ABC has gifted two of its freshman comedy series with full-season pickups, while another failed to make the cut.
Tuesday night newbies, the ‘80s-set “The Goldbergs” and the Malin Akerman-starring “Trophy Wife” have both received 22-episode orders, despite low ratings after ABC’s freshman drama “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
The fate of Rebel Wilson’s “Super Fun Night” is a little murkier, as the network has ordered four more episodes for a total of 17, according to TVLine.
The show’s Wednesday night companion, “Back in the Game,” was not as lucky, as the show has been cancelled.
Still, ABC announced plans to air all 13 episodes ordered of the “Bad News Bears”-esque comedy.
“The Goldbergs” and “Trophy Wife” airs back to back on Tuesdays beginning at 9pm, while “Back in the Game” and “Super Fun Night” airs Wednesdays at 8:30 and 9:30 pm, respectively.
