CBS Orders Full Seasons of New Comedies THE CRAZY ONES, MOM, and THE MILLERS

     October 18, 2013


CBS has just given full season orders to three of its new comedy series, ensuring there will be 22 episodes of The Crazy Ones, Mom, and The Millers.  The Robin Williams-fronted The Crazy Ones is currently the number one new comedy on TV in both 18-49 demo ratings and total viewers, so its pickup was not that much of a shock.  Likewise, Will Arnett and Margo Martindale’s The Millers continues to do strong in the ratings on Thursdays, though it doesn’t hurt to have the juggernaut The Big Bang Theory as your lead-in.  Executive producer Chuck Lorre’s new show Mom has taken a bit longer to catch on, but the Anna Faris/Allison Janney two-hander has been climbing as of late in its Monday timeslot.

Other new series that have been granted more episodes include the NBC drama The Blacklist, which was given a full season order, and Fox’s Sleepy Hollow, which has been renewed for a second season following the conclusion of its 13-episode first season.
