The network has renewed all five of its freshman shows: “Hawaii Five-O,” “Mike and Molly,” “Blue Bloods,” “The Defenders,” and the Twitter-launched comedy “$#*! My Dad Says.”
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the passing grades were well-earned, with each show holding their own in the ratings race in their respective time slots.
To put some icing on the cake, CBS as a whole has been strong at the start of the fall TV season, putting the network in first place for the first month, THR reports.
Yet perhaps the celebratory news should be tempered with a few words of caution: While all of the shows are performing well, none of them have really shown to be insta-hits in the same way Fox’s “Glee” was, points out CBS News.
