whole bunch of shows already on the air. CBS, the top-rated network in prime time, did just that as they announced the return of 18 of their evening programs for the 2012-13 season.
In a statement, Nina Tassler head of CBS Entertainment says, “This large-scale renewal is testimony to the strength, stability and success of a deep and diverse roster of top-rated programming.”
While “Two and a Half Men” didn’t receive an immediate renewal, the network says they are in “preliminary discussions.” This likely means that Ashton Kutcher wants more money. Also missing from this list is “CSI: Miami” and “CSI: New York.”
