CBS backs 'Numb3rs' and comedies, hacks three dramas

Davidkrumholtz_numb3rs_290 As CBS approaches its upfront, the fate of a few more shows have been determined.

Returning to the network are Friday's math/crime procedural "Numb3rs" and a trio of comedies: "The New Adventures of Old Christine," "Rules of Engagement" and "Gary Unmarried."

They join the previously announced "Cold Case," which was on the bubble with "Without a Trace," which unfortunately has not fared well. The latter series has been given the boot along with "The Unit" and scientific drama "Eleventh Hour."

Some new names include "Three Rivers," "Accidentally on Purpose," "The Good Wife" and the "NCIS" spinoff. CBS is also eying the NBC-canceled "Medium."

The fate of the remaining shows, including a full fall schedule will be announced Wednesday. Check Zap2it for details.
