NBC’s Shades of Blue is taking on another season:

Variety reported this week that NBC picked up Shades of Blue for a second season. The show’s ratings have decreased slightly week-by-week, but they still show promise because of the star power of Jennifer Lopez.. This past week the show got a 1.09 rating with about 5.4 million viewers.  Lopez has such star power that overall she is carrying the show and it has still been successful for NBC.

Thursday night at 10:00 can be a tough program slot, but Variety also reported that Shades of Blue gave NBC “it’s first Thursday-at-10 wins with in-season regular programming over original competition on ABC and CBS since March 2010 in the demo and since March 2008 in total viewers.”

The number of episodes for season two was not announced, but due to Lopez’s star power season one (13 episodes) went straight-to-series. Variety reported that since Lopez has such a busy schedule it is likely that the second season will also be short.
