It was announced today that CBS has given a full season order to the new drama series “SEAL TEAM,” so fans can look forward to a few extra episodes this year. Season-one of the popular series premiered on September 27th, and the show has been crushing the competition on hump-day.
The show currently ranks as Wednesday’s number-one program in viewers, at least through the first two weeks of the season. The drama is averaging 12.04 million viewers, and 2.0 in adults 18-49 and 2.9 in adults 25-54 with live + 3-day lift. “SEAL TEAM” stars David Boreanaz, Max Thieriot, Neil Brown Jr., AJ Buckley, Toni Trucks and Jessica Paré. Benjamin Cavell, Ed Redlich, Christopher Chulack, Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly are executive producers for CBS Television Studios.
If you haven’t jumped into the series yet, the show is a new military drama that follows the professional and personal lives of Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute their dangerous missions. In the show Jason Hayes is the respected, intense leader of the Tier One team whose home life has suffered as a result of his extensive warrior’s existence. His team includes his trusted confidant, Ray Perry, the longest-tenured operator with whom Jason shares an ingrained shorthand, and Sonny Quinn, an exceptional, loyal soldier with a checkered past who still combats self-destructive tendencies. Undergoing additional rigorous training in the hope of joining Hayes’ select unit is Clay Spenser, a young, multi-lingual second generation SEAL with insatiable drive and dedication. There is also the CIA analyst, Mandy Ellis, who has sacrificed everything in her drive to root out evil and take down terrorists, and Lisa Davis, a no-nonsense, take-charge logistics officer. The show hasn’t been renewed for a second-season yet, but that seems very likely now that the series is getting more episodes, and is the number-one show for the night.
