Renewals: NCIS: LA, The Good Wife
More good news for TEN's new international titles. Meanwhile, Parenthood, SVU & The Marriage Ref move into NBC to resolve Leno's timeslot.
Good news for TEN with CBS renewing both NCIS: Los Angeles and The Good Wife.
“Two great new series, fronted by talented stars on one big night of television,” said Nina Tassler, president of CBS Entertainment. “We’re proud of these shows and what they’ve accomplished on Tuesday night.”
They will add to TEN’s new slate which has already seen Glee and Modern Family renewed.
Both NCIS: Los Angeles and The Good Wife, featuring Julianna Margulies, have enjoyed healthy ratings in the US.
Meanwhile, NBC has announced its replacements for the early-March, 10pm post-Jay Leno schedule which sees Law & Order (Mondays), Parenthood (Tuesdays), Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (Wednesdays), The Marriage Ref (Thursdays), Dateline (9pm Fridays). Who Do You Think You Are? and unaired Trauma will also form part of the new line-up earlier in the evenings.
These shows could now be reconsidered by Aussie programmers.
NBC is yet to clarify the outcome of its late-night Leno / Conan struggles.
