A fresh press release ("fresh release"?) from the CW network:

"The CW network has picked up the back nine episodes of freshman comedy The Game and returning drama 7th Heaven, giving each series a full-season order, it was announced today by Dawn Ostroff, President of Entertainment."

Since many of you are about to ask: No, no word yet on Veronica Mars, which this week drew about 200,000 more viewers than the Camdens, against what I would say is more formidable competition ( The Unit, Law & Order: CI, Dancing with the Stars). However, I did just get off the horn with Tina Majorino (Mac), who is filming Episode 9 right now and said the ratings thus far are encouraging: "We're thinking we're going to be OK, but we're crossing our fingers."
