'The Mentalist' Renewed By CBS

CBS has renewed its drama, 'The Mentalist' starring Simon Baker for a sixth season.

The fifth season premiered to over 11 million viewers which is a drop from the 14 million who watched the fourth season finale. However, the series has been steadily dropping viewership and has been most recently been sitting at the eight - nine million mark. It should be noted that for the majority of the season 'The Mentalist' has been delayed and has been airing at 10:30-11pm.
Here is a list of the last-five aired episodes:
14 - Red in Tooth and Claw - February 17 - 9.42 million viewers
15 - Red Lacquer Nail Polish - March 3 - 9.24 million viewers
16 - There Will Be Blood - March 10 - 9.52 million viewers
17 - Red, White and Blue - March 17 - 9.98 million viewers
18 - Behind the Red Curtain - March 24 - 8.00 million viewers

The season four finale will air in late May. No word on how many episodes have been ordered for season five but the usual 22 seems right.
