CBS ANNOUNCES SCHEDULE FOR REST OF THIS SEASON – PERSON OF INTEREST CANCELLED

CBS ANNOUNCES SCHEDULE FOR REST OF THIS SEASON
PERSON OF INTEREST CANCELLED

It was widely expected that the writing was on the wall for ‘Person Of Interest’ this season as it was a non CBS owned show and just like cancelled ‘Mike & Molly’ produced by Warner Bros (WB) TV studios which means that the network doesn’t receive any of the shows profits.
To sum up unless the show is as big as ‘Big Bang Theory’ & ‘Modern Family’ if it’s a toss up between a network owned product and one licensed from an external studio then the network series will get the heads up over the studio one. An example from last season was ABC owned ‘American Crime’ receiving the re-up over WB TV’s ‘Forever’ even though both shows had similar ratings.

Here’s the press release from CBS:
CBS Announces Finale Dates, Return Dates and Special Events
The Series Finale of “The Good Wife” on Sunday, May 8 is Joined by the Season Finales of “Madam Secretary” and “Elementary”

      1. So so sorry! I erm disappeared for a few days again. Re: Limitless no news on any of the CBS new series so far, CBS boss Les Moonves has hinted that 5 new series are likely to be renewed.
        Looking good for Limitless. I’ll update as soon as it’s confirmed.
