Two more freshman series will be sticking around for a while: CBS has ordered full seasons for its top two new dramas, “Unforgettable” and “Person of Interest.”

“Unforgettable” is the crime procedural starring Poppy Montgomery as a super sluether with an unbeatable memory that ranks as the most watched new drama this fall with 14 million viewers and a 4.2/10 in adults 25-54 demo (airs Tuesdays at 10/9c). “Person of Interest” is the Jim Caviezel-Michael Emerson mystery series (Thursdays at 9/8c) that’s right on par with “Unforgettable” in the ratings with an average of 13.97 million viewers and a 4.6/11 in adults 25-54.

As previously reported, the breakout comedy “2 Broke Girls” was quickly renewed earlier this season, while the sitcom flop “How to Be a Gentleman” was quickly canceled. That leaves just the fate of “A Gifted Man” hanging in the balance. The Patrick Wilson doctor-sees-dead people drama has been doing fair ratings in the Friday-night, ahem, graveyard time slot.
