Showtime Renews Californication

Premium Cable Network Orders 12 More Episodes of Comedy Series

After only three weeks on the air, Showtime's new comedy, Californication, was renewed for another 12 episodes.

Californication stars David Duchovny (The X-Files) as an author with writer’s block but no trouble getting beautiful women into bed.

The first season continues through October (Monday, 10:30 p.m.), and the network will pick up with the new episodes next summer.

Showtime said Californication has more tune-in viewing than any new series in the cable network's history, and it is holding onto more than 90% of its Weeds lead-in.
