BOTH SCRIPTED HOURS TO RETURN IN 2013
TNT has ordered a fourth season of drama Rizzoli & Isles and a second season of recent arrival Dallas, with 15 new episodes of each for 2013. Season to-date, the Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander crime solver is averaging 7.1 million viewers in the Tuesday 9 p.m. hour, according to Nielsen, and it ranks as the top-rated returning scripted series on basic cable this summer to-date.
Dallas, meanwhile, rose to 7.8 million viewers for its two-episode debut, (with DVR usage factored in), and it ranks as basic cable’s top new series this year to-date. TNT is now home to the No. 1 show for the third consecutive summer following Falling Skies in 2011 and Rizzoli & Isles in 2010.
