CBS' Unforgettable and Person of Interest Snag Full-Season Pickups

CBS has handed out full-season pickups to rookie dramas Unforgettable and Person of Interest.

The Poppy Montgomery-fronted Unforgettable has been consistently winning its Tuesday-at-10 pm timeslot with an average of 14 million viewers. Interest, meanwhile, has been holding its own in the ultra-competitive Thursday-at-9 timeslot. Season to date, it has averaged just under 14 million viewers.

For those keeping score at home, Unforgettable and Person of Interest join fellow CBS rookie 2 Broke Girls, ABC’s Revenge and Suburgatory, The CW’s Hart of Dixie, Secret Circle and Ringer, Fox’s New Girl and NBC’s Up All Night and Whitney, in this fall’s full-season club.

    I gave up on Person of Interest, but excited for Unforgettable :)

    • Olivia says:

      I agree, I couldnt get through the first episode of Person of Interest. But I really liked Unforgettable, so good news for that!

  2. Joe C says:

    yayyy for Person of Interest!!!

  3. KMG says:

    Great news! Really enjoying both of these shows, especially Unforgettable. Glad to see more of Poppy!

  4. Could we get an idea of what hasn’t been picked up? Have they all gotten full seasons? (Excluding the ones that were already ousted)

  5. Dessy says:

    Person of Interest Yay! I’m really starting to get into it.

  6. rod says:

    please CBS, A Gifted Man needs to be the next show picked up, make it happen

  7. Dee says:


    Love both shows, especially Person of Interest.

    Need more of a backstory on Emerson’s character, though.

  8. MJ says:

    FINALLY!!! Love both of these shows!!

    Only ones left now are Last Man Standing and Once Upon a Time.

  9. Sarah says:

    Yaaaay for Unforgettable! Love this show, love Ppoppy!

  10. JohnDoe says:

    Person of Interest is turning into a great show. Love the Finch and Reese dynamic. And it’s nice to have a show take over for 24 with a character that kicks a lot of ass.

  11. Tikkanen says:

    Yay, thank you CBS for renewing Person of Interest.

  12. kevin says:

    PERSON OF INTEREST truly deserve for a full season pick up but UNFORGETTABLE still the worst crime drama I’ve ever seen in years. CBS did forgot to mention on the fate of GIFTED MAN ’cause the Patrick Wilson-led series isn’t doing good on Fridays and I hope it won’t last that long or perhaps for one season tops.

  13. claire says:

    Found Unforgettable forgettable (could not pass that up, sorry) but YEY! for PI!!

  14. LC says:

    Maybe this means that Person of Interest will FINALLY be put up on iTunes??? I don’t get the delays this year. They took their sweet a$$ time getting Fringe up and when people asked what was going on, iTunes and Fox just kept blaming it on each other.

  15. eridapo says:

    Good for POI…. Unforgetable, drop the “un” and you have what I think of that show

  16. GK says:

    Person of Interest!! Hell Yeah!!

  17. aaron says:

    I love Unforgettable so far and Person of Interest is pretty good. Glad to see both were picked up!!!

  18. Barb says:

    Two shows I actually watch regularly and they’ve been given a full season – amazing but great news.

  19. Eliza says:

    I have yet to check either of these shows out. Maybe I’ll get around to it since they have been given full-season orders.

    In the meantime, CBS, can you please give A Gifted Man a full-season pickup?! Pretty please with sugar on top :) I love seeing Patrick Wilson every week and I’m enjoying the show!

  20. Lorie says:

    Yay for both shows!

  21. Lisa says:

    I don’t watch either of these shows and never plan to.

  22. Justin says:

    Great news! I watch and really like both shows.

  23. Mellie says:

    Darn, I held a little hope that, while I enjoyed it, PoI wouldn’t last so Emerson and O’Quinn could get a show going together d:

  24. Kristina says:

    Yay! Love Person of Interest :) Might have to check out Unforgettable now too.

  25. Samantha says:

    I stopped watching POI. As much as I love Memmerson I just wasn’t interested enough. Plus I’m not a huge fan of Jim Caviezel.

  26. Michelle says:

    I am so happy that Person of Interest got a full season pickup. I cannot get into Unforgettable.

  27. Renee says:

    YES!!! Best news I’ve had all month! LOVE Person Of Interest and my TV track record isn’t that good.

  28. kirads09 says:

    Yes for Person of Interest! I am loving that show!

  29. Doug-H says:

    I guess I must be odd in that my 10pm Tuesday TV watching includes Parenthood and Body of Proof even though both are available On Demand.. For some reason, Unforgettable is not available ON Demand ( though it is available Online on… Since Parenthood was off last night, I tried Unforgettable and don’t regret skipping it even though I love looking at Poppy… I guess there’s some sort of backstory going on but darn if I know what it is…

  30. iced says:

    I love Person of Interest, great news.

  31. Frank W says:

    More PC BS which is true of almost everything on TV these days. Too bad they couldn’t stick to entertainment rather than indoctrination with liberal dogma.

  32. RC says:

    I love Person of Interest, Jim Caviezel is great.

  33. Sandy says:

    I love Unforgettable, but I can’t find it on demand – why not?????

  34. stacie says:

    I’m excited! I love love love both of these
    shows! I agree a gifted man should be next!

  35. nathan says:

    Congrats to Ed Redlich – a good guy!

  36. Kathleen says:

    I’m so glad you’re keeping both shows’ I love them both!

  37. I liked unforgettable I thought it was a good story line.
    glad to see it back.
