With the CBS Upfront Presentation next week, you know that cancellations and renewals are around the corner. Six more dramas have just been renewed but what’s still on the bubble at CBS?

CBS is getting ready for it’s Upfront Presentation next week. That means making final decisions on cancellations and renewals. It’s the good news first — sometimes I wish networks would lead with the bad — and six dramas have been renewed for the 2019-2020 season. I’ll be honest and say a few of these surprise me.

We’ve already reported that SEAL Team has been picked up for a third season. Fellow sophomore show S.W.A.T. has also been renewed ahead of its final. The other four dramas are BullMadam Secretary, Hawaii Five-0, and MacGyver, CBS announced in a press release.

That means the whole Friday night and Sunday night fall lineup have been renewed. The other nights not so much.

Along with the drama renewals, 60 Minutes and 48 Hours were also picked up for new seasons. So, what remains on the bubble?

Out of the dramas, there are only three CBS shows still on the bubble. The Code and The Red Line are the two freshman shows that just haven’t picked up in the way other shows have. Ransom is the third drama on the bubble. While it’s the lowest rated, it’s also the only Saturday night drama, which gives it a chance of survival.

The comedies are where we’re waiting on most of the announcements. Fam, Man with a PlanLife in PiecesHappy Together, and Murphy Brown await decisions. Out of the six, we should see the first two renewed. I’m on the fence about Life in Pieces but it’s performing well for a midseason comedy. Happy Together and Murphy Brown are the only two freshmen shows from the fall season without a renewal or an extended season order, so they will likely be canceled.

When it comes to the unscripted shows, only The Amazing Race has been renewed according to TV Series Finale, but I doubt we’ll be waiting long to hear about Survivor being picked up again.
