I am still hanging on with "The Crazy Ones," although it has gotten less entertaining in each episode. (Still have not seen last night's.) Although I greatly admire Margo Martindale (and Beau Bridges), "The Millers" seemed close to unwatchable the last time I checked in. And "Mom" has yet to do much for me, although I may give it another try. But here's the official word:
CBS has given full season "back nine" orders to television's top three freshman comedies — THE CRAZY ONES, THE MILLERS and MOM.
"We’re proud of CBS’s leadership position in comedy and excited to build on it with the back nine pick-ups of these three new comedies," said Nina Tassler, President, CBS Entertainment. "These series are creatively distinct, continue to improve each week and are led by strong showrunners, writing and production staffs, and feature amazingly talented casts."
THE CRAZY ONES is the season's #1 new comedy in viewers (13.71m), adults 18-49 (3.6/10) and adults 25-54 (4.8/12). THE CRAZY ONES wins its Thursday (9:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT) time period in viewers.
THE MILLERS sweeps its Thursday (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT) time period in viewers and key demographics and ranks as the #2 comedy in viewers (12.41m), adults 18-49 (3.2/09) and adults 25-54 (4.3/11). Last night, THE MILLERS retained 97% of its premiere rating in adults 18-49, 98% in adults 25-54 and 93% of its premiere audience, the best of any new series in these measures.
MOM is the third-most-watched new comedy, averaging 7.98 million viewers, delivering a 2.6/06 in adults 18-49 and 3.2/07 in adults 25-54 airing in the highly competitive Monday (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT) time period.
