Looks like the "Life Unexpected" / "One Tree Hill" crossover event worked! I wasn’t alone in watching what was easily my favorite episode of the season so far—the show hit a season high with 1.7 million viewers this week, beating the season premiere high of 1.65 million (although, for added context, the series premiere last winter brought in 2.82 million viewers).
Aside from being the most watched episode, the series was further rewarded in an order for more episodes. EW.com reports that two more scripts, on top of the initial 13, were ordered by the CW. Show creator Liz Tigelaar, who based the concept loosely on her own adoption experience, was clearly happy when the news broke today. Tigelaar has been campaigning and hosting live chats on Twitter all season to increase viewership for "LU." We now have 10 more episodes to go!
Are you excited we'll be getting a few extra "Life Unexpected" episodes this season?
