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 the network's shows are doing so far. »
Sometimes great TV comedy makes you laugh so hard you cry. And sometimes it just makes you cry.
If one thing became entirely clear in 2014, it’s that traditional descriptors like “sit-com” are so last century. Defining what makes a small screen laffer is no longer cut and dry. Digital platforms like Netflix and Amazon are following in the footsteps of industry innovators like HBO and Showtime and shattering the barrier between drama and comedy — and the obvious winner in this genre revolution is the viewing audience.
That doesn’t mean there aren’t great examples of the classic multi-camera comedy format still on the air (our list includes two of them), or that trendy single camera shows can’t be non-stop joke machines (we’d argue both “Veep” and “Silicon Valley” place laughs over pathos in every episode). But let’s also thank the shows pushing the envelope to make TV comedy a riskier, »

Mark Hamill was a little worried about sighing on to Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas. "I was nervous involving myself in this," the Star Wars legend tells me. "How can they ever top the movie? But with the animation and the songs from the Broadway show, it's like it's own animal now." This new animated adaptation (premiering tonight at 8 p.m. on NBC) stars Jim Parsons as Buddy, the role originally played by Will Ferrell in the 2003 movie. Ed Asner returns as Santa with The Big Bang Theory actress Kate Micucci as Jovie. Rounding out the voice cast are Jay Leno, Matt Lauer, Gilbert Gottfried, Fred Armisen and Steve Higgins. Hamill plays Walter Hobbs. "The most »

This year's Christmas episode from The Big Bang Theory is sweet and sentimental. Here's Caroline's review...
This review contains spoilers.
8.11 The Clean Room Infiltration
Now that big 'I love you' is out of the box, The Big Bang Theory just can't put it back. This episode, a Christmas one where a certain amount of sentimentality is not only allowed by welcomed, left you with little lasting memory other than the warm glow of Sheldon and Amy's growing romance, and just how important it has become to the show's DNA.
The Big Bang Theory usually does really well at holiday episodes, with so much both sadness and familial bonding inherent to occasions such as Christmas and, whereas past holidays consisted of the four guys (and Penny) making the most of their little makeshift unit, now the friendship group has evolved into a proper little family where it doesn't seem at all »
Using stop-motion animation to cleverly create the feel of a holiday-special throwback, “Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas” — derived from the Will Ferrell movie and subsequent musical — turns out to be a whole lot of fun, proving yet again it’s hard to go wrong casting Jim Parsons in pretty much anything. Retelling the movie’s story with an assortment of songs from the musical, the one-hour special straddles that line between holiday cheer and irreverence, buoyed in part by a giddy, goofy look that nicely dovetails with Parsons’ take on the title character.
Designed to resemble one of those old Rankin/Bass productions, Buddy’s tale — as the human child inadvertently taken in by elves and raised in the North Pole — is narrated by Santa Claus (voiced by Ed Asner), racing through that backstory to get to the current one, in which Buddy travels to New York City and »

10. The Leftovers
There have been a number of new and returning shows that have enthralled, horrified, excited, and caused numerous other emotional reactions among the viewing public. However no show, new or old, has left an impression as deep as that of HBO’s The Leftovers. While the series’ 10 episode first season ended its run in early September, its impact has lasted much longer, making it a strong entry in the list of the best shows of 2014.
The key strength of The Leftovers is its seeming disinterest in what caused the event at the center of the show. The series’ decision to focus on the effect rather than the cause not only sets it apart from nearly everything else on television, it also helps develop the show’s wide swath of characters. In addition, putting the disastrous event as the backdrop, rather than at the forefront, allows the audience to »
There's certainly no chance of The Big Bang Theory being cancelled any time soon. The very popular sitcom's already been renewed through season 10. Will season eight be the series' biggest or worst season yet? Stay tuned.
The Big Bang Theory revolves around a group of geeky scientists, their friends and significant others. The castmembers are Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Melissa Rauch, and Mayim Bialik.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

Though NFL preemptions in St. Louis and Phoenix may prompt some adjustments to CBS' Fast National ratings from Thursday, the network still easily won the night — thanks to the return of The Big Bang Theory. Back with an original episode after two weeks off, the comedy averaged a steady 4.0 rating among adults 18-49. The lead-in boosted all subsequent offerings, with Mom (2.8 adults) rising eight-tenths of a point. Two and a Half Men (2.5 adults), now set for a February finale, improved six-tenths of a point, and The McCarthys (1.8 adults)

On a night when its rivals struggled, CBS easily won Thursday’s primetime ratings race behind “The Big Bang Theory.” There wasn’t a lot else going on last night, but CW’s “Reign” matched its season high with its fall finale and Fox’s “Gracepoint” picked up some viewers as it wrapped.
Ratings for CBS are subject to change in the nationals due to pre-emptions for the NFL game in both Phoenix and St. Louis, but in the prelims “The Big Bang Theory” (4.0/14 in 18-49, 15.8 million viewers overall) was easily the night’s No. 1 show. It was followed by “Mom” (2.8/9 in 18-49, 11.5 million viewers overall), “Two and a Half Men” (2.5/8 in 18-49, 10.0 million viewers overall), “The McCarthys” (1.8/5 in 18-49, 7.7 million viewers overall) and “Elementary” (1.6/5 in 18-49, 8.2 million viewers overall).
It’s hard to get a read on these performances, but “Big Bang” appears to be at or near a season low, »

Fast National ratings for Thursday, December 11, 2014. With "The Big Bang Theory" leading the way, CBS won every second of primetime in basically every key measure on Thursday. Or course, CBS also had the Thursday Night Football preemptions in both St. Louis and Phoenix, but the network will still have won Thursday regardless. There were few other notables on a slow Thursday. "Gracepoint" got a very tiny overall bump for its finale, while Fox's "Bones" was actually down 20 percent in its 200th episode. "Bad Judge," "A to Z," "Vampire Diaries" and "Reign" were up by a negligible 0.1 over either their last Fast National or Live total. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 2.4 rating for Thursday night, rather far ahead of the 1.0 rating for NBC and Fox in the key demographic. ABC and The CW both averaged a 0.7 key demo rating. Overall, CBS averaged an estimated 10.25 million viewers »
