“None of this had to happen”: The network’s new sexual harassment policy did not prevent them from leaving Patricia Heaton’s new show after accusations against the star’s husband, a producer.
CBS is doubling down on all its new shows. The network has renewed Evil for a second season, and handed out full-season orders to its other four freshman series: All Rise, Carol’s Second Act, The Unicorn and Bob Hearts Abishola.
Depending on the Nielsen metric, CBS comedy Carol’s Second Act was either the third- or fourth-most-watched series premiere in the week of Sept. 23. In terms of how closely its viewers watched, however, the Patricia Heaton-led series may be the No. 1 newcomer of the fall.
