'NCIS: Los Angeles,' 'Good Wife' get full season orders

llcoolj_ncisla_01_290.jpg "NCIS: Los Angeles" and "The Good Wife" are getting rewarded for being the two highest-rated new shows for the 2009-2010 TV season.

CBS announced Wednesday, Oct. 7 that it has ordered up full seasons of the two dramas.

The spinoff "NCIS: Los Angeles" is the top new program of the season, averaging 17.4 million viewers, despite losing a bit of its audience to "The Biggest Loser" on Tuesday (Oct. 6). It also boasted the second-highest ratings among the 18-49 adult demo out of the new shows, just after "The Cleveland Show."

"NCIS: LA" stars Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J as partners in the special projects group of the NCIS force. Linda Hunt, Peter Cambor, Adam Jamal Craig and Daniela Ruah also co-star.

Julianna Margulies' return to the series drama has paid off as well. "The Good Wife" is the No. 2 new show of the season, averaging 13.69 million. It stars Margulies as Alicia Florrick, the wife of a politician who's resigned after a political scandal, who tries to pick up the pieces by becoming a junior associate at a law firm.
