Shades of Blue Renewed!

A bit late, because I was in Vegas to see All I Have, but Shades of Blue has been renewed for a second season! Via NBC’s press release:

“We want to thank Jennifer, who is the hardest working woman we know, for her incredible efforts as both the star and producer of this show, as well as well as our other amazing producers and cast for all their tireless work in creating one of the most compelling dramas on television today,” said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke. “We’re so excited to find out where this story will lead and have them raise the stakes even higher in what we know will be a fantastic second season.”

In Live +3 results from Nielsen Media Research through its first three telecasts, “Shades of Blue” has averaged a 2.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 11.2 million viewers overall. “Shades of Blue” has delivered NBC’s first Thursday 10-11 p.m. ET time period wins with in-season regular programming over original competition on ABC and CBS since March 2010 in 18-49 and since March 2008 in total viewers.

“Shades of Blue” is also one of the most time-shifted shows on television, with its most recent Live +7 Nielsen results lifting the show by +95% in 18-49 versus its live plus same day rating (from a 1.32 to a 2.57) and by +4.7 million viewers overall (6.6 million to 11.3 million). The +95% gain was the #1 biggest percentage increase for the week of Jan. 11-17 on the Big 4 networks and was the #1 biggest Live +7 percentage lift so far this season for Week 2 of a new series on those nets.

The series and its cast have been critically applauded by several prominent publications, including The New York Times, Hollywood Reporter, Entertainment Weekly, Los Angeles Times and TV Guide.

Congrats to Jennifer and the rest of the cast and crew!!
