That was fast.

After just one episode, Showtime has green lighted a second season order of Nurse Jackie, following last night's series premiere of the Edie Falco drama. It became Showtime's most-watched series premiere in history.

Nurse Jackie was seen by one million viewers; it then earned another 350,000 during its same-night repeat for a total of 1.35 million viewers.

Weeds, which also premiered last night, saw approximately 1.7 million viewers for its debut, and rerun, episodes combined.
