CBS just announced that they renewed a whopping 15 series, but in a surprise, there’s no word yet on the fate of the veteran comedy “Two and a Half Men.”

According to Deadline, the Eye Net picked up “2 Broke Girls,” “Mike & Molly,” “Blue Bloods,” “Hawaii Five-0,” “The Good Wife,” “NCIS,” “NCIS:LA,” “Person Of Interest,” “Criminal Minds,” “CSI” and “The Mentalist.” Also renewed are “Undercover Boss,” “The Amazing Race,” “48 Hours Mystery,” and — of course! — “60 Minutes.”

These shows join “The Big Bang Theory,” “How I Met Your Mother,” and “Survivor,” which were either in the middle of multi-year deals or already renewed earlier in the season.

Why isn’t “Men” on this list as yet? Well, as Ashton Kutcher and Chuck Lorre told the audience at PaleyFest this week that everyone’s deals are up at the end of the season, and there are still talks between them, CBS, and Warner Bros. for another year. The scuttlebutt from Deadline is that Kutcher is the last holdout, which makes sense, since after saving the show from the scrap heap after Charlie Sheen was fired, is probably looking for a big payday.

Other shows that haven’t gotten the word yet are “Unforgettable,” “Rob,” “”Rules of Engagement,” “A Gifted Man,” “CSI: Miami” and “CSI: NY.”
