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.
The Good Wife
Conflicted accounts may rule the day on Showtime's steamy marital drama 'The Affair,' but the HFPA is on board for either side. The 2015 Golden Globes have officially granted Best TV Drama to 'The Affair,' just two months after the show was granted its second season.
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."
Josh Charles left 'The Good Wife,' then went on to star in 'Bird People' (which is playing this week at the Toronto International Film Festival) as Gary, an American in Paris who suddenly quits his job after a late night panic attack. Yes, for someone like me, this is a fun parallel narrative. Oh, it's a totally fake narrative -- 'Bird People' was filmed before Charles left 'The Good Wife' -- but it's still fun. And, as even Charles admits, despite it being a completely fake narrative, it's still true. Because here we are.
Much as we might have liked 'Masters of Sex' star Lizzy Caplan to take the gold, 'The Good Wife' star Julianna Margulies tonight takes home the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series award at the 2014 Emmy Awards for her role as Alicia Florrick.
Now that 'How I Met Your Mother' spinoff 'How I Met Your Dad' seems to have fallen through, the CBS lineup looks a little bereft of anything we might normally follow. And now with CBS' acquisition of Thursday Night Football, the full fall 2014 schedule looks a little jumbled with 'The Big Bang Theory' filling in for 'HIMYM' Mondays, while 'Elementary' and others move to October to accommodate football.
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!
Year after year, this becomes almost painfully unsurprising. Following an impressive three-season renewal for CBS comedy juggernaut 'The Big Bang Theory,' the network granted an additional 18 renewals to its drama and comedy lineup for 2014-15, including (but not limited to) 'Two and a Half Men,' '2 Broke Girls,' 'Elementary,' 'NCIS' and 'The Good Wife.' So, who's missing?
The Upfronts may have passed us by with all of the major networks unveiling their 2013-14 lineups, but CBS has jumped ahead in the 2013 race by releasing its full fall premiere schedule. The new CBS lineup will premiere after the 2013 Emmy awards, kicking off with an hour-long final season premiere for 'How I Met Your Mother,' and a host of other changes.
Earlier today we learned a few choice spoilers for the 'How I Met Your Mother' two-part season 8 finale, but it seems the CBS department had no intention of stopping there. The latest release from the eye network offers up episode descriptions for a whopping 18 upcoming series finales, including 'The Big Bang Theory,' 'Elementary,' 'How I Met Your Mother' and more, so get an inside scoop on all your favorite CBS shows' finales inside!
