Congratulations to the cast and crew of S.W.A.T. for the second season renewal! Also got a renewal was the freshman drama, SEAL Team. Sidenote: I know I’m behind on the gallery updates, I’m so sorry, but I will make up for it once my Internet connection is fixed! Meanwhile, check out the official press release of the renewals below.

CBS announced today that the Network’s top two freshman dramas, SEAL TEAM and S.W.A.T., are being renewed for the 2018-2019 broadcast season. The pickups follow the previous renewal of the top new series of the season, YOUNG SHELDON. Based on current Nielsen ratings, YOUNG SHELDON, SEAL TEAM and S.W.A.T. comprise three of the top five most-watched new shows.

“These exciting new dramas have been sensational additions to our schedule, are striking all the right notes creatively, and really connect with our viewers,” said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. “SEAL TEAM has strengthened our Wednesday line up – routinely winning its time period with over 10 million viewers and allowing us to build an even more powerful night, while S.W.A.T. has improved Thursday’s 10:00 PM hour by over 2.5 million viewers versus last season. Additionally, both are among the very top streamers on our digital platforms, including CBS.com and CBS All Access. We congratulate the talented casts and producers on an amazing year as we look forward to their return next season.”

SEAL TEAM is the Network’s #1 new drama in viewers (10.23m) and is tied with S.W.A.T. in adults 18-49 (1.8), while S.W.A.T. ranks second in viewers (9.80m).

SEAL TEAM is a one-hour military drama starring David Boreanaz that follows the professional and personal lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute the most dangerous missions that our country can ask of them. Benjamin Cavell, Ed Redlich, Christopher Chulack, Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly serve as executive producers. SEAL TEAM is produced by CBS Television Studios.

Inspired by the classic television series and feature film, S.W.A.T. stars Shemar Moore as the locally born and raised sergeant tasked with running a specialized tactical unit that is the last stop in law enforcement in Los Angeles. Aaron Rahsaan Thomas, Shawn Ryan, Justin Lin, Neal Moritz, Marney Hochman, Danielle Woodrow and Pavun Shetty serve as executive producers. S.W.A.T. is produced by Sony Pictures Television in association with CBS Television Studios

Last month, S.W.A.T. received an additional seven-episode order, bringing the total to 20 episodes. Now, CBS has ordered two more episodes, for a total of 22 episodes! Congratulations!

Congratulations to the cast and crew for receiving a full-season order, bringing up the total episodes of the first season to 20!

DEADLINE – CBS has made back order decisions on two of its three remaining new fall series, giving a full-season pickup to drama S.W.A.T. after three airings and ordering three more episodes of Mark Feuerstein’s multi-camera comedy series 9JKL.

S.W.A.T. has received an order for seven more episodes, bringing its total to 20 episodes. While that is two short of a traditional full season (22 episodes), it is considered full season as S.W.A.T. launched more than a month after the start of the season.

The Shemar Moore-starrer hasn’t been a breakout but has held up pretty well, dipping from 1.1 to 0.9 and from 6.7 million to 6.4 million viewers (Live+Same Day) between weeks 1-3. In Live+7, the action drama is averaging 10.36 million viewers, 1.9 in adults 18-49. Its November 2 premiere delivered CBS’ best performance in the Thursday 10 PM time period with entertainment programming in almost two years, since January 6, 2016 in viewers (10.52 million in L+7) and since March 3, 2016 in 18-49 (1.9).
