No surprise here — NBC has renewed midseason comedy About A Boy for a second season. The romantic comedy, from Jason Katims, has done solid business on Tuesdays behind The Voice, averaging a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 8.3 million viewers in most current ratings. What’s more, after the inevitable post-premiere slide, the show has held ground in the ratings, even posting a few upticks. About A Boy, based on Nick Hornby’s book and the movie with Hugh Grant, stars David Walton and Minnie Driver. Katims exec produces with Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, Liza Chasin, Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal for Universal TV, Working Title Films, True Jack Prods. and Tribeca Prods. No word yet on About A Boy‘s Tuesday companion, Growing Up Fisher, whose renewal has not been as certain as About A Boy‘s.
