CBS today announced renewals for eighteen primetime shows, including Two and a Half Men. Other shows renewed include fellow Chuck Lorre sitcoms Mom and Mike & Molly, along with The Big Bang Theory which received a three-year renewal yesterday.
With its twelfth season now assured, Two and a Half Men is the longest-running sitcom for decades. The show will now run longer than Cheers, Frasier, M*A*S*H and Happy Days, among others, which ran for eleven seasons.
According to reports from Deadline.com, Two and a Half Men may be returning for a shorter final season. However, Deadline stresses CBS's options are still open, especially given the recent uptick in Two and a Half Men's ratings in its new 9pm slot.
