NCIS: LA & The Good Wife win full series
TEN is getting a good hit rate on its newest acquisitions with two shows winning a full series.
Good news for TEN with CBS deciding to pick up NCIS: Los Angeles and The Good Wife.
So far NCIS: Los Angeles is the most-watched new show of the Fall season, although it’s Australian debut faced off against stiff competition.
The Good Wife, which TEN has the rights to is the second most-watched new series. The legal series starring Julianna Margulies pulled 13.7 million viewers. David Mott recently told TV Tonight, “It’s brilliantly done. We have the two best one hour dramas in our view. It has political scandal and sexual scandal. I haven’t decided where that’s going…”
Added with Glee, it gives TEN a good hit rate so far, while The Vampire Diaries (GO!) and Melrose Place (TEN) received orders for additional scripts. Expected to win pick ups are ABC’s Modern Family, Cougar Town and drama FlashForward.
TEN is yet to slate a repeat for last night’s NCIS: LA, but you can bet your bottom dollar it will surface somewhere.
