Audience Network Renews ‘Mr. Mercedes’ for Season Three

Audience Network has greenlit crime drama “Mr. Mercedes,” based on the crime drama trilogy from Stephen King for a third season. Ten new episodes have been ordered.
“Mr. Mercedes” tells the story of retired detective Bill Hodges (Brendan Gleeson), who is still haunted by the unsolved case of “Mr. Mercedes.” that invididual claimed sixteen lives when he drove a stolen Mercedes through a line of job-seekers at a local job fair. After brilliant young psychopath Brady Hartsfield (Harry Treadaway), the real Mr. Mercedes, reemerges to focus his attention on Hodges, what begins as an online cat-and-mouse game between the two soon has deadly real-life consequences as an increasingly desperate Hartsfield becomes bent on leaving his mark on the world.
Production is scheduled to begin in early 2019 in Charleston, South Carolina with the premiere launching later in the year. The series is produced by Sonar Entertainment.

Sunday Overnights: Bears’ Victory Over The Vikings on Sunday Night Football Leads NBC to Dominance

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2018
Household Rating/Share
NBC: 9.6/16, CBS: 5.5/ 9, Fox: 4.0/ 7, ABC: 2.7/ 5, CW: 0.8/ 1
-Percent Change vs. the Year-Ago Week:
Fox: +186, NBC: – 9, CBS: -17, ABC: -47
Ratings Breakdown:
It was another easy Sunday overnight victory for NBC care of “Sunday Night Football” (Chicago Bears 25, Minnesota Vikings 20) at an estimated 12.1 rating/21 share in households for the primetime portion. Overall, the game averaged a 12.3 rating in the overnight households and a 6.8 rating in adults 18-49 through its conclusion at 11:50 p.m. ET.
Elsewhere, it was Sunday overnight business as usual. CBS granddaddy “60 Minutes” (#1: 7.6/13 at 8 p.m.) led into a 5.4/ 9 for freshman “God Friended Me” in the 8 p.m. ET hour, which is a compatible fit. And 9-11 dramas “NCIS: Los Angeles” (#2: 5.0/ 8) and “Madam Secretary” (#2: 3.9/ 7) remained a respectable alternative to football on NBC.
On ABC, the non-scripted trio of veteran “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (#3: 3.3/ 6 at 7 p.m.), unnecessary “Dancing With the Stars Juniors” (#3: 2.9/ 5 at 8 p.m.) and “Shark Tank” (#3: 2.6/ 4 at 9 p.m.) led into an encore telecast of “Shark Tank” (#3: 2.0/ 3) at 10 p.m. in place of “The Alec Baldwin Show” (which the network needs to put out of its misery).
Fox, meanwhile, had nothing unusual to report as follows:
