CBS likely to cancel 'The Crazy Ones', 'Intelligence' and 'The Mentalist'

Today CBS announced it will renew ‘Mom’, ‘The Millers’, ‘Two and a Half Men’, ‘Person of Interest’, ‘The Good Wife’, ‘Criminal Minds’, ‘Elementary’, ‘Blue Bloods’, ‘2 Broke Girls’, ‘Mike & Molly’, ‘NCIS’, ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’, ‘Hawaii Five-O’, ‘The Amazing Race’, ‘Undercover Boss’, ‘Survivor’, ’48 Hours’ and ’60 Minutes’. However, the network also had bad news for fans of ‘The Mentalist’, ‘The Crazy Ones’ and ‘Intelligence’: CBS hasn’t given early renewal to these series, which usually means they will be cancelled.

For the long-running series ‘The Mentalist’ it has been touch and go for a while now. This is the first time the series hasn’t been given early renewal. Of course, the fact that ‘The Mentalist’ isn’t owned by CBS will also be a considerable factor in the ultimate decision.

However, ‘The Mentalist’ is a strong player for Warner Bros TV with its lucrative syndication deal and great amount of international sales; so it can be expected that the studio will still put in considerate effort to get a seventh season. It’s not unlikely that the series will receive a renewal, especially now that the reboot of the series, without Red John, is successful. Bruno Heller, the series’ front runner, will probably move to FOX to work on his new series ‘Gotham’.

‘Hostages’ was already cancelled and the impending cancellations of ‘Intelligence’ and ‘The Crazy Ones’ don’t come as a surprise. There’s still hope for ‘Intelligence’, as the ratings were considerably better this week, but for the other two this will probably be the end. CBS already booked Dylan McDermott for another pilot, and ‘The Crazy Ones’ hasn’t done any better in its new slot on Thursday at 9.30pm.

Regarding comedies, CBS still has two series which need to premiere: ‘Friends with Better Lives’, which CBS is really betting on and has even programmed in their summer schedule, and ‘Bad Teacher’. The latter will replace ‘The Crazy Ones’ on Thursday. If things will go like last year, the series which haven’t been renewed yet will be cancelled in May. The year before that ‘CSI: NY’ and ‘Rules of Engagement’ managed to get picked up in the programming and not be cancelled. So the fans of these three shows better start saying their Hail Marys. The question that remains: will these three series return to the small screen next season, or not?
