CBS to bring back 'Old Christine,' 'Cold Case,' 'Numb3rs' and more
Looks like lots of CBS deal-making is going on during the ABC upfront.
In addition to word that CBS may pick up a new season of "Medium" -- NBC canceled it; producers were not thrilled -- sources say the network will also renew "Cold Case," "Numb3rs," "Gary Unmarried," "Rules of Engagement" and "The New Adventures of Old Christine."
They join previously renewed scripted series "The Big Bang Theory" and "Two and a Half Men." "How I Met Your Mother" also has been renewed.
ABC would have picked up "Christine" had it been canceled by CBS. Its renewal prevents ABC from grabbing yet another sitcom from a rival network; it picked up NBC's "Scrubs" for a ninth season this week.
"Without a Trace," "The Unit" and "Eleventh Hour" are canceled.
