Revolution, The New Normal And Go On Get Full Season Orders From NBC
If you've been enjoying NBC's new comedies Go On and The New Normal, there's good news! The network has already decided to move forward with full season orders for both comedies, which made their debuts early in September. Also picked up for a full first season is J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke's post-apocalyptic drama Revolution.
Given the ratings for all three shows, it isn't exactly surprising. NBC's benefited greatly from the popularity of its singing competition series The Voice and that ratings success is likely to have spilled over - at least a little bit - to the shows that air afterward. On Monday nights, it's Revolution and on Tuesdays, it's Go On and The New Normal.
According to NBC's announcement, Revolution, which debuted on September 17 is a drama set in a world where all the power has gone out, is averaging a 3.6 rating, 9 share in adults 18-49 and 9.8 million viewers in “live plus same day” results through its first three telecasts. Meanwhile, Go On is averaging a 3.2 rating, 9 share in adults 18-49 and 8.6 million viewers overall in “live plus same day” averages for its first three regular-slot telecasts. And The New Normal, which airs on Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. after Go On, is averaging a 2.2 rating, 6 share, with about 6 million viewers. Needless to say, things are going well for all three shows.
The Voice's lead-in may have helped these new series, but people wouldn't be sticking around if they weren't enjoying them. So it's good to know they'll be sticking around for full seasons.
