LOS ANGELES -

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

These pickups come on the heels of Wednesday's announcement that "The Big Bang Theory" will be back for at least 3 more years.  An announcement about "Survivor" coming back again was made earlier, also.

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.

In addition to these 18 series, CBS Wednesday announced a three-year broadcast deal for The Big Bang Theory. Previously, the Network announced two more editions of the reality series Survivor for next season.

Season-to-date, CBS is television's #1 network in viewers for the 11th time in 12 years, averaging 10.84 million viewers.

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