The networks officially announce their schedules for 2006-07 in May. But CBS took a big leap toward that announcement today with this announcement:
In a move that renews a large portion of television's Number One prime time lineup in one swoop, CBS announced today it has delivered full-season orders for the 2006-2007 season to 14 series representing 13 hours of programming.
The renewed series represent a deep and diverse roster of top-rated dramas, comedies, reality series and newsmagazines. The mass renewal announcement includes three new series from television's top-rated freshman class -- CRIMINAL MINDS, GHOST WHISPERER and HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER -- all of which have delivered impressive time period growth.
In addition to the freshman series, returning series receiving full season orders for 2006-2007 are 60 MINUTES, THE AMAZING RACE, COLD CASE, CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, CSI: MIAMI, CSI: NY, NCIS, NUMB3RS, SURVIVOR, TWO AND A HALF MEN and WITHOUT A TRACE.
