"NCIS: Los Angeles," "The Good Wife": Good to Go
*To the surprise of no one, CBS has given full-season orders to the two most watched new TV series of this new 2009-10 season: "NCIS: Los Angeles" and "The Good Wife."
"NCIS: Los Angeles," a spinoff of "NCIS," stars Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J as guys with big guns who apparently work for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. It also features Linda Hunt, and so far this season has attracted an average of 17.5 million viewers.
"The Good Wife" stars Julianna Margulies of "ER" fame, who this time plays an attorney who goes back to work after her skeevy politician husband is tossed in the hoosegow.
It also features Chris Noth, as the aforementioned Skeevy Husband.
This has attracted an average of 14 million viewers.
"NCIS: Los Angeles" and "The Good Wife" join the pantheon of freshman series that have already been picked up by their networks as of the third week of the new television season. That pantheon consists of Fox's "Glee" and Fox's "The Cleveland Show."
