An NBC drama series has received a vote of confidence from the network. NBC ordered five more scripts for the second-year drama “The Mysteries of Laura,” Deadline.com reports.

The series, which stars Debra Messing, was reportedly the only new fall 2014 show to receive a pickup from NBC for a second season, with the network greenlighting a 13-episode season two back in May. The season two premiere on Sept. 23 delivered a 1.2 average rating in the key 18-49 demo in Live+Same Day data, Deadline notes.

“It has held steady, logging a 1.2 in Week 2 and 1.1 in Week 3,” the report notes. “The procedural, from Warner Bros. TV, Berlanti Prods. and Kapital Entertainment, also does OK in time-shifted viewing, with the second-season opener getting a +42% lift in Live+7 to a 1.7 18-49 rating.”

  1. A show that does a 1.2, 1.2 and a 1.14 and NBC order 5 more scripts(which basically means 5 more shows)? NBC isn’t interested in quality broadcasting. In a world where accountability is becoming more and more important, NBC refuses to held accountable for making stupid decisions. Would someone please stand up and take responsibility for this? Explain why a ridiculous decision like this was made? Who made it? Is this the TV station that supports Democrats? I hate to bring politics in, but maybe people need to see if the ridiculousness going on here mirrors our government. Yikes!
