CBS has announced it will be renewing The Big Bang Theory for another season, along with 10 others - albeit with a couple of conspicuous absences. Missing from the list, for the moment, are the newbie Moonlight, Rules of Engagement and The New Adventures of Old Christine.

Joining the flood of announcements from the 'nets on what's next, CBS added to the rush with its list. The shows that did get a thumbs-up include Cold Case, Criminal Minds, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, Ghost Whisperer, NCIS, Numbers, Two and a Half Men and Without a Trace. The 11 renewals are on top of returning faves (and previously announced) Survivor and the Amazing Race.

In addition to all the great renewal news, CBS also issued a chart of when they're airing new eps of old faves. In the meantime, I'm relishing the open renewal floodgates. - Anna Dimond
