Good news for "Hellcats," "Nikita," and "One Tree Hill."
The two rookie shows and veteran "OTH" just received full season pickups from The CW. "This fall, The CW made several strategic scheduling moves, including adding two of the most buzzed-about new series, ';Hellcats' and ';Nikita,' to our line-up, and we're thrilled that they've paid off for us," said Dawn Ostroff, President, Entertainment, The CW. "By giving our two freshman series and proven performer ';One Tree Hill' full orders, we'll be able to continue our success and momentum throughout the rest of the season."
Of The CW's new shows receiving back nine episode orders, first-year drama "Hellcats," starring Aly Michalka and Ashley Tisdale, has proven itself by scoring the best retention of any show to follow veteran reality hit "America's Next Top Model." Since its premiere, "Hellcats" has dramatically improved The CW's Wednesday 9-10pm time period by 80% in women 18-34 (1.8/5), 100% in adults 18-34 (1.2/4) and 126% in total viewers (2.5mil). With breakout star Maggie Q, "Nikita" has become the second most-watched show on The CW (3.6mil), paired with the network's most watched series "The Vampire Diaries."
