  • CrimTV

    YES! Apparently the pilot wasn’t very good, but ABC couldn’t refuse because of Rebel Wilson. :D

  • Jake

    Rebel Wilson!

  • ZmaX

    Super Excited! Rebel Wilson is awesome :)

  • Davis


  • ryan

    Awesome news! I have heard the pilot was not that good, but lots of people are going to check out Rebel Wilson

  • Jayson

    No one can refuse Rebel Wilson! :)

  • Survivor Fan

    This is like Christmas morning for TV fans, with renewals, cancellations, revivals (24), and pickups. One of the most exciting nights of TV every year

  • Scandalous

    Wednesdays at 9:30 after MF?

  • forg

    Could get the post MF slot?

    I dunno if they are overestimating Rebel’s draw with people, I mean Melissa McCarthy is a box office star but Mike & Molly,although it does good, is not a ratings blockbuster. Let’s wait and see

  • gwen

    Oh ok i suppose ill wait and see with this one,she’s not someone i go out of my way to watch but well who knows at this point.

  • Glue

    Rebel Wilson is the star?! Cool! If the pilot is bad, people will tune out. It could have a large audience for episode one then fall because of the bad episode. Maybe consider airing one of the other episodes as episode one?

  • Tony

    Having had to watch the pilot for a survey, I can confirm the pilot is not good.

  • KJ Styles

    Happy about this being picked up after CBS turned it down last year.

    I like the premise because it reminds me of how I used to be in my teens and early 20’s. I will give this a shot. I hope this gets the Modern Family lead in.

  • Rebecca

    Looking forward to Rebel Wilson, I’ll see how it goes.

  • KT

    Back in the Game is the series with Maggie Lawson in it, correct? Not good news for the future of Psych :(

  • Davis

    what is mind games?

  • rob60990

    Mind Games was Influence.

  • Scandalous

    Mind games – formerly known as Influence.

  • Dan S

    I’m thinking ABC might pair up Super Fun Night with Suburgatory. Either on Mon or Tues depending on whether DWTS is moved to Sun or not. I see Back in the Game after MF & Goldbergs after LMS. Overall there should be plenty of surprises when the networks announce what their schedules will look like next week.

    So ABC has picked up a little Rebel? Good for them. Maybe they can make it work where it didn’t for CBS.
