  1. @ stevie g – Fair question. It is a combination of 2 abbreviations rather than solely being an abbreviation of New Orleans. The LA is the US Postal Abbreviation for Louisiana, so New Orleans, Louisiana = NOLA

  2. Good news that, well for Madam Secretary and Scorpion, NCIS can go. As usual though, our household has only watched the first episodes of both series (to see if they passed our stringent testing), they did, Flying colours as they say, watch the rest when we’ve got ’em all.

  3. The McCarthy’s only go a partial back-order to fill a hole in CBS’s schedule. Stalker has been pulled off air. Battle Creek has a guaranteed 13 episode screening, but CBS have not put it on during sweeps to eliminate the the risk of damaging it their advertising rates.

    Madam Secretary has been averaging between 1.3 and 1.7 with 18-49s on the back of a huge staggered lead-in from NFL games. A mid-season renewal is a surprise but its and in-house production, has a large over 50s audience and they have had massive problems launching new Sunday night dramas. They end up renewing The Good Wife with less so why not renew it and get some good publicity and stop negative publicity (elsewhere than the Reporter) seems to be the approach.

    CSI Cyber and The Odd Couple have potential.

    NCIS: NO and Scorpion have rated well and are obvious renewals.

    Every thing not cancelled after…
