CBS Goes All Out on ‘Gary,’ Adds to ‘Worst Week’ Order

Nov 14, 2008  •  Post A Comment

CBS is giving a thumbs-up to first-year comedies “Gary Unmarried” and “Worst Week.”
The network Friday ordered a full season of “Gary” and three additional episodes of “Worst Week.” Both moves had been expected.
In the case of “Gary,” CBS has slightly redefined the traditional meaning of “full season.” The phrase usually refers to 22 episodes, generally divided between an initial 13-episode order and the so-called “back nine.” CBS has greenlit production on seven episodes of “Gary,” but has ordered two extra scripts, for a total of nine potential episodes.
As for “Week,” while the network likes the Monday night comedy, the show has performed modestly this fall. CBS also needs to make room for the return of “Rules of Engagement,” which is likely the main reason the network didn’t order even more episodes of “Worst Week.” Nonetheless, the order means “Worst Week” remains in contention for CBS’ 2009-10 schedule.
CBS is waiting until next week to decide the fate of new drama “Eleventh Hour.” Given its consistent ratings performance, however, the show is expected to get an order for more episodes.
“Gary Unmarried” is a co-production of CBS Paramount Network Television and ABC Studios. “Worst Week” is from CBS Paramount and Universal Media Studios.

  1. Please keep Worst Week. Every time I watch I love it. Its one of the best new shows I’ve seen in a very long time from a non cable network. I love that show!!!

  2. I had traveled to Japan earlier this summer with my wife and children and remained there for one week. We flew in coach because it was cheaper. Unfortunately our window views were blocked by the large engines, therefore my kids, both of who were first time flyers, had no view what so ever! Man was I pissed, because when I ordered the flight tickets I chose great seats from their website; seats that we did not get. Even though this was several months ago I am still quite pissed and suffer bad dreams just from thinking about it.
