So, wow. That happened quick. Like, really really quick. Edie Falco’s (The Sopranos) new half-hour dark comedy, Nurse Jackie, on Showtime scored a second season pickup the morning after it aired. Jackie averaged 1.01 million viewers for its premiere 10:30 p.m. airing and then added about 340,000 viewers for an encore.The combined 1.35 million viewers for its two airings makes it the network’s most-watched series opener to date. The series was created by Liz Brixius, Linda Wallem and Evan Dunsky, and casts Falco as a skilled but highly unconventional, painkiller-addicted nurse. Showtime ordered 12 more episodes of the series.
