CBS gives full-season orders to 'Unforgettable,' 'Person of Interest'
This might be something Poppy Montgomery will remember for quite some time: CBS announced Tuesday full-season pickups for her rookie crime drama "Unforgettable," along with another network newbie, "Person of Interest."
In "Unforgettable," Montgomery stars as a police detective with the rare ability to remember everything. The season premiered to strong ratings with 14 million viewers and has held steady in its Tuesday time slot.
"Person of Interest," from J.J. Abrams, stars Jim Caviezel as a former CIA agent who reluctantly joins forces with a mysterious billionaire (played by Michael Emerson) who has developed state-of-the-art technology to identify people about to be involved in violent crimes. The series had a solid opening with 13.2 million viewers in its 9 p.m. Thursday time slot.
The fate of the network's Friday drama "A Gifted Man," starring Patrick Wilson, is still unknown. The network pulled the plug on the comedy "How to Be a Gentleman" earlier this month.
