Earlier in the broadcast year CBS implied on a number of occasions that their 2013-2014 lineup would remain relatively consistent given their strong performances across the board, and today that proves to be true. The indomitable eye network has announced the renewals of 18 major series, including dramas, comedies and unscripted fare, but which major series were left off the list? Find out who's in and who's out at CBS inside!
Mike & Molly
Yesterday, we were surprised (okay, not that surprised) to learn that FX had landed the rights to air repeat episodes of CBS comedy 'Mike & Molly' in late 2014, complimenting their existing ownership of CBS shows 'Two and a Half Men' and 'How I Met Your Mother.' 'Mike & Molly' doesn't exactly seem like FX's usual fare, even for a sitcom, so why did network decide to move on it? And how much did it cost?
First, there was FX's acquisition and endless replaying of past 'Two and a Half Men' episodes. Then, the network acquired the rights to air episodes of 'How I Met Your Mother' as well. Recently, we've seen the debut of FX's new three-camera Charlie Sheen sitcom 'Anger Management,' so have you noticed a trend yet? And guess which CBS sitcom is next for FX?
