Are you one of the millions of LOST fan who may-or-may-not have been secretly rooting against the success of PERSON OF INTEREST in the hopes that following its cancelation J.J. Abrams would revive the long dormant ODD JOBS project starring Michael Emerson and Terry O’Quinn? Well, firstly stop that, because we’re really digging PERSON OF INTEREST and second, don’t hold your breath. Or at least that’s our takeaway following today’s announcement that has CBS awarding the underrated Jim Caviezel/Michael Emerson series with a full season pick-up.
Also getting the go ahead for a complete first season (or to be more specific, twenty episodes and an order for two scripts) is UNFORGETTABLE, the season’s number one new drama, averaging 14 million viewing, improving on its Tuesday time period by 3% in both viewers and adults 18-49 versus last season.
Not so lucky, A GIFTED MAN, whose fate remains, at least as of this posting, unknown. Stay tuned.
