CBS Renews ‘Flashpoint’

Sep 19, 2008  •  Post A Comment

CBS is bringing back summer drama “Flashpoint” for another season.
The network has picked up a new batch of episodes of the Canadian-produced crime drama, which proved to be a solid addition to the CBS summer schedule this year. After showing some promise on Friday nights, the network switched “Flashpoint” to “Swingtown’s” 10 p.m. Thursday slot—behind “CSI”—and saw ratings grow even more.
Canada’s CTV produces “Flashpoint” with CBS Paramount Network TV. Because of CTV’s involvement, CBS’ pricetag for the show is dramatically lower than what the network pays for a typical first-year drama.
CBS also has renewed summer staple “Big Brother” for next year. A renewal for “Swingtown,” the network’s other summer drama, is considered a long shot.

  1. Hello!! I was wondering where did you get this information from? Cause I want to read it from the actual source.

  2. Great news! 😀

  3. What… Swingtown is considered a “Long Shot” where did that information come from? CBS is making a huge mistake if they don’t renew Swingtown!!

  4. CBS is making a HUGE mistake if they don’t renew SWINGTOWN!! They can switch to Friday..like they did..but those of us who genuinely like and enjoy the show are just going to watch it on Friday. I know that’s what I did because, although i am not an avid TV watcher, this was one of the few shows that was worth turning on the TV for. It has such a no-nonsense good feeling about it. Non of this “reality” bs that they must be searching hard for. Those shows are pathetic!!
    Bring back a show that just gives the people who enjoy it something to tune into.

  5. I agree with harmony! CBS is making a huge mistake! My hubbie and I hardly watch tv and Swingtown was one of the few shows we watched and really looked forward to. It’s not because of the topic necessarily, but the character development, how they cover all aspects of age and what life experiences were about growing up then. They do a wonderful job depicting the 70’s and it is just a very well done show. Not to mention the story line kept us hooked every week! We would hate losing this show.

  6. Thanks, am very happy to read this. I like some of the actors in this show very very much & love the plot lines — an exciting entertainment.

  7. huh… well… swingtown was NOT on last week…
    i watched, waiting for it to come on… but it didn’t !!!! i guess its really not on anymore ! what a huge disappointment !!!! just when i was beginning to really get into the story line of the show… they go and cancel it ! sheesh!!
    its no different than the show ” train 48 ” that was cancelled from global. but even that show, which was made in toronto, canada…. a canadian sow lasted way longer than swingtown !!!
    i’m not sure how many ppl watched train 48… but i did, and was upset that they cancelled it.
    now here again… swingtown too.
    sheesh, what a bad decision !!!

  8. CBS sux!!! First they cancelled Jericho and now Swingtown, why waste your time with their network??

  9. Flashpoint is complete crap. It’s a cop version of “The Unit,” except without decent storylines and likeable characters. Let’s kit out some cops and have them completely take over whatever’s going on. “Oh no! The Joker’s attacked Gotham! Call the Special Response Unit!” “Help I’m innocent but I can’t get a fair trial! Call the Special Response Unit!” “Help my toilet’s clogged! Call the Special Response Unit!” I especially loved how they’re always lugging around their submachine guns, even while they’re nestled inside their super-secure command centers. Guess you should always be prepared…
    This show gets 2 thumbs way down for beig completely unrealistic and completely cliche. great Job CBS…Good thing you’re still running CSI.

  10. Andy just because you got aids watching swingtown doesn’t mean you have to dis Flashpoint. They only take over certain situations where they are needed to intervene- i.e. hostage situations. They aren’t busting drugs or tracking down rapists, that’s CSI’s job, yet you don’t complain about them doing the same thing every week. ITS THEIR JOB YOU MORON, THEY DO THE SAME THING EVERY SINGLE DAY. Sorry to resort to yelling, but sometimes it’s the only way to get through a thick head.
    At least there is action and intensity and perhaps you haven’t watched, but the characters are quite deep. But with all the swinging and what not you probably don’t have time to assess things like relationships. Well have a great day, hope your syphilis doesn’t act up too bad.

  11. durden you rock Flashpoint rules!

  12. Ok I liked Falshpoint as well! Swingtown is full of crap and very stupid!! CBS will only be making a mistake if they dont bring Flashpoint back!

  13. Flashpoint beats swingtown anyday
    that show is retarded.
    So when will flashpoint get airred again?

  14. The Medium stinks and please bring back The Unit and Flashpoint. All the reality shows make us watch THIS Movie Channel or ABC.

  15. Hello, You might want to know that your website is not showing up properly on the Palm Treo. Anyway, I’m now browsing this page on my computer, Thanks…

  16. You should give a suggestion of other posts for others and myself. I came across your site sometime last week when I was browsing, but I am not really into the blog scene. Not because I do not fancy blogs, but probably due to the fact that I’m a little behind to them.

  17. You should wite a blog post about a recommendation of blogs for people like me. I came across your site yesterday while researching, but I’m not really into the blog scene. I don’t think it’s because I don’t enjoy blogs, but probably because I’m a little behind to them.

  18. Hello, This blog is very great and easy to read. I am a huge believer of the topics blogged about. I also love reading the comments, but it seems like that most of readers need to stay on topic to try and add value to the original blog post. I would also recommend all of you to add this website to your most used website to help spread the word. Thanks…

  19. : ) for the exceptional post, jayne

  20. Rick Sanchez went down like the sucka going up against Jon Stewart – I question this is the last i will see of the boy, dude is a lot like a character from Anchorman.

  21. Yesterday, Rush used shows of Barack obama and Hillary Clingon or other Dems and then suddenly played clips from Ahmadinejad’s address and noticed that they together repeat the same things every time discussing United states and capitalism.

  22. You should consider writing a recommendation of pages for people who like this. I came across your site sometime last week when I was surfing the internet, but I am not really into the blog thing. It’s not because I do not fancy blogs, but probably due to the fact that I’m slightly slow to them.

  23. If you ever restrict oneself with self-doubt, and self-limiting assumptions, you won’t ever give you the chance to interrupt previous what you deem inconceivable.
