CBS Picks Up Three Series for Full Seasons

Oct 19, 2018  •  Post A Comment

CBS handed out a batch of full-season orders today, following the news earlier this month that the network had extended the season of freshman drama “FBI.”

Variety reports that CBS picked up “God Friended Me,” “The Neighborhood” and “Magnum P.I.” for full seasons.

“God Friended Me” is averaging more than 10 million viewers per episode, while “Magnum P.I.” has been delivering more than 9 million and “The Neighborhood” is topping 8 million weekly, Variety notes.

“All four series are noteworthy for featuring women or people of color in leading roles,” Variety adds. “Under President Kelly Kahl and top programming exec Thom Sherman, the network has been pushing to increase its on-camera inclusion and diversity.”

The report notes that “Happy Together” remains the only freshman CBS series that has yet to land a full-season order.

  1. So, has GOD FRIENDED ME announced that the messages are all coming from a guy who keeps getting his newspaper a day early? Love to see Kyle Chandler make an appearance.
