CBS finished the first four weeks of the new season at the top of the ratings heap in demos, and now all five of its freshmen series have received full-season orders.
That’s a significant development these days, in a TV landscape in which some lower-rated shows never even see a second episode.
“Everything has clicked so far this year — from development in January, to scheduling in May, to production over the summer, to marketing and publicity in the fall,” said Nina Tassler, President, CBS Entertainment. “It’s all testimony to the executives in our halls who remain restless for more success, and the amazing creative talent on our sets who continue to deliver the goods.”
