LOS ANGELES, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Citing solid ratings growth, CBS has signed new drama "Jericho," featuring Skeet Ulrich and Gerald McRaney, to a full season of 22 episodes, the network says.

The Wednesday night drama has averaged 11.3 million viewers and a 3.4 rating among adults 18-49, boosting viewership 48 percent in a time slot that CBS ran comedies in last season, the Zap2it TV news service reports.

"Jericho," which focuses on how a rural Kansas town is affected following a nuclear explosion that leaves it isolated, has remained strong in the ratings while going against postseason baseball on Fox and NBC's new comedy block, CBS says.
