Hi there

There will be one thread for each network this year, so to not overflow the GMD board with countless threads that gather little interest in themselves.

You'll see in the tags what shows (passed on pilots won't be listed, as there are too many) have already learned their fate, and the number behind the thread title will be added up every time I add a new item, so you just have to remember the number to know when something new has been added. And of course, I will bump the threads when I update them.

I hope this is a better way of reporting the coming news, as last year the thread flood created some unhappy members. I still might add a dedicated thread if the news concern genre shows.

OK, here we go for CBS:

It looks like the BAU will be back for one more go-round. According to Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva, CBS has now officially renewed its veteran serial killer procedural “Criminal Minds” for a ninth season.

The renewal comes after all the stars, including A.J. Cook and Kristen Vangsness, who have been holding out to get better (read: fairer) deals. have now signed on to return to the show. Apparently, they didn’t get exactly what they wanted – the same salary as their male co-stars, but got significant pay increases.

It was bound to happen – after ordering six new series so far for fall, CBS now has to make some room for them.

That’s why, after a good nine-season run, CBS has officially canceled “CSI: New York”. The show was pulled off the brink twice in the last two years, and secured a renewal, but this time, it’s the end of the line for Mac Taylor and his team.

This leaves “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” as the only show on the air of the successful franchise, and making it the longest-running of the bunch, with getting to season 14 in the fall.


And the other CBS bubble show that was in danger of getting the axe – well, got it.

CBS has also canceled freshman drama “Vegas”.

The move to Friday nights certainly didn’t help matters, but the ratings were never stellar to begin with, and kept declining on Tuesday nights.


And then they were four.

CBS keeps whopping the axe around in its series department, also canning freshman drama “Golden Boy” - and “Rules of Engagement”, which was a powerful replacement weapon for CBS over the years.

Crazy Ones' title is clearly a riff on Mad Men, but not nearly as euphonious or clever,

Yes, but I have to say, the script was pretty good David E Kelly stuff.

I liked it too, but the numbers were never good enough.  At least it didn't  end with a cliff-hanger.

It's a shame about CSI:NY and Golden Boy, I kind of liked Golden Boy.
The longest-running science fiction series: decadent, degenerate and rotten to the core. Power-mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans... Cybermen! They're still in the nursery compared to us. Fifty years of absolute fandom. That's what it takes to be really critical.
