NBC orders full season of ‘Café,’ ‘Mommies’

NBC has cemented its Saturday night lineup, picking up the comedies “The Mommies” and “Cafe Americain” for the full season.

“The Mommies,” from Paramount Network TV, has averaged an 8.4 rating/16 share in its 8 p.m. timeslot.

According to NBC, that represents a 14% improvement in households compared to last season, with increases of up to 35% among key female demographics.

Similarly, “Cafe,” the Valerie Bertinelli starrer from Warner Bros. TV, is averaging an 8.3/15 but has upgraded performance in its slot vs. last year.

In a statement, NBC Entertainment prez Warren Littlefield said the shows have “met the challenge” of a difficult assignment opposite CBS’ “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.””Cops” is also a strong player in the hour, while ABC will premiere two sitcoms there, “George” and “Where I Live,” starting Nov. 6.

NBC has now extended full 22-episode commitments to five of its nine new series, including “seaQuest DSV,” which began the season with that order, “Frasier” and “The John Larroquette Show.” Shows still on the fence are “Saved by the Bell: The College Years” (a likely pickup), “Getting By,””The Second Half” and “Against the Grain.”
