CBS announced today that The Mentalist has been renewed for a sixth season. While the popular drama's ratings have slipped in recent years, it continues to draw stable viewership for the network.
Today's announcement by CBS included renewals of a large portion of their primetime line-up for the 2013-2014 season. Other dramas receiving pick-ups today include The Good Wife, Elementary, Person of Interest, and NCIS: Los Angeles. Notables still awaiting news include CSI:NY, Vegas, and Criminal Minds.
UPDATE: Season 6 of The Mentalist premieres on Sunday, September 29, 2013 at 10:00pm.
I would like to see this in another time slot since anything that comes after Survivor never gets to see the end if you tape the show. I even try and tape the show after which is the news after Mentalist but for some reason with Satellite you can only get it o 11:20pm and that 20 minutes of the show you miss is just gone. I feel that Survival sucks anyway and every show that is after that show could risk loosing people if they do not get to see the end.

cbs kept putting the program during sports events or just after which would be missed do to overtime.. and those of us that set dvr or vcr recordings missed many of the programs and they were not shown on hulu or other sites.; so it is truly amazing cbs gave it another season an hip hip hooooooray for that.

I love the Mentalist. Please keep it running. I love Jane and Robin and the entire cast. It is the only intellectual series on TV and I commend CBS and look for ward to putting that channel on. You also have Elementary and Person of Interest so you are doing something right. I think Robin loves Jane and visa versa. Jane is the perfect person to play his part and he is soooo handsome.

Love the show. Great guest actors like George Wyner and David Paymer, matching Simon Baker's fine acting.

The Mentalist is one of the best shows on TV today. The only reason it has slipped in the ratings in recent years it the lousy timeslot it has been put in and especially on Sunday night.
With all the overruns on Football and Basketball it was a no show for the faithful fans which is a real disappointment when you have waited all week to watch it.
The CBS schedule team should be fired Monday and Tuesday night slots are pure gold put it back in that slot and watch the numbers fly.
