Last season, CBS tried to establish new shows but almost all of them were cancelled due to low ratings. No new dramas survived and only two sitcoms did. Which shows will be cancelled or renewed this time? We'll have wait and see.
CBS shows this season (so far): 2 Broke Girls, 48 Hours, 60 Minutes, The Amazing Race, Battle Creek, The Big Bang Theory, Blue Bloods, The Briefcase, Criminal Minds, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Cyber, Elementary, The Good Wife, Hawaii Five-0, Madam Secretary, The McCarthys, The Mentalist, Mike & Molly, The Millers, Mom, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, NCIS: New Orleans, The Odd Couple, Person of Interest, Scorpion, Stalker, Survivor, Two and a Half Men, and Undercover Boss.
There's lots of data that CBS looks at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series but ratings are typically the biggest piece. Here's how »
How do you memorialize something that is essentially immortal? There will be a time, presumably, when humans no longer watch episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation or any of its three spinoffs (CSI: Miami; CSI: NY; and CSI: Cyber, which is still on the air) or read CSI-branded novels or comic books or play CSI board and video games or visit traveling museum exhibits like “CSI: The Experience” or suffer, while on jury duty, from the so-called CSI Effect. Just as there was a time, presumably, before any of those things existed — October 5, 2000, to be precise, one day before the CSI pilot premiered. Bill Clinton was still our president; Facebook and YouTube didn’t yet exist; and The West Wing and Will & Grace had just won the Emmys for Best Drama and Best Comedy, respectively. October 5, 2000, was also the last day before the world discovered »

Marg Helgenberger came to CBS Summer Press Day to talk about joining the network’s summer series Under The Dome. But, with CSI: Crime Scene Investigation ending its series run — Helgenberger’s set to return to the show for its swan song this fall– she got asked about that show and its “global” reach. She said she was in Cuba in November and “assumed they didn’t get American television there, and the moment I went through Customs” people recognized her. “When you’re… »
Big changes are afoot at CBS as the network makes an aggressive push to usher in younger viewers. Part of that sweeping change is the end of long-running “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” which will conclude with a two-hour movie next year after 15 seasons on the air. What does this mean for the future of the franchise? It means the pressure is on “CSI: Cyber.” “Cyber” seemed to have all the right stuff: a cool and timely concept, a younger supporting cast lead by Patricia Arquette fresh off her Oscar win for “Boyhood” and that “CSI” stamp with its millions of die-hard. »

Wrapping up its most watched season in seven years, The CW Network presented its 2015-16 broadcast schedule today to advertisers, affiliates and national media at New York City Center in New York City. The indie-pop band Of Monsters and Men kicked off the presentation with a live performance of their latest single "Crystals," and their international hit song "Little Talks." Here's what CW's Mark Pedowitz had to say in a statement.
"This has been a terrific season for The CW, and is a result of a strategy we set in motion a few years ago to broaden out and grow our audience. We had our most watched season, and our highest-rated season among men, in seven years. We launched The CW's most watched series ever with The Flash, and with The Flash and Jane the Virgin, we received more critical acclaim than ever before. The CW is heading into »

The series was once CBS' top-rated show but those days are long gone and it's now time for the original CSI: Crime Scene Investigation TV series to end. There won't be a 16th season but there will be a conclusion.
Debuting in October 2000, CSI follows Las Vegas crime scene investigators as they try to solve bizarre cases. This season's castmates are Ted Danson, Elisabeth Shue, George Eads, Jorja Fox, Eric Szmanda, Robert David Hall, Wallace Langham, David Berman, Elisabeth Hamois, and Jon Wellner.
The mothership is being decommissioned. A few weeks ago, we reported that CBS's long-running series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation was officially cancelled, but there was speculation about how (or if) it might wrap up. After 15 years of being a flagship franchise, you don't exactly just go off the air (unless you're Law & Order -- a mistake NBC made that CBS is clearly learning from). A small note in CBS's fall schedule has now revealed the series' fate: a 2-hour finale that will feature the return of some original cast members, including William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger. That finale, on September 27th, will then be followed the next week with the season premiere of CSI: Cyber (which CSI cast member Ted Danson will now be joining). The circle of life. So CSI will be gone, but not forgotten. The show ranked as the most-watched drama series in the world five times during its run. »

CBS today unveiled its 2015-2016 primetime lineup, featuring seven new shows and 22 returning series. CBS will build on a schedule that will finish the current season as America's most-watched network in viewers for the 12th time in 13 years, including the last seven years straight. The new fall dramas are: the heart-pounding medical series Code Black, set in the busiest, most notorious ER in the nation; the fast-paced Limitless, based on the feature film with Bradley Cooper, starring Jake McDorman as an average guy who can suddenly access 100% of his brain capacity with a mysterious pill; and Supergirl, starring Melissa Benoist in the title role based on the DC Comics superhero.
The new fall comedies are: Angel from Hell, about a loud, colorful, often inappropriate woman who claims to be a guardian angel, starring Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch and Maggie Lawson; and Life in Pieces, an irreverent »

CBS owes a great deal of its success over the past 15 years to the original "CSI," which is why it's getting the grand farewell treatment its spin-offs didn't. "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" has been canceled, but there will be a two-hour finale special on September 27, bringing back original castmembers including William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger. The franchise will continue with the renewal of "CSI: Cyber," which will add Ted Danson (who has fronted "CSI" Coke Classic in its final years) to its cast. At CBS' annual upfronts press breakfast, scheduling chief Kelly Kahl called the original "CSI" a show that was "easy to take for granted, easy to forget. This is one of the strongest, longest-running dramas in TV history, and very important to us as a network. It was one of the shows that really helped reverse our fortunes and point us in a very positive direction. So I'm »

CBS is saying goodbye to the show that turned the network’s fortunes around some 15 years ago. “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” will wrap its 15-season run in September with a two-hour finale that will reunite original stars William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger.
The finale will air Sept. 27 and feature other returning cast members who have been on the forensic procedural over its run. Ted Danson, the current “CSI” star, will relocate to the latest spinoff, “CSI: Cyber,” opposite Patricia Arquette.
“It’s easy to take it for granted,” said Kelly Kahl, CBS senior exec VP. “This is one of the strongest and longest-running dramas in TV history.” He noted its importance to CBS: “This was one of the shows that reversed our fortunes and put us in the right direction.”

Fifteen seasons. Fifteen years. Talk about a good run. "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" premiered back on October 6, 2000 and it's finally ending on September 27, 2015. It's not a shock to see the series end -- how long would you expect it to go on? -- but CBS made it official today, adding that the show will close with a two-hour TV movie starring OGs William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger. Season 15 already aired 18 episodes from September 2014 to February 2015, and the writing was on the wall when CBS cut the episode order by four. But at least they are giving the show a TV movie with the original cast, instead of just coldly announcing "You're canceled."
In more positive news, current "CSI" star Ted Danson will just move on over to the Patricia Arquette spinoff, "CSI: Cyber." So it's not like they're giving up on the franchise. But it's truly the end of an »
