CHICAGO – We will know the full schedule tomorrow but CBS has been revealing it by bits and pieces all week, canceling “Mad Love” & “The Defenders,” renewing “Blue Bloods” & “Hawaii Five-0,” and giving us one of each today, canceling “Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior” and giving “CSI: NY” another year.

We suspected that the network may be hesistant to cancel two franchise expansions at the same time but were still surprised that the net found room for both “CSI: NY” and “Blue Bloods.” We’ll see how it works when the full schedule is announced tomorrow.

Ultimately, it looks like our predictions were off on one bubble program per announced major network (renewing “Brothers & Sisters” &CSI: NY” and canceling “The Chicago Code”), except for NBC, which we nailed 100%. We’ll see what happens at The CW (where we predicted “One Tree Hill” & “Nikita” would be saved and “Hellcats” would be canceled).

“Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior” started strong but fell quickly, largely due to the fact that it was really not very good. The numbers for “CSI: NY” represented the slow erosion that often comes with older shows, but they were good enough for another year of DNA-based mysteries.

Stay tuned to as we get closer to the finish line of this crazy TV season. content director Brian Tallerico
