Five more series nab season orders

Webs have bestowed full-season pickups on five more shows.

NBC has ordered another nine episodes of “Veronica’s Closet” and “Just Shoot Me,” while ABC has given the nod to its highest-rated freshman series, “Dharma & Greg.” The WB Network has extended a full 22-episode order to “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” from 20th Century Fox TV, and “Smart Guy,” from Walt Disney TV.

Warner Bros.’ “Veronica’s Closet” ranks as the highest-rated new show of the season, thanks in part to its plum post-“Seinfeld” timeslot. The Kirstie Alley starrer has averaged a 21.4 household rating and 33 share and a 16.7/41 in adults 18-49 since its Sept. 25 premiere. Brillstein-Grey’s “Just Shoot Me,” which bowed as a midseason entry last season, has averaged a 12.6/20 in households and an 8.9/23 in adults 18-49.

“Dharma & Greg,” 20th Century Fox TV’s romantic comedy about a couple who marry on their first date, posted its best numbers yet this week, winning its Wednesday 8:30 p.m. timeslot with a 10.5/17 in households and a 7.4/21 in adults 18-49. Notably, “Dharma” built on its “Spin City” lead-in by 23% in the key demo of adults 18-49.

The WB’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” has averaged a 3.2 household rating and 5 share in its sophomore season, up from last season’s 2.3/4 average. “Smart Guy” has averaged a 3.4/6, up slightly from last season’s 3.2/5.
