In an Interview with Broadcasting & Cable’s Melissa Grego, Turner Entertainment Networks President Steve Koonin spoke in absolutely glowing terms when it came to Men of a Certain Age:this is from Broadcasting & Cable by way of TVByTheNumbers
Men of a Certain Age just wrapped its first season this week. You’ve ordered a second. Did it perform as you hoped?
This show surpassed every expectation I had. Our criteria are critical success, for which we got a check-plus; adding value to sales clients and cable affiliates, that’s a check-plus; and potential in ratings, [another] check-plus. It couldn’t have performed better than it did
TNT’s critically acclaimed series Men of a Certain Age closed its first season out with 2.6 million viewers (Live + Same Day) Monday night, with outstanding growth across the board when compared to the previous week’s episode. The season finale audience is expected to grow substantially when final Live + 7 data is available in two weeks. Current blended data shows the series averaging 4 million viewers for its first season.thanks to Helene for the reminder, as I did not post this when I first saw it, which was apparently... today, though I could have sworn it was longer ago.
NBC confirmed a while back that Scott Bakula would be around for one of the later episodes of the season. Is there anything you can say about what he's doing or additionally anyone else that we are familiar with that might be making a return appearance before the season's out?Source
Joshua Gomez: He's doing awesome work I can tell you that much. Get Scotty Bak.
Zachary Levi: I know this is a spoiler and we're not supposed to talk about it but it turns out Scott Bakula is my dad. Yeah, I don't know. He really is doing fantastic work. I can't even tell you how much I love Scotty Bak. That guy is not only super talented but he is so fun. Like he's like a little kid like... You know, we'll just break into song or do funny voices and but he's such a pro like just like to a T. You know, just always on his moments, always diving into this character, Steven Bartowski who is very odd and kitschy and quirky and brilliant and, you know, and he brings it every time, every scene and it's such a pleasure to work opposite him. And, you know, and Josh gets to work with him as well so it's nice when you have a guest star that, you know, kind of traverses both the spy and personal life.
