CBS Orders Full Seasons for 'Vegas' and 'Elementary'
Tuesday, October 23, 2012
In a move that should surprise no one, CBS has given full season orders to its two biggest new shows, Vegas and Elementary.
Vegas premiered with nearly 15 million viewers with subsequent episodes averaging 12 million. Elementary began with 13.4 million and now averages 11 million.
The two shows join NBC's Revolution, Go On and The New Normal, FOX's The Mindy Project and Ben and Kate and the CW's Arrow on the list of new fall shows to receive full seasons.
ABC's Last Resort, 666 Park Avenue and The Neighbors, the CW's Emily Owens, M.D. and Beauty and the Beast and NBC's Guys with Kids have all received orders for additional scripts, though none have been picked up for the full season yet.
The only new shows to be cancelled so far are CBS' Made in Jersey and NBC's Animal Practice. Still waiting decisions are FOX's The Mob Doctor, CBS' Partners, ABC's Nashville and NBC's Chicago Fire.
The fact that 40 percent of the new shows have already been picked up for a full season while only two have been cancelled is a very good start for the major networks.
Vegas airs Tuesdays at 10pm and Elementary airs Thursdays at 10pm.
