The Mysteries of Laura, the only NBC freshman series to get a second-season pickup, received a 13-episode renewal in May after airing 20 episodes in its first season. The series starring Debra Messing opened its second season with a 1.2 Live+Same Day rating among adults 18-49, an OK number for a 8 PM show with no lead-in. It has held steady, logging a 1.2 in Week 2 and 1.1 in Week 3. The procedural, from Warner Bros. TV, Berlanti Prods. and Kapital Entertainment, also does OK in time-shifted viewing, with the second-season opener getting a +42% lift in Live+7 to a 1.7 18-49 rating.
NBC recently gave breakout new drama Blindspot, also from WBTV, an order for 9 backup scripts which was then followed by a full-season episodic order.
