In a press release issued today, CBS announced that they have ordered an additional six episodes of their new Drew Carey-hosted gameshow Power of 10.
The network will likely use the episodes during the midseason as a fill in for any canceled, or low-performing series.
Power of 10 concludes its summer run this coming Sunday, September 23 from 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
I’ve included the full press release from CBS below:
- CBS ORDERS SIX ADDITIONAL EPISODES OF “POWER OF 10″ FOR MIDSEASON
CBS has ordered six additional episodes of the hit new game show POWER OF 10, hosted by Drew Carey, for midseason.
POWER OF 10, which currently airs on Tuesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) and Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), averages more than eight million viewers per broadcast and, for the last five broadcasts, it has won its time period in all key measures (homes, viewers, A18-49 and A25-54). On Tuesdays, POWER OF 10 has won its time period both weeks since it began airing on 8/28. On Wednesdays, it has won its time period three weeks in a row and four out of the six times it has aired.
POWER OF 10 will have its summer finale on a special night, Sunday, Sept. 23 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), so as not to conflict with the reality series premiere of KID NATION on Wednesday, Sept. 19.
POWER OF 10 is produced by Embassy Row in association with Sony Pictures Television. Michael Davies is executive producer.
