Glad for Criminal Minds..love the show

I am surprised the other two CSI shows have been renewed. Both shows are doing well in their timeslots. Actually CSI Miami is doing better than The Good Wife and that show got renewed.

And I hope a Gifted Man gets renewed...love the show....I am sure picking up season 1 on dvd when it comes out.

I'm not surprised by CSI Miami and New York not getting picked up yet. "Doing well" your timeslot often isn't enough for CBS, CBS has higher standards than the other networks, especially since rarely do their new shows outright fail, so they can afford to cut loose shows other networks might keep around longer. CBS has squeezed all the money they can out of the CSI spinoff twins. Good Wife got renewed for two main reasons, it's getting close to the number of episodes needed for syndication, does well among rich households. Also helps that CBS CEO Les Moonves's wife Julie Chen is a fan of the show.

Yay for The Good Wife! I was a bit worried since the show has low demos, even for CBS standards. They hit a 1.7 for their last episode.

All the mags have been discussing that the other CSI's might finally cut their losses...

I love Patrick Wilson--mainly from his brilliant stage career (I saw him in the tour of Carousel), and Little Children--but just can't get into A Gifted Man.

I like the show...it doesnt hurt that they show Patrick Wilson shirtless as often as they can....hehe...but seriously I liked the show from day one.

Yeah to The good Wife and Person of Interest

I hope they let 2 1/2 men go. I was never really a fan but the show without Charlie Sheen just doesn't work IMO. And not a fan of his either.

Nope. But then, I never thought it was in the first place. Never saw all the hoopla. But in today's age of over-sensitive feelings and a need for EVERYTHING to be PC, I don't pay much attention to what the media labels as "racist". They'll find a problem with anything.

I agree. While I don't think the supporting characters are all that well written most of the time, I don't find the show racist.

The media loves racism. That's why I was surprised this show got a reaction. When the best the show's creator can do to respond is try to say oh, we're all stereotypes, and to make a weird Irish insult at a reporter, then it must be more than just the typical "PC" stuff.

Personally, I think this "racism" the media alleges with this show stems from the fact they never liked the show to begin with and critics don't like it when comedies they hate become popular (especially multi-camera ones on CBS), so to justify their hatred they call the show racist. I think this is largely a made up controversy, most tv sites I visit the comments (which are mostly supportive of the show) don't line up with the media (which mostly blast it).
