person-of-interest-cancelled-renewed-second-season-cbsHere I have more info to add cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012, and today it got very busy in the renewal front, all coming from CBS that renewed a jaw dropping 18 shows to come back next season. I am reviewing one by one, fourteen of those that hadn´t been already announced as renewed previously.CBS renews Person of Interest for a second season. The freshman season started slower than it is going on now, which is the number one new drama on Broadcast TV. Not bad, and plenty of reason as to grant Person of Interest getting renewed by CBS.

What is person of interest about? Plot Synopsis

Mr. Finch (Michael Emerson), a mysterious billionaire, developed a computer program for the government that predicts terrorist threats in New York City. It was designed as a means to prevent another 9/11-type disaster, but Finch discovered that it was also predicting many “irrelevant” (non-terrorist) violent crimes. The non-terrorist data is dumped to a separate database and deleted each night. Finch realized that a great many domestic crimes could also be prevented if that data could be used. Finch built a back door into the machine that allows him to retrieve a list of Social Security numbers of people who will be involved in those crimes in order of occurrence. Unable to investigate on his own, Finch hires John Reese (Jim Caviezel), a former Green Beret and CIA field officer who is presumed dead, to help stop the crimes from taking place. Finch made the choice of only transmitting the Social Security Numbers of the persons of interest so that if the back door is discovered, the government would have no clue as to what the numbers mean, or who is acting on the data.
