‘Criminal Minds’ Renewed by CBS for Season 12

6 May 2016 10:07 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

CBS has renewed Joe Mantegna drama “Criminal Minds” for Season 12. Currently in its 11th season, the procedural still draws just over 12 million total viewers per episode — good enough to be a Top 10 drama. “Criminal Minds” averages a 2.8 rating/9 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic — that’s second-best for CBS. Those numbers are per Nielsen’s “most current” ratings metric, which counts seven-day delayed viewing where available.
