While other networks cancel shows or make decisions about which series should get new episodes, CBS has a very different experience right now: It’s just given full season orders to all of its new 2010 shows.
According to The Wrap, all five of the networks’ new series – Hawaii Five-O, Blue Bloods, Mike & Molly, The Defenders and, yes, even $#*! My Dad Says – have been given the go-ahead to complete their first seasons, thanks to high ratings and a confident network. For all the jokes and complaints about CBS’ conservative programming, there’s no denying that it certainly knows what works. Maybe NBC should take a leaf out of their book.
