In a not-so-surprising move, CBS has announced that it has renewed procedural and NCIS spin-off NCIS: Los Angeles and legal drama The Good Wife for sophomore seasons. Both rookie shows, which premiered in the fall, have produced not-so-shoddy ratings during their run, so the early renewal was quite expected.

"Two great new series, fronted by talented stars on one big night of television," Nina Tassler, president of CBS Entertainment, said in a statement. "We're proud of these shows and what they've accomplished on Tuesday night."


NCIS: Los Angeles, of course, owes much of its strong Nielsen numbers to the lean in from television's most watched series currently (that would be NCIS), while The Good Wife, topbilled by Julianna Margulies, isn't doing so badly either. It so far averages around 14 million, strong figures for any freshman offering.

The Good Wife, which also stars Christine Baranski and Chris Noth, was given a full season pick up on October last year, extending its run from 13 to 22 episodes, later adding one more.

NCIS: Los Angeles, meanwhile, started off with a backdoor pilot on the hugely popular NCIS, until receiving a full season pick up.
