Variety reports that CBS has given full season pickups to The Good Wife and NCIS: Los Angeles.
Good Wife has held up well behind NCIS: L.A. in the 10 p.m. slot where The Mentalist blossomed for CBS last season. The Julianna Margulies starrer ranks No. 2 among new skeins in viewers, with an average of 13.7 million; it's averaging a 3.0/8 in adults 18-49. ...
Among the other frosh skeins that are no-brainers for renewals are ABC laffers Modern Family and Cougar Town and drama FlashForward, but there's no official word yet from the Alphabet.
I'm a bit surprised that Wife gets such an early pickup, though of course it could still get cancelled anyway. I've watched 1.2 episodes, and Marguilies is rocking the Amy Irving hair, though it's starting to feel like a procedural.
Note to self: Use the word skein more often.
