TNT Picks Up Second Season Of 'Men Of A Certain Age'


TNT executives and the network's audience are certainly enjoying Ray Romano's new series.
The drama network has renewedMen of a Certain Age for a sophomore campaign, ordering 10 new episodes.
Through the premiere of its first five episodes, Men of a Certain Age has averaged 4.4 million viewers. The show's Dec. 7 premiere ranked as ad-supported cable's top new series launch of 2009 among households and adults 25 to 54.
Men of a Certain Age explores the unique bonds of male friendship among three men approaching mid-life.

He has two best friends: Owen (Andre Braugher), is an overstressed husband and father, who's a salesman at his father's auto dealership; and Terry (Scott Bakula), a still-struggling-to-make-it actor.
"Men of a Certain Age has been embraced by viewers and critics alike, making our decision to renew an easy one," said Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies, in a statement. "Men of a Certain Age blends insightful storylines, highly relatable characters and top-notch performances from Ray Romano, Andre Braugher and Scott Bakula. We look forward to continuing our wonderful relationship with everyone involved."
