CBS is doubling down on a few of its hottest collection.
The community on Thursday picked up Blue Bloods Season 12, S.W.A.T. Season 5, Magnum P.I. Season 4, and Bull Season 6.
Out of these renewals, Bull and Magnum P.I. appeared the most probably.
Blue Bloods is at present averaging 6.Four million viewers and a 0.5 ranking — down double digits year-to-year.
However most reveals are down and it stays a strong choice on Fridays. The one factor that may have held up a renewal is the age of the collection.
Collection get dearer as they age, but it surely’s good to know that extra episodes are on the best way for the followers who’ve watched for over a decade.
As for Magnum P.I., it has held up properly this season, averaging 5.7 million viewers and a 0.5 ranking, so renewal was by no means out of the query.
The regarding information not too long ago was that MacGyver had been canceled after 5 seasons, regardless of pulling in 18-49 demo rankings on par with its fellow Friday CBS dramas.
Bull has misplaced an enormous chunk of viewers this season (5 million viewers/0.Four ranking), however its demo tally is similar to at least one yr earlier, seemingly fueling the renewal.
S.W.A.T. is the shocker right here. It’s averaging 3.2 million viewers and a 0.Four ranking — logging a whole lot of collection lows this yr.
However the collection should be making an honest sum of money for the community to snag a renewal regardless of the gentle on-air outcomes.
Now greater than ever, the networks are different methods to monetize their reveals. Dwell rankings are dropping. Onerous.
The community additionally renewed NCIS on Thursday. That collection was in limbo because of contract negotiations with Mark Harmon.
Despite the fact that it is renewed, his function is unclear going ahead, with it being seemingly he’ll go part-time after mulling a everlasting exit.
All Rise, B Constructive, Clarice, NCIS: Los Angeles, SEAL Staff, The Unicorn, and United States of Al stay on the bubble.
Of these reveals, NCIS: Los Angeles and SEAL Staff stand the perfect shot at one other season.
