CBS renews 'Hawaii Five-0'

By Bloomberg News

LAST UPDATED: 10:50 a.m. HST, Mar 14, 2012

CBS has renewed “Hawaii Five-0” for another season.

The crime drama, filmed in Hawaii, is among 18 programs -- four comedies, nine dramas, three reality series and two newsmagazine shows -- that will return for the 2012-2013 television season that starts in September, New York-based CBS said today in a statement.

CBS renewed more than three-quarters of its prime-time schedule before executives in May pitch their biggest advertisers on buying commercial time ahead of next season. The network will obtain “double-digit” price increases and lead Walt Disney Co.’s ABC, Comcast Corp.’s NBC and News Corp.’s Fox in gains, Chief Executive Officer Leslie Moonves forecast March 10 at a conference at the University of California, Los Angeles.

The network is in “preliminary discussions” with Time Warner Inc.’s Warner Bros. Television studio about future seasons of “Two and a Half Men,” CBS said. Returning comedies include "The Big Bang Theory," “How I Met Your Mother,” “Two Broke Girls” and “Mike & Molly.”

CBS will also bring back dramas “NCIS” and “NCIS: Los Angeles,” said the network, which also ordered new seasons of “The Mentalist,” “Criminal Minds” and “Person of Interest.” Reality shows “The Amazing Race,” “Undercover Boss” and “Survivor” will also return.

Viewership is averaging 12 million viewers this season, a 1 percent gain from last season and more than any of its competitors, CBS said. The network ranks second to Fox in viewers ages 18 to 49, a group targeted by advertisers.

In addition to “Two and a Half Men,” CBS hasn’t determined whether to order additional seasons of “Unforgettable,” “Rob!,” “Rules of Engagement,” “A Gifted Man,” “CSI: New York” and “CSI: Miami.”
CBS, controlled by Chairman Sumner Redstone, climbed 0.5 percent to $31.48 at 2:51 p.m. in New York trading. Before today the stock had gained 15 percent this year.

Why is CBS renewing this Series? It's way way overrated. I watched about 10mins of the program, and got a headache. The Camera was moving at light speed. Kept moving back and forth to different scenes, never resting long enough for a bearing of plot and background to develop into a story. Over acting and real Cheesy punch lines. The cast is sub par, and the isle folks are so immature about the actors/actresses, like they are some kind of super human beings. Talk about Small town mentality!!! Sheesh!

ejkorvette -- this series will not be mistaken for the Sopranos you're right. But it doesn't have to-- not with what it purports to do (have a high-level, easy on the eyes and fun/action-packed to follow plot and cast), and what it results in doing for our state (giving effectively 1 hour commercials for our state each week to the rest of the world). So for that it's a success, and is to be commended. Badmouthers like you should simply go away, don't watch it if you don't like it.

Agree 100%. It's not the show, ejkorvette but what the show brings to the islands. Much needed jobs for everyone who work behind the scenes and the long term impact the show brings to the State. Don't watch if you no like...

What about "THE GOOD WIFE"? I didn't see that mentioned. That along with 5-0 and Blue Bloods have led me back to CBS.

Never mind the fast moving guys and the gun holding stance. The scenery is fantastic. If we weren't living here (one of us was born and raised in Honolulu) we would come over to visit, at least!

Lighten up everybody! It still is better than more than half the crap on EVERY network--cable or broadcast. Guaranteed CBS didn't renew it because a few Hawaii folks like looking at their island. It makes enough money for them to say "Do it again." If you don't like it don't watch it . Or...take a grain of salt and enjoy, like me, bruddah!!!

I watch it for the scenery even though the filming is oversaturated, the vegetation looks unnaturally bright. I think they make law enforcement look bad by breaking the law every week; illegal search and seizure, torturing suspects, not reading suspects their Miranda rights, stealing from the police impound, etc. I would hope a group with such distain for the law should be shut down. I still watch it, though!
