TELEVISION: Rejoice Skiffy Fans! FRINGE Renewed For Third Season!

Fox TV has given TV’s second-best sci fi series [behind only Lost] the thumbs up for a third season, according to Entertainment Weekly’s Lynette Rice.

The series which averages under eight million viewers per week has still managed to give Fox a presence its new timeslot on Thursdays – and the network is showing its appreciation for both the high-quality series and its fervent fan base [kind of like they did with Dollhouse, only with a series that has better than three times as many viewers].

Maybe we’ve reached a tipping point where quality and economics and audience can co-exist – after all, NBC renewed Chuck, this season, which has a similarly-sized audience. Two shows might not seem like a trend, but with TV’s increasingly fragmented audience, they could be enough.
