LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- NBC is giving three freshmen series, including “The Event,” a full-season pickup.
Besides the much-hyped thriller “The Event,” the network gave a vote of confidence Monday to “Law & Order: Los Angeles” and the sitcom “Outsourced.”
None of the series has posted stellar ratings in a season in which new shows have struggled to attract viewers.
But NBC noted that “The Event” and the Los Angeles-set “Law & Order” have improved ratings in their time slots, while “Outsourced” is doing well with advertiser-favored young adult viewers. The network finished fourth last season.
NBC’s “The Event” airs 9 PM EDT Monday, “Law & Order: Los Angeles” is on 10 PM EDT Wednesday, and “Outsourced” airs Thursday at 9:30 PM EDT.
UPDATE: On Tuesday, NBC announced it was also giving full-season pickups to the new drama “Chase,” as well as for returning action-geek-spy comedy “Chuck,” starring Zachary Levi.
