With CBS’ pickup for the frontrunners on the drama side, Person of Interest, and comedy side, Two Broke Girls, the next tier of contenders are rising to frontrunner status. The two locks on the hourling side seem to be ensemble cop drama ROOKIES and procedural THE REMEMBERER, with HOW TO BE A GENTLEMAN the top dog on the comedy side. I hear CBS brass are split over an early favorite, the SUSANNAH GRANT medical drama, though odds still seem to be in its favor. Meanwhile, another early favorite, PI show HAIL MARY, has been the subject of contradicting rumors over the past day or so — from “it’s a pass” to “it’s going.” But the pilot’s fortunes have definitely fallen, so it no longer seems to be a sure thing. Depending on how many comedies it brings back, CBS may pick up another comedy pilot to series, possibly PETER KNIGHT. In addition to the already renewed Big Bang, Two and a Half Men, HIMYM and sure-to-be-renewed Mike & Molly, CBS is expected to pick up veteran Rules of Engagement, with a retooled $#*! My Dad Says a (small) possibility too.
