It is not last year’s bloodbath when CBS canceled seven series, but the network did some bloodletting today with the demise of freshmen The Defenders, $#*! My Dad Says and Mad Love. They join midseason drama Chaos, which was canceled after a couple of weeks on the air. From the freshman class of 2011, still fighting for its life is spinoff Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, while Mike & Molly, Hawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods are locks to return. Not being featured on the cancellation list today is certainly an encouraging sign for the chances of Suspect Behavior, which may undergo some retooling if renewed.
