The mystery of whether Debra Messing will have a job for the rest of the season? Solved.
The Messing-led Laura is the first new Peacock Net series to receive a 22-episode pickup. Other fall TV freshmen having already received full-season rides include Fox’s Gotham, CBS’ Madam Secretary, NCIS: New Orleans, Scorpion and Stalker, ABC’s How to Get Away With Murder and black-ish, and The CW’s The Flash and Jane the Virgin.
Laura thus far is averaging 10.4 million viewers and a 1.8 demo rating (with DVR playback factored in), and in Live+Same Day data has improved the time slot’s total audience 58 percent from its year-ago performance.
