I've gotten a lot of emails over the past day or so, but didn't want to post anything until I saw something more official. Now it looks like it really is. CBS has ordered seven more episodes and is open to the idea of more. It even looks like they are going to do other things to promote the show too. (If I were the ungrateful snarky type, I'd suggest that they maybe consider not putting a show on hold for a few weeks and complaining when viewership drops, but that wouldn't be like me at all.)
