CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler says, “This large-scale renewal is testimony to the strength, stability and success of a deep and diverse roster of top-rated programming. It positions us for continued success next season and certainly creates an environment that will give our new shows the best possible chance to succeed.”

Two and a Half Men is listed as one of the shows that was not given the early renewal, since the network is in “preliminary discussions” with Warner Bros. Television about more seasons. A new deal with Ashton Kutcher has yet to be signed.

The shows that have not been given the early renewal notification are:

Two and a Half Men

  1. As much as I love Unforgettable and CSI:NY I wouldn’t be surprised if they weren’t renewed. From everything I’ve read online the ratings aren’t that good. I still have hope though.
