TNT renews ‘Men of a Certain Age,’ CBS reups ‘Good Wife,’ ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’

men-of-a-certain-age

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.

Andre Braugher is one of the most underused actors in the business. His character in Homicide: Life in the Strett (Pembleton) was one of the most fully fleshed out characters in TV history, thanks to his work.

BraugherFan is dead on. Pembleton was great on Homicide. Braugher’s character is the only one worth watching on Men.

It’s a great show – I really enjoy it. Braugher’s acting is fantastic – his character seems to be the most nuanced so far, but I like all the actors on the show. It’s a shame that the most recent episode had so many fewer viewers – it was one of the best ones so far (Romano’s character going on his first date since his divorce – funny and touching).

I like Braugher’s serious character the best and him and his family are developing nicely. I like Joe’s character now that he has a gf and was totally LOL on the floor when his employee said in spanish (end of episode 6 go with the flow) Thank God now maybe he won’t have to jack off in his office). Too funny I laughed so loud it woke my birds up.
Anyway I’d like to see Joes’ boys stop being wimps, its very annoying. And, Bakula’s character isn’t really going anywhere quite yet. It was good the time he got pissed and stole that guys car over his coffee. We need to see some more anger from lover boy, like he needs to get into trouble and be arrested, then have an affair with his lawyer or something.
