Eli Stone


Recommended Posts

The ratings for Tuesday's season premiere of " Eli Stone" are not yet in, but ABC is already thinking about extending the the show's run this season.


The network has ordered four more scripts for the second-year show, according to The Hollywood Reporter. That sort of thing usually doesn't happen until after networks get a sense of how a show is doing in the ratings, so the folks at the Alphabet are presumably pretty happy with the creative direction of the show so far.

After posting OK-but-not-great ratings in the winter and spring -- where it was one of the few original scripted shows on the air for a time because of the writers strike -- ABC ordered 13 episodes for this season. Ordering the extra scripts now will help "Eli Stone" stay on a smooth production schedule should ABC eventually decide to produce those episodes.

Tuesday's episode served as a kind of re-introduction for the series, which last aired an original episode in April. After having surgery to remove a brain aneurysm, lawyer Eli (Jonny Lee Miller) has been free of prophetic visions for six months but begins to discover that his decision has had a larger effect than he thought.

Sigourney Weaver guest-starred in the premiere, and Katie Holmes and Seal are among those scheduled to appear on the show in the near future.
