ABC has ordered three additional scripts each for Friday comedies Last Man Standing and Malibu Country according to a report on Deadline.

Update: ABC gave a full season order for Nashville.

    Deadline’s also reporting that Nashville has gotten a full season order.

    not surprising…but i don’t think the ratings has stabilized for either show after last weeks declines…

  • Feedback

    So they reduce the episodes for Family Tools and increase them for these shows? Seems counter-productive to me.

  • Harry

    Pretty good decision it will lead to a predictable full season renewal in a matter of weeks.

    When you got a hot daughter like Mandy who fails high school you have to keep that on air.

  • Dan

    No surprise both will get full seasons of they stay at ther very well performing levels although I thought LMS already had a full season order.

  • Ram510

    How many episodes do they each have this season?

  • rob60990

    13 episodes right now.

  • Nick

    No way LMS does nOt get a back 9. The show is perfect for syndication.


    Why watch a cheap imitation in syndication when Home Improvement can still be seen on multiple channels throughout the day? Same goes for MC and Reba!

  • david

    Not to surprised about this news. and good point Home Improvement is on TBS every morning and Reba is on ABC Family and CMT every afternoon.

  • Joe

    Did we know LMS didn’t have a full-season renewal? I don’t remember that being reported.

  • Mike S

    In 2 weeks, I bet ABC will announce a full season order for both shows. I also think that come Spring they will change their Friday schedule, to have 4 comedies on, followed by Shark Tank.

  • JR

    Wasn’t Shark Tank a 10 p.m. show when it started? I don’t know if I’d throw it that late again. 9 p.m. looks like a good time for it, thus far.
