American Horror Story, Blindspot, Chicago Fire, and other TV shows have all made recent TV show news by being renewed for an additional season, having additional episodes ordered, or by having their air dates released. These shows air on FX and NBC.
American Horror Story (FX)
“American Horror Story” will return for a sixth installment on FX.
The coming season is untitled at this point, but will premiere in 2016.
Through its first four episodes, “AHS: Hotel” is up 7 percent versus “Freak Show” among adults 18-49 and 1 percent in total viewers, per Nielsen’s three-day delayed viewing numbers. In addition, the premiere was the second most-watched telecast in FX Networks history, behind only the premiere episode of “AHS: Freak Show.”
Chicago Fire (NBC)
Chicago P.D. (NBC)
NBC has renewed dramas “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D.” for the 2016-17 season.
The renewal ensures a fifth season for “Chicago Fire” and a fourth season for “Chicago P.D.”
“Chicago Fire” has consistently won its 10 p.m. Tuesday time period this season, drawing a 1.8 Nielsen live-plus-same day among adults 18-49 for its most recent broadcast. The newest “Chicago P.D.” drew a 1.4 Wednesday at 10 p.m.
The Mysteries of Laura (NBC)
NBC has ordered three additional episodes of “The Mysteries of Laura”
If no additional episodes are ordered, that would bring executive producer Greg Berlanti‘s sophomore drama’s total Season 2 order to 16 episodes — six short of the typical 22-episode season.
Wednesday’s episode of “The Mysteries of Laura” drew a 1.2 ratings among adults 18-49 in Nielsen live-plus-same day numbers, finishing fourth among English-language broadcast offerings in its 8 p.m. timeslot.
NBC has renewed freshman drama “Blindspot” for a second season
Since its Sept. 21 launch, the series has dominated the 10 p.m. Monday timeslot.
“Blindspot” is averaging a 3.7 rating in the advertiser coveted adults 18-49 demographic and 12.7 million viewers overall so far this season, according to Nielsen estimates. Those numbers make it the number one new series of the new fall season in 18-49.
“Blindspot” is undefeated in the time period so far this season versus its broadcast competition in adults 18-49 and is out rating its ABC and CBS competition combined in that key demo.
American Crime (ABC)
ABC has set the premiere date for the second season of the anthology series “American Crime.”
It will air Wednesdays at 10 p.m. during the mid-season hiatus of “Nashville,” which currently occupies that time period.
Season 2 of “Secrets and Lies” had originally been slated to fill in for “Nashville” during the hiatus.
