Great News Renewed

Great News Renewed for Season 2

This is a really good announcement for fans of a certain new sitcom.

NBC has renewed Great News for Season 2, three weeks into its freshman run of Tuesday twofers.

Season to date, the workplace comedy — starring Briga Heelan, Andrea Martin, John Michael Higgins and Nicole Richie — is averaging 3.6 million weekly viewers and a 0.9 demo rating — right on par with time slot predecessor Trial & Error (which has not yet been visited by the renewal gods).

Airing two episodes every Tuesday during the 9 o’clock hour, Great News is on track to wrap its first season on May 23.
