The romantic tension between PJ and Bobby will, indeed, go on! TBS has finally ordered a third season of the critically acclaimed sitcom “My Boys,” which follows the misadventures of a fictional Sun-Times sports columnist who’s in love with, yes, a Tribune sports columnist.

TBS has ordered nine episodes of the series, which is set to return first quarter 2009.

This past summer, PJ struggled to come to terms with her feelings for Bobby, just as he was preparing to get married to the Swedish nanny who works for PJ’s brother, Andy. With the wedding only hours away, Bobby began to realize he might be marrying the wrong girl. We weren’t sure if we were going to see resolution of this plot, though TBS was firm in saying the last finale was a season one, not a series one.

Ratings info from today’s press release:” ‘My Boys’ premiered to critical praise on TBS in November 2006. When the show returned to complete its first season in summer 2007, it scored 22 percent growth among adults 18-34. The series’ second season grew its audience to more than 1.5 million viewers, a 14 percent increase over the first season.”
