CBS Cancellations & Renewals 2014: THE MENTALIST, CRAZY ONES, HOSTAGES

CBS Logo

The Mentalist, Crazy Ones, Hostages, and other TV Shows Cancelled. CBS‘s The Crazy Ones, Hostages, Friends With Better Lives, Bad Teacher, and Intelligence have all been canceled. The Mentalist has been renewed.

On Intelligence and Hostages:

The demise of Intelligence and the long-forgotten Hostages was fully expected as neither made a mark in the Monday 10 PM time slot though there was some argument made about procedural Intelligence.

On Bad Teacher:

For Bad Teacher, the cancellation comes only three episodes into its run. The comedy, based on the hit movie, exceeded ratings expectations in its debut but dropped off in Episodes 2 and 3.

On The Crazy Ones:

For The Crazy Ones, the single-camera comedy never quite fit into CBS’ multi-camera-dominated Thursday comedy block.

On The Mentalist:

After sitting heavily on the bubble for the first time, in grave danger of cancellation, the veteran drama has gotten a reprieve with an eleventh-hour renewal…CBS does not specify the size of the order but I hear it is likely for a 13-episode seventh and final season…in its current sixth season, Mentalist has averaged of more than 11 million viewers and a 2.1 rating among adults 18-49, outrating in the demo its Sunday night lead-in The Good Wife, which has been renewed
