CBS orders full season of 'Jericho'
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - CBS has ordered a full season of its rookie drama "Jericho," which has fit nicely into its Wednesday lineup.
While not a breakout hit of the size of NBC's "Heroes," the apocalyptic drama starring Skeet Ulrich has averaged 11.3 million viewers during its four airings to date, and has helped "Criminal Minds" and "CSI: NY" surge in the ratings.
The CBS order was for nine episodes, bringing its total order for the show to 22 episodes. "Heroes" is the only other newcomer to get a full-season pickup so far.
