Hannibal Gets a 2nd Season from NBC!
Far and away my favorite news story in a while. NBC has taken a chance on my current favorite show. And renewed Hannibal for a 2nd season. It will get 13 episodes during season two. The ratings have not been great for broadcast tv. I was almost hoping AMC or A and E would grab it just because I think it would really fit in right before or after their horror series either The Walking Dead or Bates Motel. Nonetheless, I hope more people discover this classy and gory little piece of great tv. Below is the NBC press release: From the press release: Through its eight original telecasts to date, “Hannibal” is averaging a 2.0 rating, 6 share in adults 18-49 and 4.7 million viewers overall in “most current” results from Nielsen Media Research. ”Hannibal” is the youngest drama on ABC, CBS and NBC, with a median age for its audience of 45.7. It’s also an upscale drama, indexing at a 111 among adults 18-49 living in homes with $100K+ incomes (with 100 indicating an average concentration of those homes). Additionally, “Hannibal” is heavily time-shifted, with its 18-49 rating growing by 75% going from next-day “live plus same day” ratings to “live plus seven day” results.In addition to Fuller, Martha De Laurentiis, Jesse Alexander, Chris Brancato, Sara Colleton, Katie O’Connell, Elisa Roth, Sidonie Dumas and Christophe Riandee also serve as executive producers.The series is produced by Gaumont International Television, Dino De Laurentiis Company and Living Dead Guy Productions, and co-commissioned internationally by Sony Pictures Television Networks.
