While it’s not the full-season order fans of ABC’s new Tuesday comedy lineup are hoping for, the network has shown its faith in its young sitcoms by ordering additional scripts.
The Alphabet has picked up three additional scripts for both “The Goldbergs” and “Trophy Wife,” THR reports. Airing behind “Agents of SHIELD,” both series have benefited from the Marvel series’ ratings success, with “The Goldbergs’ ranking as ABC’s best comedy launch in over a year in its first week.
Since premiering, however, all three shows have seen their ratings soften. They’ve managed, however, to avoid the fate of fellow freshman drama “Lucky 7,” which was the season’s first cancellation after two airings in the 10 p.m. hour.
Are you hopeful that both comedies will be given full-season orders?
