CBS Renews 18 Shows Including MacGyver Mom and Blue Bloods

In this image released by CBS, Mayim Bialik, from left, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco appear in a scene from "The Big Bang Theory". The drama series wasn't included on the list past year either but ultimately ended up coming back for Season 12.

The five renewals are among 18 shows granted new seasons by CBS this week, with others including The Big Bang Theory, Blue Bloods, Madam Secretary, NCIS and Scorpion. News programs 60 Minutes and 48 Hours also got early, unsurprising pickups, as did Survivor, its long-running reality series.

The network's annual spring tradition of picking up a variety of shows revealed that five of its freshman shows and 11 veteran shows are here to stay for at least one more season. They include "Bull", "Kevin Can Wait", "MacGyver", "Man with a Plan" and "Superior Donuts".

CBS has renewed a whopping 18 shows already for the 2017-18 season including "MacGyver", which is shot in Atlanta and stars Marietta's Lucas Till.

CBS remains the most watched network on TV even as overall viewership continues to fall across the board on broadcast television as well as cable. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.
