ABC Gives Full Season Orders to ‘The Goldbergs’ and ‘Trophy Wife’

By

ABC is doubling down on a couple of its new sitcoms. The networks has ordered extra nine episodes of both The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife, giving them a full 22-episode season. Rebel Wilson’s Super Fun Night, meanwhile, has been given another four episodes. Baseball sitcom Back in the Game didn’t receive any extra episodes, effectively canceling the series when its 13-episode run ends.

The Goldbergs has been doing well so-far this year at building an fanbase while Super Fun Night has struggled to maintain the audience of its lead-in, Modern Family. Trophy Wife, which debuted with virtually no advertising, hasn’t done great in the ratings, but had a fairly good critical response. It’s also the only one of the new four sitcoms owned by ABC, giving the network a bit more incentive to invest in it.
