TNT Renews ‘Men of a Certain Age’ for a Second Season

TNT has renewed its critically acclaimed hit series Men of a Certain Age for a second season. The wry drama stars Emmy winner Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond), Emmy winner Andre Braugher (Homicide: Life on the Street, TNT's Salem's Lot) and Golden Globe winner Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap, Star Trek: Enterprise). Men of a Certain Age currently airs Mondays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT). TNT has ordered 10 episodes for the second season.

"Men of a Certain Age has been embraced by viewers and critics alike, making our decision to renew an easy one," said Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "Men of a Certain Age blends insightful storylines, highly relatable characters and top-notch performances from Ray Romano, Andre Braugher and Scott Bakula. We look forward to continuing our wonderful relationship with everyone involved."

Men of a Certain Age explores the unique bonds of male friendship among three men approaching mid-life. The show focuses on Joe (Romano), a friendly, 40-something, slightly neurotic, recently separated father of two who had dreams of being a professional golfer but instead owns and runs a party store. He has two best friends: Owen (Braugher), an overstressed husband and father who is a car salesman at his dad's dealership; and Terry (Bakula), an offbeat, handsome, intelligent and still-struggling-to-make-it actor.

Men of a Certain Age, from TNT Original Productions, was created by Romano and fellow Everybody Loves Raymond Emmy winner Mike Royce. They serve as executive producers, along with Rory Rosegarten and Cary Hoffman. Through its first five episodes, Men of a Certain Age is averaging 4.4 million viewers. The show's Dec. 7 premiere ranked as ad-supported cable's top new series launch of 2009 among households and adults 25-54.
