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.
