Not to be outdone by FOX, CBS went ahead and renewed 18 more shows this week.

Having already handed out renewals to “The Big Bang Theory” and “Survivor,” the broadcast network announced new seasons of 18 other series in an official statement.

The nine dramas include “NCIS,” its spinoff “NCIS: LA,” “The Good Wife,” “CSI,” “Person of Interest,” “Blue Bloods,” “Elementary,” “Criminal Minds” and “Hawaii Five-0.

In the comedy department, CBS will bring back new comedies “The Millers” and “Mom,” along with long-running hits like “2 Broke Girls,” Two and a Half Men” and “Mike & Molly.”

Rounding things out are two reality series, “The Amazing Grace” and “Undercover Boss,” as well as “60 Minutes” and “48 Hours.”

“The best way to launch new shows in the fall and throughout the season is to surround them with a strong and stable lineup of successful series,” Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler said.

While nothing has been cancelled aside from the outgoing “How I Met Your Mother,” it will be a lot harder for shows like “The Mentalist,” “Intelligence,” “The Crazy Ones” and the network’s other midseason entries to earn a spot on the fall schedule.
