It was a good day if you were in business with TNT and TBS (not so good for ABC). TNT has renewed Animal Kingdom for a second season, with TBS renewing comedies Wrecked for a second and Angie Tribeca for a third.
“Animal Kingdom has signaled the new tone for TNT dramas and is moving the network in the direction we hoped it would,” original programming Executive Vice President Sarah Aubrey said in a statement. “I’m confident that our strategy of working with high-caliber talent and then getting out of their way will continue to pay off.”
None of the series are breakout hits, but it seems like cable networks are accepting a 0.2-0.4 rating and less than 2 million viewers, but are all critically acclaimed.
