CBS also announced it will be adding "CSI: Detroit", "CSI: Omaha", "CSI: Survivor", and "CSI: Criminal Minds Without a Cold Case" to the fall lineup.

Renew "The Unit" or there will be more than peanuts showing up at CBS Headquarters!

Just thought I'd mention that it is not "Rules of Attraction" but "Rules of Engagement".

They should do a CSI: Texas, they've got the west coast and the east coast covered, why not move to the center of the US?

Why not do a CSI: LA. There's always someone found stiff and stinkin' in an alley in the City of Angels.

"The Unit...[is] being brought back into production and will return in March and April for new episodes"

Source, please?

Mark - That's another typo. I was sloppy on this story. I went through CBS bubble shows in my head and initially left "The Unit" off and all of the other shows will indeed be back in production. Then I remembered "The Unit," added it to the first list and then didn't change the subsequent sentence. Nobody has any idea what's happening with The Unit...

Sorry about the confusion.

CBS must be on crack - Moonlight is great fun and has the hottest new male star on the planet. Add it to HIMYM, and you have the only CBS shows that I ever watch (with the exception of the original CSI, but only outisde of the original broadcast since it's going to be played a thousand times over the next couple of years).

WHAT NO MOONLIGHT??? I am stunned to not see Moonlight on the list of renewed shows for fall! Moonlight won the People's Choice Award for Best New Drama, the show has consistently won the coveted demographics for the Friday night 9pm time slot and it has developed a huge (and growing) dedicated fan base. All of these things have brought positive media advertisement and recognition for CBS; "the buzz is good!" CBS did make the commitment to give us four more episodes in the spring but I do have to ask, why only four? Why are we being short changed? And, I must ask again, why is CBS not latching on to this winner of a show and renewing it for a FULL second season???

They pick up the big bang theory, which is horrible, and haven't picked up How I Met Your Mother. Who is picking their shows, they need to be fired!!

They'd better be eyeing Jericho for a return, or it's more nuts for them!:-)

Really, the new shows are great. The season weeded out the schlock and turned on the suspense, and it's gotten quite believable. I really like the new approach.

Are you kidding me? How I met Your Mother is in limbo again? Hands down the funniest sitcom on tv and CBS has to make the fans sweat it out once again. Outrageous. Seriously CBS, stop your renewal shenanigans and bring back HIMYM.

Ghost Whisperer, How I Met Your Mother, and Moonlight are the only shows I watch and 2 aren't renewed yet, problem!

HIMYM is the only CBS I like at all. I don't know who these people are who have Nielsen boxes, but they need to watch better shows and less of CSI copycats.

My family and I never miss JERICHO...we LOVE it.
But, we really do miss GERALD MCRANEY.
Can't you get him to come back??????????
It's just not the same without him.
