The CW Orders More 'Game,' 'Heaven'
The fledling network has picked up the back nine episodes of the freshman comedy "The Game" as well as giving a full season order for the long-lived family drama "7th Heaven."
"The Game," a sitcom about a woman (Tia Mowry) adjusting to life as a pro football player's live-in girlfriend (Tia Mowry) while juggling her med school studies, has performed well in the post-"Girlfriends" slot, retaining 95 percent of women 18-34. The show also stars Coby Bell, Pooch Hall, Hosea Chanchez, Brittany Daniel and Wendy Raquel Robinson. "The Game" is part of the Monday night comedy line-up that also includes "Everybody Hates Chris" and "All of Us."
"The Game" is only one of the two new shows that debuted on the CW this fall. "Runaway," a drama about a family on the lam, only lasted three episodes before getting pulled.
"7th Heaven" marks its 11th season on television and stars Stephen Collins, Catherine Hickes, Beverly Mitchell and George Stults. This season also adds Tyler Hoechlin and Haylie Duff as regulars.
