NBC Is Pleased With 'The Event', 'LOLA' and 'Outsourced'
After canceling "Outlaw", NBC moved on to announcing the shows which survive the casualty this Fall. Freshmen "The Event", "Law & Order: Los Angeles", and "Outsourced" have just received a full-season order.
"We are pleased with the quality of The Event, Law & Order: Los Angeles and Outsourced, and feel they are an important part of helping to re-build our schedule and our studio pipeline," NBC president Angela Bromstad said in the press release. "We believe in these new series and the creative auspices behind them."
Among the three, "LOLA" was the lowest rating-wise but NBC noted that the number has improved since the critically-panned pilot. Similarly "The Event" has also grown fan base over the weeks while "Outsourced" is popular among advertiser-favored young adult viewers.
Still waiting for their fates are fellow rookie series "Undercovers" and "Chase". EW also reported that "Chuck" is due to receive its back-nine episode order although no confirmation is given yet.
