ABC picks up 'Rookie Blue' for Season 2

12 July 2010 12:48 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The fresh-faced cops of "Rookie Blue" will live to see another year on ABC.

The network and its Canadian production partner, Canwest, announced Monday (July 12) that they've picked up a second season of the show, which has performed reasonably well in the ratings this summer. 

It's averaging 7.1 million viewers per week and a 1.8 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic -- which is hardly spectacular, but pretty decent for a summer series (having "Wipeout" as a lead-in doesn't hurt). "Rookie Blue" has given ABC a big bump in the time period over the repeat programming that filled it most of last summer.

"We're very pleased that the show has connected with viewers, especially considering the challenge of finding an audience in the summer, and we are excited to pick it up for a second season," says Quinn Taylor, head of movies, miniseries and acquisitions for ABC.

Rookie Blue: New ABC Cop Show; Cancel or Keep It?

8 July 2010 6:57 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

ABC recently premiered a new police series for the summer months called Rookie Blue. Many have compared it in concept to Southland on NBC (and now TNT). Will this one stick around long enough to see season two?

Rookie Blue revolves around five rookie cops who are plunged into world of big city policing. The ensemble cast of the drama includes Missy Peregrym (Reaper), Gregory Smith (Everwood), Eric Johnson (Flash Gordon), Ben Bass, Enuka Okuma, Travis Milne, Charlotte Sullivan, Matt Gordon, Noam Jenkins, and Melanie Nicholls-King.

The TV show debuted on June 24th to a 1.9 rating in the all-important 18-49 demographic and 7.24 million viewers. In the regular season, those numbers wouldn't be cause for celebration but, in the summer months, they're quite respectable. For the timeslot, the premiere ranked second in the demo and first in total viewers.

First Thoughts on Global's 'Rookie Blue'

25 June 2010 5:00 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

Apparently, Global, that Americanized private Canadian TV network, is airing an original series. It's called Rookie Blue, a crime dramedy that tries to be Grey's Anatomy with guns and uniforms. In comparison with Southland's pilot, Rookie Blue's indicates that the show will just be a modest summer time killer.

The show takes place in an unknown Canadian city (Toronto) that epically fails at passing off for an American city.* While the pilot is focused on Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym), a rookie constable in the police of Toronto, Global's press materials indicate that we follow five rookie cops. Joining Andy are Dov Epstein (Gregory Smith), a thrill seeker; Gail Peck (Charlotte Sullivan), a rookie who wants to be the chief of police; Traci Nash (Enuka Okuma), a rookie who secretly smooches a detective (Noam Jenkins); and Chris Diaz (Travis Milne), a walking-talking police manual.

TV Review: ‘Rookie Blue’ Will Have to Handcuff Viewers to Keep Them

24 June 2010 8:06 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The ensemble cop drama has disappeared from the network television landscape as the crimes became more entertaining than the people who solved them on shows like “C.S.I.: Crime Scene Investigation,” “NCIS,” and “Criminal Minds.” After watching ABC’s remarkably generic and cliched “Rookie Blue,” it’s easy to see why.

TV Rating: 1.5/5.0

“We’ve learned how to shoot and fight and drive a police car really fast.” I couldn’t make narration like that up. Even if it is tongue-in-cheek in its over-representation of the rookie class of police officers that make up the ensemble of ABC’s new Thursday night entry, it’s still a great example of why this show doesn’t work — it doesn’t sound like anything anyone would ever say in the real world.

The first episode of this show created by Tassie Cameron documents the first day on the job of a group of five rookie police constables.

Defendor (2010)

10 June 2010 5:05 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

Although Defendor's trailers are not legendary, the film is certainly worth your time. In fact, director Peter Stebbings certainly delivered a humorous take on the genre of superhero films. At the same time, he managed to breathe depth into his first feature film by pulling out a deliciously ineffable performance by the cast led by Woody Harrelson.

The film begins when Arthur Poppington (Woody Harrelson), a construction worker, is evaluated by Dr. Ellen Park (Sandra Oh), a psychiatrist. At first, she asks him why he assaulted a dry cleaning store owner, Mr. Debrofkowitz (Bryan Renfro). As he opens to Dr. Park, Arthur reveals that he has assumed the identity of a superhero without powers called Defendor. During the night, Defendor/Arthur roams the street of Hammer City to fight criminals. In the process, he befriends Kat (Kat Dennings), a young prostitute, and has to face Chuck Dooney (Elias Koteas), a corrupted police officer. »

Meet the Leading Characters of 'Rookie Blue'

8 June 2010 5:43 PM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

Global, that Canadian private network which is barely interested in airing any original series, is organizing its marketing campaign for its police dramedy Rookie Blue. In these clips, you'll meet one of the five rookie cops in the TV series.

Andy McNally's (Missy Peregrym) father (Peter MacNeill) was once a respected detective, but he left the Toronto Police department with a tarnished reputation. This means that Andy would like to bring honour back in her family. However, when she's on the job, Andy feels like a fraud most of the time.

Dov Epstein (Gregory Smith) has been raised by hippie parents and is excited to become a policeman. After all, becoming it was his childhood dream.

Chris Diaz (Travis Milne) is a small-town boy who has landed in Canada's biggest city and he wasn't prepared for policing in a city like Toronto. Besides, he follows the police manual to the letter. »
