NEW YORK — Top-rated CBS has renewed 18 more of its prime-time series for next season.

These pickups come on the heels of previous announcements that "The Big Bang Theory" and "Survivor" will be back.

Nine dramas winning a return include "NCIS," ''NCIS: Los Angeles," ''Person of Interest," ''CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," ''Hawaii Five-O" and "Blue Bloods," as well as "Criminal Minds," ''Elementary" and "The Good Wife."

Renewed comedies include "2 Broke Girls," ''Two and a Half Men" and "Mike & Molly," plus freshmen sitcoms "The Millers" and "Mom."

"The Amazing Race," ''Undercover Boss," ''60 Minutes" and "48 Hours" will also return.

These renewals add up to 17 hours of weekly programming getting the nod to return.

Still to be decided is the fate of "Hostages," ''Intelligence" and "The Crazy Ones."
