NBC’s ‘Revolution,’ ‘The New Normal’ and ‘Go On’ Receive Fall’s First Full Order Pick Ups
NBC announced on Tuesday that it has given full back orders to three of their freshman series: apocalyptic drama Revolution and comedies Go On and The New Normal.
In a statement, NBC entertainment president Jennifer Salke said, “We’re impressed with the imagination and creative direction of the entire team on Revolution, not to mention the immediately strong response we got from the audience.”
As for their comedies, she said, “We’re also very proud of our new comedy block of Go On and The New Normal. In partnering with Matthew Perry for Go On, creator Scott Silveri has created a comedy with a highly original voice that deftly combines humor and emotion. And Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler have created a truly unique family in The New Normal that is reflective of the changing dynamics of the world we live in. These shows are both welcome additions to our new lineup!”
Revolution has benefited in the ratings from its spot in the line-up following singing competition The Voice on Mondays. Its debut garned the highest ratings for the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic for a premiering drama in the last three years.
Go On is currently ranking as the No. 1 new comedy of the fall in the ratings with The New Normal maintaining much of its audience.
NBC chairman Robert Greenblat added, “We’re very pleased with early results of the last three weeks of our fall season roll-out. The strategy for this season was to draft off the promotional platform of the Olympics and then begin our season early and strong. I think we’ve accomplished both of those goals, yet we know it’s a long season and there’s much work ahead of us.”
Revolution airs Monday nights at 10 PM. Go On and The New Normal air on Tuesday nights at 9 PM and 9:30 PM respectively.
