Numb3rs

American network CBS has gone on the rampage, culling seven shows from its line-up for the next season.

The network has cancelled several big-name shows as it makes room for new projects for the upcoming American summer.

Headlining the list of cancellations is drama series Cold Case, which has faded in the ratings in recent seasons. The show has run for seven seasons in total.

Jennifer Love Hewitt vehicle Ghost Whisperer has also been axed despite the show performing well for the network on Friday nights.

Despite rumours it may be saved by ABC, The New Adventure of Old Christine will also finish its run on CBS.

The other shows on the scrap heap are Numb3rs, Gary Unmarried, Miami Medical and Accidentally on Purpose.

But there was good news coming from CBS HQ as well with news that Rules of Engagement and Medium have been renewed by the network for another season.

Numb3rs executive producer Don McGill will join CSI after signing a new deal.

McGill has put pen to paper and will work with CSI: Crime Scene Investigation with producer Carol Mendelsohn for at least two years. His seven-figure contract includes a development component as well at CBS.

He joins the show following the recent departure of ex-CSI exec producer Naren Shankar.

The future of Numb3rs however, is unclear with no word yet as to whether the drama will be renewed for a seventh season.
