Opener helps reup ‘Closer’

Second-season premiere's high ratings have held up

TNT has renewed “The Closer,” its hit police-procedural series, for a third season of 15 episodes, following record-breaking numbers for the show’s second-season premiere on June 12.

Michael Wright, senior VP of original programming for TNT and TBS, said “Closer” has “proven it is one of the most entertaining shows on television.”

On June 12, “Closer” engineered the biggest audience delivery ever for the cablecast of an original scripted series. The numbers have held up in subsequent weeks.

Exec produced by Greer Shephard, Michael M. Robin and James Duff for Warner Bros. TV, “Closer” stars Kyra Sedgwick as a Southern-born-and-bred detective transplanted to Los Angeles to take charge of the homicide division.
