NBC has given Debra Messing’s cop dramedy Mysteries of Laura a full-season order, picking up an additional nine episodes of the freshman series.
With a big lead-in from the season finale of America’s Got Talent, NBC’s new dramedy The Mysteries of Laura got off to a good start. Laura posted a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating at 10 p.m., marking the highest demo rating in the 10 p.m. Wednesday hour for any Big Three network show since Feb. 26, not including sports programs. Laura retained an impressive 91% of Talent’s lead-in 2.3 rating. The show did slide a bit from its first to its second half hour, from a 2.3 to a 1.9, always cause for concern. Talent was the night’s No. 1 show with a 2.3 from 8 to 10 p.m., down 8 percent from last year’s finale.
NBC is filling out its 2014-15 season lineup, giving series orders to dramas Constantine and The Mysteries of Laura and comedy A to Z. All three projects hail from Warner Bros. TV.
