Undercovers stars Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw grace the cover of the October 18, 2010 edition of Jet Magazine.
I’ve been watching the show since it premiered. The pilot episode was somewhat slow but I try not to give up on a show based on the pilot. I thought the episodes after the pilot were better. But the ratings for the show haven’t been that great. Undercovers usually ranks fourth on Wednesday nights in it’s 8:00pm timeslot. I did read in Deadline Hollywood that NBC has ordered six more scripts for the show so hopefully that’s good news.
All remaining freshman series on NBC got some good news today. Three, The Event, Law & Order: Los Angeles and Outsourced, have been picked up for the rest of the season with back-nine orders. A similar pickup for Chase is said to be pending, while I hear Undercovers is close to receiving an order for additional scripts, said to be about 6.
At least it made it past the 2nd episode. A couple of new shows on network tv have already been cancelled and they only aired twice. Nowadays if a new tv show doesn’t capture the number one rating in it’s time slot the networks cancel the show within a couple of weeks.
Anyway I’m sticking by Undercovers. I hope NBC doesn’t bail out on this show. It’s nice watching black folks in leading roles for a change instead of being relegated to the background as the best friend or shoulder to cry on.
