The tragic Friday events of Paris’ terrorist attacks made impact on a number of TV series, including SNL’s sympathetic cold open, while CBS will next alter its programming out of respect. Both Supergirl and NCIS: LA will shuffle their episode orders, the Monday episodes of which featured content disturbingly similar to the awful attacks.
It’s only Monday, meaning if you’re already tired of the many 2015 Upfront renewals, cancellations and pickups, CBS is not for you. The eye network has given pickup orders to over a dozen of its existing series, including The Good Wife, Elementary, The Odd Couple, and telling move for CSI’s Cyber spinoff.
HBO surprised the TV world yesterday with the announcement of a standalone streaming option for the reclusive network, but it isn't the only TV giant looking to secure a streaming future. CBS has announced (and launched) its own pay-service to give non-cable users access to their library of content, calling the new innovation "CBS Access."
Among the last, but certainly not least, the eye network CBS has officially gotten in on the Upfront 2014 game by releasing their schedule for the fall, and full trailers for the newest series. Few major surprises (minus that 'How I Met Your Dad' pass), but take a look at the future of CBS with new trailers for Halle Berry's 'Extant,' sporting family sitcom 'The McCarthys' and more!
Moving right along the major network pantheon, CBS is the latest to give out its lineup for fall 2013-2014 in advance of today's big Upfront presentation. No major shakeups, other than an expanded comedy block on Thursday nights and moves for both 'Person of Interest' and 'Hawaii Five-0,' but Chuck Lorre's 'Mike & Molly' will sit the fall out, while still producing a full season.

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!
Because what's the point in starting an original franchise anymore? That attitude has done CBS many a 'CSI' spin-off in the past, and it doesn't seem the Eye is changing its tactics anytime soon. Despite being a spin-off itself, 'NCIS: Los Angeles' will reportedly introduce a possible spin-off series, to be presented as a backdoor pilot in an upcoming two-part episode. But what new group of crime-fighters would the potential spin-off follow?
