'Scorpion' looking good for a full season order

14 hours ago

It may lack the comic book appeal of The CW's The Flash or Fox's Gotham, or the boundary-pushing of ABC's How to Get Away with Murder, but CBS' new geek squad drama Scorpion continues to perform solidly in the ratings. Monday night's episode built upon its lead-in to tie The Blacklist as the night's top rated drama. Scorpion (10.5 million viewers, 2.4 adults 18-49 rating) was also steady with last week's performance. Those are all factors that make a network want to give a show a full-season pickup. (CBS' NCIS: New Orleans and Madam Secretary are also fairly likely to get a full ride. »
