TNT’s “Leverage” gets a third season

Timothy Hutton & Co. will be back for more cons in 2010 on the hit drama “Leverage,” Atlanta-based TNT announced today.

The show is part of a slate of seven shows TNT has aired this summer on Mondays through Wednesdays its most aggressive drive to build original shows in its history. And so far, it’s been pretty successful. All six scripted shows have done at least reasonably well, including the new shows “HawthoRNe” (already renewed) and to a lesser degree “Dark Blue” (status for renewal still pending). The only misstep was the reality show “Wedding Day,” which was quickly relegated to Saturday mornings.

“Leverage” is averaging 3.5 million viewers this year, up slightly from season one. If you count DVR viewing up to 7 days after original airing, that number goes up to 4.1 million.

The show’s summer run ends Sept. 9, with remaining episodes running in the winter. Season three will feature 15 episodes starting in the summer of 2010.

Love the show. It’s like a modern day Mission Impossible. I watch all of TNT’s orginials(Closer, Hawthorne, Saving Grace, Leverage)not to keen on Dark Blue, but it may eventually grow on me.

Hopefully TNT will not take too much stock in the skewed rating’s system. I enjoy watching most of the shows (sorry, I cannot take Rasing the Bar) when I can, but I really enjoy catching the reruns or watching/listening to them online at the office while eating lunch.

Thank goodness for stations like TNT, USA and SyFy that still believe a good sitcom, dramady or series is better than ANY reality show.

I’m glad they renewed Leverage. It’s a fun series as long as they stick to the scams and not to quirky little things like Sophie hooking up Nate so that she won’t end up falling for him (again).

Love Leverage. Please don’t replace Sophi. If you have to I can deal with it and normally like the new replacement. But not the one you have now. She is entirely too pushy and wants to run things. Not nearly as enjoyable the second season because of her.
