Atlanta-based TNT has given Ray Romano’s midlife crisis drama “Men of a Certain Age” a second season of 10 more episodes.
The show has aired six so far since it debuted last month. The show opened at a promising 5.4 million viewers and received mostly positive reviews. But the January 4 episode, the most recent one I have numbers for, only drew 3.1 million viewers. Clearly, TNT has confidence the show won’t drop any further.
The drama features three friends in their late 40s struggling to deal with lives that aren’t quite what they expected. The breakout star is Andre Braugher, who plays a paunchy car salesman chafing under the heat of his boss and dad.
Less surprisingly, CBS hits “NCIS: Los Angeles” and “The Good Wife” were given early nods for second seasons. The “NCIS” spinoff has held more than 75% of the “NCIS” lead in Tuesday, averaging more than 16 million viewers. “The Good Wife” has also held steady in its ratings, averaging about 13 million viewers at 10 p.m. on Tuesdays.
