"SHARK", "THE GAME" & "7th HEAVEN" GET FULL SEASONS
A bunch of renewals are in the bag as CBS became the second network to pick-up a second show for a full season.
Thursday night post-CSI legal drama "Shark" starring James Woods made its case as its last episode delivered some of its best ever results in several demos including the advertiser coveted 18-49 category. The drama averages over 14 million viewers, beating ABC's freshman drama "Six Degrees".
Also this week, a couple of renewals from The CW as footballers' wives sitcom "The Game" (spin-off from "Girlfriends") earns its back 9 episodes for retaining 95% of its lead-in.
Earlier this week, The CW cancelled its other new show, family-on-the-run drama "Runaway". The CW has also picked up drama '7th Heaven' about a minister's family for a full 11th season.
Now both ABC and CBS have two new shows picked up for a full season, NBC and The CW have one, while FOX has yet to announce their cancellations and full season pick-ups.
