Full seasons for Madam Secretary, NCIS: New Orleans, Scorpion, Stalker

2014-10-28_1115Good news for TEN today with full season orders for CBS shows Madam Secretary, NCIS: New Orleans, Scorpion and Stalker.

They follow other season orders for How to Get Away with Murder, Gotham, Black-ish, The Flash and Jane the Virgin.

What isn’t yet clear is if all 4 titles win a further 9 episodes.

NCIS: New Orleans has averaged 18.16 million viewers, and a 2.8 in adults 18-49.

Madam Secretary is the most watched scripted series on Sunday nights in the US with 13.53 million viewers, averaging 1.8 in adults 18-49.

Scorpion is averaging 15.17 million viewers, 3.6 in adults 18-49 and is Monday’s most-watched drama.

All three are currently airing on TEN.

Stalker, with Maggie Q and Dylan McDermott, is averaging 9.49 million viewers, 2.1 in adults 18-49. Nine had previously indicated it would fast-track this title but it is yet to appear.

Meanwhile the US also has its first cancelled new show of the fall season, ABC’s Manhattan Love Story featuring Jake McDorman and Analeigh Tipton as a new couple in New York City. It was yanked after just 4 episodes.

  1. Maev....Sydney

    @ GuanoLad …Your post reads like that is an actual fact …when actually it is just your opinion…as it is mine when I say I really like Scorpion.

  2. These shows do rate for ten. Both scorpion and madam secretary average between 700k to 800k on consolidated weekly ratings. Not spectacular but def solid ratings.

  3. The hollywoodreporter is reporting that all four shows were given the standard ”back nine” order, meaning they will be having a full 22-episode season.

  4. And average of 1.8 18-49s is a bit misleading at episode 4 of Madam Secretary. It’s made up of a 3 something for the premiere and some 1.5/1.4s. It has good total numbers and quiet few of them are 50-54.

    These shows do give Ten lots of episodes that will rate in the 400ks, which is better than 300k. But its not going to turn their balance sheet around dramatically.

    And the worst one rates the best!
