The spinoff starring Forest Whitaker joins fellow newly picked-up series Hawaii Five-O, Defenders, Blue Bloods and Mike & Molly. Rumor is it would be for midseason. Meanwhile, CBS’ comedy plans beyond Mike & Molly are still unclear. Mad Love‘s chances may be hurt by lead Lizzy Caplan’s unwillingness to commit to the series. (She only did the pilot as a guest star). Mad Love‘s fate seems interconnected with Livin’ On a Prayer‘s chances for a midseason order. No word yet on Bleep My Dad Says, which is weird as the network went through the trouble of telling star Ryan Devlin he was being replaced. Dramas Chaos and the John Wells-produced Untitled Medical Drama also are reportedly still in contention for midseason.
