September 9, 2009 |  3:11 pm

Sons Happy news for "Big Brother" and "Sons of Anarchy."

CBS renewed "Big Brother" for a 12th season, and the FX drama "Sons of Anarchy" kicked off its second season to a series-best 4.3 million viewers Tuesday at 10 p.m..

"Big Brother's" renewal is no shocker. Even in its 11th season, the long-running reality series grew its audience by 7% among total viewers and 4% in the adults 18 to 49 demographic this summer.

Happier news still for "Sons of Anarchy," which saw a monster ratings jump across the board. The Season 2 premiere saw a huge 94% rise in among adults 18 to 49 (2.8 rating).
