CBS renewed Hawaii Five-0 for a second seson again putting it at the 10 p.m. ET Monday time slot.
The move came despite the fact ratings had slipped in recent weeks. The show may have been hurt by the Two And a Half Men/Charlie Sheen fiasco, where the supply of new episodes of the comedy dried up because of conflicts with the now-fired star. That, in turn, lessened CBS’s audience for the programs that followed. The ratings for Five-0’s season finale on May 16 improved a bit compared to previous weeks.
In any event, Five-0’s producers can now figure out how to resolve the May 16 episode’s cliffhanger where Steve McGarrett 2.0 (Alex O’Loughlin) was framed for two murders, including the Goveror, by evil mastermind Wo Fat.
