CBS CEO Les Moonves has expressed optimism about the renewal chances of the network’s five freshman entries — Code Black, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Life In Pieces, Limitless and Supergirl, per THR:
“We have five new shows on this year. Of those five, I believe all five of them will be renewed, and we own four of them.”
Deadline further reports:
CBS plans to renew all five of the TV shows it introduced in the current season, “and we own four of them,” CEO Les Moonves told the Deutsche Bank Media, Internet & Telecom Conference this morning.
With few holes to fill in his schedule, he only ordered 17 pilots, less than usual, for this fall and only expects to pick up “no more than four or five…We don’t need that much.”
Of course, Jane Lynch comedy Angel From Hell has already bitten the cancellation dust.
As always, the proof will be the renewal pudding. Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the official status of all CBS TV shows…
