NBC Extends Four Drama Series

Nov 4, 2015  •  Post A Comment

NBC has expanded its orders for four drama series that have been performing well on the network this season. TVbytheNumbers.com reports that the network upped the episode orders for “Blindspot,” “Law & Order: SVU,” “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago PD.”

All four series will now have orders for 23 episodes this season.

“‘Blindspot’ has been among the top rookie shows of the season, averaging a shade under 2.5 in adults 18-49 (same-day ratings),” TVbytheNumbers reports. “‘Chicago Fire’ (1.77) and ‘SVU’ (1.62) are second and third among NBC dramas, while ‘Chicago PD’s’ 1.52 is tied with ‘The Blacklist’ for fourth on the network.”

The report notes that the four shows are among the bright spots of an “otherwise disappointing fall” for NBC, with “Heroes Reborn” falling by 50% since its premiere and the new series “The Player” and “Truth Be Told” apparently headed for cancellation.



  1. It is to bad about The Player. It is/was a fun show. NBC should have given it six more episodes and ran then on Sunday nights after football is done. I hope they can tie up the storyline in the 9th, and final, episode. To everyone involved with The Player Thank You for an entertaining show. With a good storyline and lots of action. Be proud of what you did and I hope another network or streaming service thinks about picking it up.

  2. Ditto, OverniteJOE. I’d hope they’d tie it up at the end, but I’m sure the last episode was filmed before they cancellation notice was handed down.
