CBS Renewed A Bunch Of Shows. Why 'Blue Bloods' Wasn't Among Them

We’re just a few months away from what’ll likely be a swamp of TV cancellations, with all the networks culling their content slates to coincide with weeks of season finales. CBS is known for rocking the most minimal turnover in broadcast, or perhaps all of TV, with a host of original shows that regularly last for five or more seasons. While we’ll be saying farewell to "NCIS: Los Angeles" at this season’s conclusion, the Eye network cemented the returns for most of its hit dramas that hadn’t yet received good news, with a few noteworthy exceptions: "Blue Bloods," "S.W.A.T.," and "East New York." As it turns out, updates for Tom Selleck and Donnie Wahlberg’s drama "Blue Bloods" have been delayed for a pretty important reason, which is also the case with "S.W.A.T.," albeit on a slightly smaller scale. Let’s first celebrate CBS’ big renewal wins before digging into why there are still a few holdouts.
