As previously reported, the three series in the CSI franchise all earn new seasons, all staying put in their established timeslots. Also back are Criminal Minds, The Unit, Cold Case, Ghost Whisperer, NCIS, Numb3rs and Survivor.
Veteran reality series The Amazing Race has been given one more cycle, with a return expected at midseason alongside comedy The New Adventures Of Old Christine, which has a reduced order of thirteen episodes.
The Monday night comedy block remains virtually intact, with newcomer The Big Bang Theory replacing Christine at 8.30pm.
Without A Trace moves to Thursdays at 10pm, while Shark switches to Sundays at 10pm.
Three new dramas come in the form of Viva Laughlin, based on the BBC's Viva Blackpool; Cane, starring Jimmy Smits as the head of a Cuban-American power family in Florida; and Moonlight, about a vampire private investigator. Swingtown, a racy wife-swapping drama set in the '70s, has been earmarked for midseason.
Shows failing to make the grade include apocalyptic drama Jericho, David Crane comedy The Class and Jerry Bruckheimer's Close To Home.
"We approached our development this year with a specific goal in mind - to be daring and different," said Nina Tassler, president of CBS Entertainment. "The Fall and mid-season series we have selected offer creativity and variety with great potential to excite and surprise television audiences everywhere."
