CBS Chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves, speaking Tuesday morning at the Deutsche Bank Media and Telecom conference in Palm Beach, Fla., predicted the network will bring back five or six of this season’s freshman shows, Variety reports.

“Out of the 17 pilots ordered for next season, Moonves predicted the Eye will pickup four new series — two comedies and two dramas — although he emphasized that could change depending on how the completed pilots come in,” Variety adds.

Moonves also said CBS is on the “two-yard line” in terms of closing a deal for a two-season renewal of “The Big Bang Theory,” the story reports, and suggested that the lead-out from “Big Bang” will be the new spinoff from the show, focusing on Sheldon as a child.
