With few surprises, CBS, the nation's number one TV network, confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that 18 of its prime-time shows had been renewed for the 2013-2014 season, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Among the most obvious pickups were TV's top comedy and drama in the form of The Big Bang Theory and NCIS as well as other hit shows CSI and the final season of How I Met Your Mother.

Additionally, the network picked up dramas NCIS: Los Angeles, Person of Interest, Elementary, Hawaii Five-O, Blue Bloods, The Mentalist and The Good Wife.

Popular sitcoms 2 Broke Girls and Mike & Molly were also renewed by CBS.

Reality series Undercover Boss as well as long running staples Survivor and The Amazing Race were also picked up for another year alongside solid news magazines 60 Minutes and 48 Hours.

According to reports, the network repeated that CBS and Warner Brothers have entered discussions regarding a new season of Two and a Half Men and stipulated that any deal is dependent on reaching agreements with the show's star Ashton Kutcher as well as his supporting cast members.

Members of the Criminal Minds cast are also steeped in negotiations, which have also held up the network's announcement of a renewal. However, industry insiders expect both shows to return next season.

On the flipside, there are a handful of shows that reportedly are currently on the bubble and could go either way.

The longstanding CSI: New York, whose latest season ended just last month, as well as first-year crime show Vegas were not included on the pickup list released on Wednesday.

The sitcom, Rules of Engagement, was also absent from the list. The show, which has been close to the chopping block several times before may have finally run its course, according to reports.
