Scoop: 'Privileged' inching closer to pickup?

Joannagarcia_lThere’s new evidence to suggest that The CW may be close to doing the right thing (read: season 2 renewal!) where Privileged is concerned.

A source close to the show confirms that the network has decided to run repeats of the cult fave on Fridays at 8 pm/ET throughout the summer. Why would The CW waste an hour of its schedule on a show that had no future? It’s simple: They most likely probably wouldn’t.

“It’s definitely a positive sign,” acknowledges a Privileged insider, who
quickly adds that there’s still no official word about a pickup.
Indeed, a CW rep insists no decision has been made about the show’s future.

Still, with this new development coming so closely on the heels of a report that the show may be back as a midseason replacement, momentum has clearly shifted in Privileged’s favor.

The promising word of mouth has even trickled down to co-star Sharon Lawrence, who plays
mom to Joanna Garcia’s Megan. “I heard it may have a life,” she told me
earlier today, “which is great!”

Anyone else think it’s great? I’ll go first: I do! Okay, your turn…
