The CBS Network has announced pick-ups for 18 series — nine dramas, five comedies, two reality series and two news programs — for the 2014-15 season.



“The best way to launch new shows in the fall and throughout the season is to surround them with a strong and stable lineup of successful series,” said Nina Tassler, chairman of CBS Entertainment, in a statement. “The shows we’re picking up today cut across every night of the week and feature genre leaders, time-period winners and the most-watched shows on broadcast television.”

The nine dramas picked up include "NCIS," "NCIS: Los Angeles," "Person of Interest," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Hawaii Five-0," "Blue Bloods," "Criminal Minds," "Elementary" and "The Good Wife." The renewed comedies are "2 Broke Girls," "The Millers," "Mike & Molly," "Mom" and "Two and a Half Men."

In alternative programming, the Network announced pick-ups for "The Amazing Race" and "Undercover Boss"; also renewed are the news programs "60 Minutes" and "48 Hours."

CBS previously announced a three-year broadcast deal for "The Big Bang Theory" and two more editions of the reality series "Survivor" for next season.
