PRIVATE PRACTICE GOING STRONG
ABC has picked up Kate Walsh's Private Practice — the Grey's Anatomy spin-off — for an entire season. With an average of 13.4 million viewers, Private Practice is this fall's most watched new show.
CBS' freshman comedy The Big Bang Theory and CW's Gossip Girl were also part of the first batch of new shows to earn a full-season commitment.
Of course, not all the new shows can be winners. Viva Laughlin, CBS' musical TV murder mystery, was yanked after just two airings.
