CBS Not Renewing Criminal Minds? Renews 11 Others

Criminal Minds

For the season 2016-2017, the CBS has renewed 11 TV serials but this does not include the freshman series. However, there is no update about Criminal Minds yet.

You can now watch shows like Blue Bloods, Hawaii Five-0, Madam Secretary, Mom, NCIS: Los Angeles, NCIS: New Orleans, Survivor,The Amazing Race Elementary, Scorpion, and 2 Broke Girls, reports IGN. Already renewed TV Series include NCIS and The Big Bang Theory .

CSI: Cyber is struggling with its bad ratings and so is Criminal Minds which is yet to be decided. The most favorite show of the viewers, the Super Girl’s renewal is still a question, though it is likely to get a second season, Entertainment Weekly reports.

“We have about five new shows on this year” . “Of those five, I believe all five of them will be renewed, and we own four of them.”Les Moonves, the Chief Executive Officer of CBS earlier said to Deadline. The shows include Limitless, Code Black, Life in Pieces, Supergirl and Angel from Hell. Three of them — Limitless, Code Black and Angel from Hell are owned by CBS.

Beyond Borders, which has just premiered, is also waiting for the ratings.The fate of the undecided serials would be told in May.

Moonves  also spoke regarding filling the empty time in between the shows, he had ordered only 17 pilots. “Look at the ratings. Look at how often The Big Bang Theory is on [TBS]. It’s on almost every 20 seconds. So when they say, ‘Oh, we’re not buying as much off-network [reruns],’ that’s not exactly the truth. That marketplace is very solid,”he said.

The price of CBS has declined to 14.2% in 12 months. This has created a fear that traditional media might overrule the digital media.

Well it is the advertising agency from which the traditional media is making profit.“I haven’t seen advertising this strong in many, many years,” he says. Sales in the last two quarters of 2015, and the current quarter, have been “unbelievably strong” — which indicates to him that “you’re going to see the upfront [market] go up a lot, both in CPMs and volume,”Les Moonves added.
