CBS’ Upfronts aren’t until Wednesday, but the axe fell and fell often today.  A total of seven shows got Highlandered.  These include the following (via’s Live Feed):

  • Cold Case
  • Ghost Numbers
  • Numb3rs
  • Miami Medical
  • Accidentally On Purpose
  • The New Adventures of Old Christine
  • Gary Unmarried

Medium and Rules of Engagement were picked up, the former of which seems to have more lives than a sack of tabbies.  Ghost Whisperer may be the biggest surprise, because it frequently won its time slot and was expected to return.  Likewise Old Christine was a reliable, if unspectacular performer.  But it may get a reprieve from ABC, which has expressed possible interest. 

I watched Cold Case and although it was a procedural, I liked its format.  The ratings just no longer justified the expense, and this wasn’t unexpected.  Numb3rs going bye-bye wasn’t a surprise.
