American network CBS has gone on a spring cleaning rampage, culling seven shows for the upcoming season.

The network has cancelled several big-name shows which appear in primetime slots in New Zealand as it makes room for new projects for the upcoming American summer.

Headlining the list of cancellations is drama series Cold Case, which has faded in the ratings in recent seasons according to the network. The show has run for seven seasons in total.

Jennifer Love Hewitt vehicle Ghost Whisperer has also been axed despite the show performing relatively well overseas.

Despite rumours it may be saved by fellow network ABC, The New Adventure of Old Christine will also finish its run.

The other shows on the scrap heap are Numb3rs, Gary Unmarried, Miami Medical and Accidentally on Purpose.

But there was good news coming from CBS HQ as well with news that Rules of Engagement and Medium have been renewed by the network for another season.

Also, CBS has just announced a new series involving William Shatner which will centre on a real life Twitter page featuring the ramblings of a retired doctor.

    Although I dont watch Gary Unmarried or New adventures of old christine they still manage to rate higher than shows such as 30 Rock or parks and recreation yet they are renewed, must be because they are on NBC.
