CBS announced that 12 of its prime-time series will return in the fall. The network’s entire Monday night schedule of comedies and its three newsmagazines were included in the early renewal announcement. The shows that will definitely return are “Cosby,” “King of Queens,” “Everybody Loves Raymond,” “Becker,” “JAG,” “60 Minutes,” “60 Minutes II,” “Touched By an Angel,” “Kids Say the Darndest Things,” “Nash Bridges,” “48 Hours” and “Candid Camera.” Other existing shows will probably join them on the renewal list, but CBS can’t announce them yet for contractual reasons. The early announcement was made so CBS could start selling advertising.

  • So far, NBC has said that seven of its shows will definitely return next fall: “ER,” “Frasier,” “Friends,” “Dateline NBC,” “Just Shoot Me, “Law and Order” and “3rd Rock From the Sun.” Fox has already renewed “The PJ’s,” “That ’70s Show” and “Beverly Hills 90210.” ABC, the WB and UPN have not announced any series renewals for next year.
