Exclusive: CBS Extends 'The Mentalist'

Posted on

Thementalist__lEven a fake psychic could’ve seen this coming: CBS has inched closer to granting a full-season order to its freshman smash The Mentalist, ordering six additional scripts for the Simon Baker-led drama.

The move comes as The Mentalist has emerged as this season’s only surefire hit. In its first two outings, the show has won its time slot with an average 15.4 million viewers.

An official back-nine order, which would bring The Mentalist‘s season 1 episode total to 22, could come as early as this week. Meanwhile, I’m still on the fence about whether to season-pass this thing. Please submit your pro/con arguments below.
