The Closer gets a third season

It broke a ratings record for a basic cable original scripted series with 8.3 million viewers. TNT has ordered another 15 episodes for 2007.

I started watching The Closer when it premiered last season because I've always liked Kyra Sedgwick. She plays a great fish out of water as Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson, with her 'Thank Yous' that mean a thousand things and her heinous wardrobe. I think the writing dramatically improved this year over last. Several times last year, I solved the crime at least twenty minutes before Brenda did, but so far this year the writing is more complex and storylines are getting more creative. My one request is to see Brenda fail. She can't knock it out of the park each time with suspects. I want to see how her character reacts to professional failure (we've seen her fail at her personal life time and again).

The "Closer" by far, is one of the best shows on television. I am delighted it has been renewed. Kyra Sedgwick is fantastic as Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson. She swims with sharks and the funny thing is, she is the "dolphin" that "smacks" them everytime. She shows different emotions that are key in developing her character. I'm glad the writers have made her more crediable this year. In fact, the writing is superb to what it was last year. Kudos to TNT for putting it on the air. Now, if we could just do something with all the Law and Order episodes. Too many of them on. Put a little something else into the mix.
