Limitless To Live, “Player” & “Oil” Die?

The verdict on four more Fall launched series have seemingly been revealed.

The news is very good for CBS’ “Limitless” and “Code Black”. The former has scored a full season pick-up, while the latter has received orders foe six additional scripts which means it has a good chance of going to a full season.

In Live+Same Day numbers, “Limitless” has been averaging a 1.7 rating and nine million viewers while “Code Black” is doing a 1.3 and 7.4 million viewers.

The news isn’t so rosy for several other shows – notably ABC’s Don Johnson-led “Blood and Oil” and NBC’s Wesley Snipes-led “The Player”. Both shows have seen their initial thirteen episode orders now cut to ten and nine respectively.

Both shows have been low raters and critical flops. ‘Oil’ has stablised at a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49, while “The Player” episodes average a 0.9 rating.
