RENEWAL ALERT: Sleepy Hollow
FOX has made a very quick move in renewing new hit drama Sleepy Hollow for a second season. They are choosing to go with a second 13 episode season next fall instead of expanding this season to 22 episodes. This is an interesting move as it patterns the cable set-up of shorter seasons that FOX also does with The Following and is planning to do with future dramas. I don't think there's anything wrong with this model especially for a network like FOX which has limited space anyway. It also shows some potentially necessary restraint. Sleepy Hollow premiered to a surprise 10.1 million viewers and 3.5 demo. Its third episode this week had 8 million viewers and a still strong 3.0 demo. It's only been three weeks but this show looks like the real deal. Sleepy Hollow joins Glee and Bob's Burgers as early FOX renewals for next year.
