“These four shows have had an immediate impact on our schedule by improving nights, winning time periods and adding more hours of success across our primetime lineup,” said CBS’ Entertainment Chairman, Nina Tassler, via statement.

NCIS: New Orleans ranks as this fall’s numer-one new series, averaging 18 million viewers and a 2.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic each week.

Scorpion is number-two (15 million; 3.6), while Madam Secretary ranks as Sunday’s top scripted drama among total viewers (13.5 million).

Finally, Stalker regularly wins its Wednesday-at-10 time slot among total viewers (9.5 million) and 18-49-year old viewers (2.1).

Earlier this month, Fox also ordered a full season for Gotham.
