TNT renews ‘Perception’ for second season

Procedural stars Eric McCormack as an eccentric crime solver

TNT has given a second-season order to “Perception.”

The crime procedural from ABC Studios stars “Will & Grace” vet Eric McCormack as an eccentric neuroscience professor who helps the FBI solve crimes. Rachael Leigh Cook and Arjay Smith also co-star.

Show, which bowed July 9 and airs at 10 p.m. Mondays, was co-created by Ken Biller and Mike Sussman.

The 10-episode rookie season has been averaging 7 million viewers when including all full-week DVR playback, according to Nielsen. In demos, the show garners 1.8 million viewers adults 18-49 and 2.3 million adults 25-54.

TNT president Michael Wright called McCormack’s character, “a truly unique and fascinating addition to television’s pantheon of crime solvers.”

“Perception” is one of several crime dramas on TNT. “The Closer” ended its seven-season run last Monay, followed by the strong debut of spinoff “Major Crimes.” Both telecasts drew strong ratings.
