Multichannel news reports that TNT has renewed Saving Grace for a third season and the new Steven Bochco produced Raising the Bar for a second season, ordering fifteen episodes of each for next season.
Though Bar debuted strong with 7.7 million viewers it dropped to just under five million (4.978) in its second airing, but TNT SVP Michael Wright said the show has surpassed expectations.
“Before Raising The Bar debuted, we were confident that the series would be a strong addition to TNT,” Wright said in a statement “The series, however, has gone beyond our expectations. What has been most satisfying to us is to watch the creative growth of the show across the episodes and to see these characters and stories pay-off as the season progresses. It was an easy decision to bring back Raising The Bar for a second season and to continue our great relationship with Steven Bochco and the entire cast and crew.”
