CBS announce their Fall Line up and the shows they were cancelling and keeping. First the cancellations.

“[Bleep] My Dad Says”, “The Defenders”, “Mad Love” and the “Criminal Minds” spin-off “Suspect Behavior”.

Now the shows they ARE bringing back include:

“NCIS”, “NCIS:  Los Angeles”, “The Mentalist”, “Hawaii Five-0″, “Criminal Minds”, “CSI”, “CSI: Miami”, “CSI: New York”, “Blue Bloods”, “The Good Wife”, “60 Minutes”, “Survivor”, “The Amazing Race” , “”The Big Bang Theory”, “How I Met Your Mother”, “Rules of Engagement”, “Mike & Molly”, and of course “Two and a Half Men” . . . with ASHTON KUTCHER!

CBS revealed their plans yesterday, which include six new shows . . . four dramas and two sitcoms.  Here’s a quick rundown of the new stuff:

“Unforgettable”:  A police drama starring former “Without a Trace” minx Poppy Montgomery as a detective, who has “a rare condition that makes her memory so flawless that every place, every conversation . . . is forever embedded in her mind.”

“Person of Interest”:  A crime thriller . . . no surprise there . . . about a former CIA agent, who’s presumed dead, and then teams up with a mysterious billionaire to “prevent violent crimes by using their own brand of vigilante justice. Michael Emerson, who played Ben on “Lost”, is the billionaire.

“The 2-2″:  A police drama . . . notice a trend here?   Robert De Niro is one of the executive producers.

“A Gifted Man”:  A non-police drama about a “brilliant, charismatic surgeon whose life changes forever when his deceased ex-wife begins teaching him the meaning of life from the ‘hereafter.

“2 Broke Girls”:  A sitcom about two young girls who are waitresses at a diner.  One is “street-wise” and poor the other is “sophisticated” and rich.

“How to Be a Gentleman”:  A sitcom about two guys, which CBS describes as, quote, “the unlikely friendship between a traditional, refined writer and an unrefined personal trainer.”  Former “Entourage” star Kevin Dillon is the personal trainer.
