CBS must be doing quite well with it’s new line-up. They announced today full season orders for all their new shows; ‘Mike and Molly’, ‘Hawaii five-0′, ‘Blue Bloods’, ‘The Defenders’, and ‘$#*! My Dad Says’.
Each of the pickups however, were most definitely earned, as all of the shows have performed very well in their time slots. CBS is reeling the viewers in this Fall, ranking in first place for the first month of the season.
CBS is very proud of their new line-up, and was hoping to be able to pick up all new shows. Ordering full seasons on all 5 of the shows does have it’s downside however, in that CBS now needs to somehow make room for their midseason shows. CBS is not ruling out reducing some of the episodes over others to make that room.
Here are the current ratings to date: Hawaii has averaged 14.2 million and a 4.1 adults 18-49 rating; Blue has averaged 12.7 million and a 2.2; Defenders 11.3 million and a 2.8; Molly 12.3 million and 4.1 and $#*! 11.3 million and 3.5.
Congrats to CBS. I know it’s one of my favorite networks. Do you watch any of these new shows? Let us know below, or in the FORUM.
