“The Rookie” gets second tour on ABC

THE ROOKIE - "Caught Stealing" - The rookies become the prime suspects after it is discovered a large sum of money used in a drug bust has gone missing on "The Rookie," airing TUESDAY, FEB. 5 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network.

ABC’s The Rookie will be back on the beat. The Nathan Fillion series earned a second season after a somewhat modest performance in its freshman season.

The series averaged about 0.73 in the demo and about four million viewers a week. For the network’s struggling 10 p.m. Tuesday slot, that’s decent enough. Extended viewing numbers, be as un/worthy as they may, makes it an appealing decision.

No word on how many episodes or if it will return in the fall. All things considered, it’s a likely bet to keep its slot and its position as a full season show.

The Rookie airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on ABC.
