[ # ] NBC renews Heroes and three other shows
February 19th, 2007 under Heroes, NBC

They’ve saved the cheerleader, and now "Heroes" will have a little longer to save the world. NBC has given the first-year hit an early pickup for the 2007-08 season, network chief Kevin Reilly told reporters Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour. Three other series — comedies "My Name Is Earl" and "The Office" and long-running drama "Law & Order: SVU" — also got the go-ahead for next season. "These four series represent some of the best of what we consider to be the ‘NBC brand’ of quality shows," Reilly says. "It’s a pleasure to give them an early renewal to develop more stories for next year, since we know they will remain both critical and commercial successes for a long time to come." None of the four pickups is much of a surprise. "Heroes," after all, is the top new show of the season in both viewers and the coveted adults 18-49 demographic, drawing better than 15 million viewers per week. "SVU" is NBC’s No. 2 drama at 12.9 million viewers per week, and "Earl" and "The Office" are both drawing solid numbers on Thursdays, particularly among younger viewers. " "Heroes," which returns from hiatus next week, has also added one more episode to its order for this season, bringing the total to 23.

Yay!!! I am so happy Heroes is coming back, I just hope it doesn’t go the same route as Lost. It will be interesting to see now that SVU is officially coming back if Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni will too?
