The network announced this week the addition of three new dramas and two comedies to its lineup.

In addition to the previously announced "Hawaii Five-0" remake starring Daniel Dae Kim and Alex O'Loughlin, CBS said it will air "The Defenders," a comedic drama starring Belushi and O'Connell as colorful Las Vegas defense attorneys, as well as the drama "Blue Bloods" about a family of New York cops starring Selleck and Wahlberg.

Also in the works are the Twitter-inspired comedy, "$#*! My Dad Says," starring William Shatner as a father who spouts politically incorrect observations on daily life and the romantic comedy "Mike & Molly," starring Billy Gardell and Melissa McCarthy as a cop and teacher who find love at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting.

"We believe television's No. 1 network just got stronger," Nina Tassler, president of CBS Entertainment, said in a statement this week. "New series will be launched behind proven hits and key scheduling moves will help grow nights. Two of the dramas, 'Hawaii Five-0' and 'The Defenders,' continue our successful evolution in the drama form -- character-driven with great humor. The third new drama, 'Blue Bloods,' introduces a police drama with a unique family spin. Our two new comedies will definitely make some noise. '$#*! My Dad Says' is based on a distinctly loud and funny Twitter feed -- led by a larger-than-life star in William Shatner. 'Mike & Molly' is a comedy on the romantic side, featuring the trademark humor of TV's reigning king of comedy, Chuck Lorre. And, the best news is that these new series join a schedule deep with hits and leadership in every program genre."

CBS also said 18 of its established hits will return in 2010-11. They include "Two and a Half Men,""NCIS,""Undercover Boss,""60 Minutes,""NCIS: Los Angeles,""The Big Bang Theory,""Survivor" and "The Amazing Race." Returning as well are "How I Met Your Mother,""Rules of Engagement,""The Good Wife,""Criminal Minds,""CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,""The Mentalist,""Medium,""CSI: New York,""48 Hours Mystery" and "CSI: Miami."
