Private Practice, Big Bang Theory are Sticking Around

Hope you're ready for more of the Oceanside Wellness treatment: Private Practice has been picked up for a full season. The CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory will also be with us at least through the spring.

They join Gossip Girl as the only new series to get full-season pickups so far. Networks typically only order 13 episodes of a new show so they can see how it does before promising it a time slot for a whole season. CBS also filled out a full-season order for third-year show The Unit.

Both Big Bang and Private Practice have made their mark on the ratings: Practice has gotten about 12 million viewers each week since its premiere and is the No. 1 new show among adults 18-49, while Big Bang has gotten more than 8 million viewers each week and consistently does better than its lead-in, How I Met Your Mother.

Do you think those shows have enough steam to stick around for a full year?
