Emboldened by ratings for the pair of season two premiere episodes that aired Monday, cabler is showing plenty of confidence in both shows.

“Nurse Jackie” drew a combined 1.5 million viewers for the original and repeat telecast an hour later, up 14% from the first season premiere episode and up 19% from the season finale. The 10 p.m.
“Jackie” episode was up 8% vs. last year and is impressive in that the 2009 preem had Showtime laffer “Weeds” as a lead-in. This time around, “Jackie” was on its own.

“Tara” drew 1.1 million viewers for the night, which was on par with the season one premiere.
