On Thursday, CBS renewals saw a total of 16 shows for the 2017-2018 season. Thirteen scripted series, two newsmagazines and one reality show were among those given a renewal.

Among the lucky shows that were given CBS renewals are veteran shows "Hawaii Five-0," "Blue Bloods," "Madam Secretary," "Life in Pieces," "Mom," "Scorpion," "NCIS: New Orleans" and "NCIS: Los Angeles." Joining the lineup of renewed shows include the latest shows namely "Kevin Can Wait," "Bull," "MacGyver," "Superior Donuts" and "Man with a Plan."

The network also renewed newsmagazine shows "48 Hours" and "60 Minutes," as well as its longest serving reality television show "Survivor," according to The Hollywood Reporter. These shows join those that have already been included in CBS renewals lineup: "NCIS" and "The Big Bang Theory." The latter has been renewed for two more seasons and its spinoff prequel featuring the main character Sheldon has been picked up.

Shows missing from the CBS renewals list include veterans "2 Broke Girls," "Elementary," "Criminal Minds" and "Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders." Other shows that are also staying in a bubble are "Code Black," "The Great Indoors," "Doubt," "Pure Genius," "Ransom," "The Odd Couple," "Training Day" and "Undercover Boss." Other shows like "Candy Crush," "Salvation," "Zoo" and "Big Brother" are expected to air over the summer.

"Doubt," the show led by former "Grey's Anatomy" star Katherine Heigl and Laverne Cox, was canceled after just two episodes. The episode count for "Pure Genius" had suffered a cut. Joel McHale's "The Great Indoors" garnered little buzz and negative reviews. "The Odd Couple's" future has been in question for quite some time. "Criminal Minds" is set to wrap up its twelfth season while "Elementary," which is now in its fifth season, has seen a decline in ratings.

Fans of the aforementioned shows need not worry. The network will announce more renewals at a later date, according to E! Online.
