‘Surface’ gets more air

Peacock orders full season

NBC has picked up a full season of sea-creature thriller “Surface.”

“Surface” has been gaining ground (so to speak) on Monday nights, as its adults 18-49 rating has grown 17% between its Sept. 26 debut and most recent airing (Oct. 10). Late Friday, NBC was still determining the exact episodic order for “Surface,” plotting its season around the Winter Olympics (which will force several weeks of preemptions).

Season to date, the show has averaged a 3.3 rating and 9 share among adults 18-49, and 10 million viewers. “Surface” has consistently rated second in the timeslot (behind CBS) with young adults and viewers, not including sports telecasts.

Josh and Jonas Pate created and exec produce “Surface” for NBC Universal TV. Show stars Lake Bell as Laura Daughtery, an oceanographer who discovers the mysterious deep-ocean creature, while Ian Anthony Dalr and Rade Sherebedgia play the government officials who try to keep the discovery a secret.

“Surface” also stars Jay R. Ferguson and Carter Jenkins.

Still up in the air is Pentagon drama “E-Ring” as well as reality entries “The Apprentice: Martha Stewart” and “Three Wishes.” NBC has already dropped “Inconceivable.”
