ABC Orders Full Seasons for Once Upon a Time, Last Man Standing & Happy Endings

ABC has dished out a few full season pick-ups for several of its new shows. First up is Once Upon a Time. Only two episodes have aired, but the show is averaging over 12 million viewers and a very solid 4.0 in the 18-49 demon. The show also didn’t lose any viewers from its pilot to the second week, which is very rare. As one of my favorite new shows of the season, I hope that viewers will continue to embrace this show and I’m very pleased about this news.

Happy Endings, which originally served as a midseason replacement last season has held well on Wednesday nights, averaging close to 8 million viewers. ABC has decided to pick up the show for a full season.

Tim Allen’s return to the world of television with Last Man Standing also got a full season pick-up. The show is averaging over 12 million viewers and is clearly performing well on Tuesday nights.

Pan Am was not given a full season order….at least not yet. The show premiered well but has lost viewers along the way and isn’t performing as well as the other shows that were given pick-ups. However, ABC has decided to give the show a chance and has ordered 5 additional scripts for the show. Pan Am also has a new showrunner and it’s possible the show could gain more viewers and get a full season order.

    Don’t scrap Pan Am for at least 2 seasons and Once upon a time has unlimited potential… Im liking both and my friends do too. Let the social word of mouth take it’s course!

    It's incredibly unlikely that ABC will be shifting Desperate Housewives to another time after it's spent so many years in the Sunday 9pm spot, especially since it's the final season for the show.

    GCB is not as any more racy than any other show on ABC (I've seen the pilot and it's quite enjoyable). Finally, it's incredibly unlikely that any shows will be moved to Saturday night. Some networks may be alright with airing new episodes on Friday nights, but the chances of Saturday night becoming "must see TV" will probably never happen.
