NBC’s ‘Bell’ saved by web

NBC has picked up six more episodes of the NBC Prods. comedy series “Saved by the Bell: The College Years,” the network confirmed.

The show, which leads off the Tuesday lineup, premiered promisingly with a 9. 9 rating/16 share, but has since found the water choppy opposite “Full House.”

“Bell” averaged an 8.2/14 in seven subsequent airings while skewing heavily toward teenagers, the narrowest segment of the broadcast audience.

Still, the sitcom has a solid teen following that can be sold to advertisers and extends the in-house “Saved by the Bell” franchise, having been spun off from a Saturday-morning series that continues to air with a new teenage cast.

New NBC series with full-season commitments are “The John Larroquette Show, “”Frasier,””The Mommies,””Cafe Americain” and “seaQuest DSV.”
