Which New Fall Broadcast TV Show Will Get A Full Season Order First? (Poll)

On Monday, we asked which new Fall broadcast TV show would be canceled first, and today we go the other direction.

Which new Fall broadcast TV show will get an order for a full season first?

For the uninitiated, rookie shows are usually given an order for 13 episodes as an initial commitment, and after a certain level of early success, are typically given an order for an additional 9 episodes to complete a "full" season of 22 episodes (although slight variations from the magic 22 are not uncommon).

These orders typically happen anytime from the start of the broadcast season until about Thanksgiving, but could conceivably go even later than that, for shows that don't premiere next week. The busiest period for these announcements is typically mid to late October.

I believe that Fox's New Girl (on 9/28/11) was the first rookie last season to get a full season order, but as always, am open to correction!

What's your guess for this season?

While this poll allows just one answer per person, feel free to expand your choices in the comments.

    Go On.

  • Greg

    Go On or Revolution.

  • FlorianN

    I think NBC will be the first to order a full season. I’m talking about ‘Go On’ obviously.

  • forg

    With this week’s rating, Go On should be the 1st one to get it

  • SJ

    Go On.

  • Stuart

    I have a feeling that Go On, Revolution and The New Normal will get picked up the same day. With The New Normal and Go On being switched in that press release.

  • Baqinardo

    Go On.

    Indeed, sadly, I waited a bit too long for this poll to be very interesting.

    Damn you, Go On!

    Either Go On or Revolution, although I think Go On will go first as it had already 3 excellent rated episodes, while Revolution had only 1. Would not be surprised if The New Normal got one too, however I think it’ll have it if it mantains ratings next week against full competition (Mindy Project, NCSI:LA and Don’t trust the B)

  • were123

    ^Forgot that Don’t trust the B premieres in October xD

  • Raykov

    Go On and The New Normal will be the first, followed by Revolution

  • were123

    Did Go On already got the full order? Damn that was fast! I remember this happening with New Girl last year xD

  • Petar Ivanov

    Revolution and Go On. From PR point think NBC will renew them together.

    NBC move for two cycles of the voice was so smart move.

  • Riff Rafferty

    Ben and Kate. FOX always rushes to announce these things first for the one show that was getting a full season order no matter what. (That and because neither of their other 2 rookies will be.)

  • Esaul

    I think Revolution with its strong premiere. It did amazing for NBC. But watch it fall. If it isn’t Revolution it’s gonna be Go On.

  • AppleStinx

    I’m taking cover because there will be a flood of posts praising the site for posting a “feel good” poll (renewal vs cancellation, hope vs despair).

  • Alan

    Revolution or Go On

  • FlorianN

    I think NBC will wait for ‘Revolution’.

  • Tom

    Limited to Go On and Revolution since they started earlier (and started well), with Go On probably winning.

    I would be surprised if they don’t wait for another week or two of results before the announcement though.

  • Dan S

    I picked RVN but GOON could just as easily get picked up 1st. Either way both shows will get a full season order.
