Good news for two of CBS' new dramas: the network has ordered full seasons of both "Unforgettable" and "Person of Interest." 

"Unforgettable" stars Poppy Montgomery as a New York cop with hyperthymesia, a rare condition that causes her to remember literally everything. The series is averaging 14 million viewers and a 4.2 rating among adults 25-54 each week, an improvement on Tuesday nights compared to CBS's ratings last year.

The J.J. Abrams- and Jonathan Nolan-produced "Person of Interest" features "Lost" star  Michael Emerson as a genius billionaire inventor who hires a former CIA agent ( Jim Caviezel) to help stop the crimes that he knows will happen thanks to a device he invented. "Person of Interest" has averaged nearly 14 million viewers and a 4.6 rating in the 25-54 demo in its Thursday night time slot.

CBS already gave a full-season order to freshman comedy "2 Broke Girls" and canceled "How to Be a Gentleman," leaving the Patrick Wilson-starring "A Gifted Man" still awaiting its fate.
