A mere five weeks into its sophomore run, Army Wives has been enlisted for a third season, Lifetimes announced at Friday's TCA sessions.

"Since premiering last year, Army Wives has become a game-changer for Lifetime," said cabler president and CEO Andrea Wong "Announcing this early renewal is a testament to the enormous faith and confidence we have in this show."

This season the Wives are No.1 with Lifetime's target demo of women 18-49, as well as women 25-54, among all ad-supported basic cable series. Plus they are nice to look at. - Matt Mitovich
