Comedy “Great News” has not delivered strong live+same-day ratings in its first three weeks, but its performance did not cause NBC to waver in its support.
The network just ordered a second season of the comedy.
News of the renewal came Thursday evening, right around the time the network formally canceled fellow freshman comedy “Powerless.”
— Earlier Thursday, NBC renewed “The Blacklist” for season five.
Scripted NBC series still awaiting decisions on 2017-18 include “Trial & Error” and “Chicago Justice.”
