Full Season Orders for "Practice" and "Big Bang"

kwalsh.jpgIt's another one of those good news/bad news situations. The good news is fans of ABC's "Private Practice" and CBS's freshman comedy "The Big Bang Theory" can relax. Both shows were just picked up by their respective networks for full seasons. The bad news: anyone who voted for either of them in our fall TV deathpool just lost big time.

"Practice," a spin-off of ABC's other medical drama "Grey's Anatomy," has become the highest rated new series this season, according to Entertainment Weekly. The show is pulling in huge amounts of that coveted 18-49 year-old demographic, averaging almost 13 million viewers over the last month.

CBS's "The Big Bang Theory," about two geniuses who know everything except how to talk to girls, is the first freshman comedy to be ordered for a full season this year. Variety reports the show attracts an average of 9 million viewers and draws in almost ten percent more viewers than its lead-in "How I Met Your Mother."

In other news, CBS's "The Unit" also got a full season pick-up. Even though the show is in its third season, CBS had only ordered 13 episodes. But with the latest episode raking in over 11 million viewers, the network decided to continue the show. -- Chris Sardelli
