Renewed: Castle, Once Upon a Time, Revenge.

Canceled: Betrayal.

CBS:

New: Battlecreek — Two detectives with very different worldviews are teamed up and must answer the question: Are cynicism, guile and deception enough to clean up the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek, Mich., in the face of a complete lack of resources; or is the exact opposite true, it takes naïveté, trust and a boatload of resources; CSI: Cyber — Technology, as we know it, has amplified human behavior to the point where faceless criminals are committing crimes at global proportions with a touch of a button; NCIS: New Orleans — The New Orleans NCIS office handles cases from Pensacola through Mississippi and Louisiana to the Texas panhandle; Stalker — Psychological thriller centered around a pair of detectives who handle stalking incidents for the Threat Management Unit of the LAPD.
