This just in: 'FlashForward' gets full season

Posted on

flash-forward_lAs expected, ABC has picked up FlashForward for a full season.

The Lost wannabe (and could be) has been a solid performer on Thursday night, boosting ABC’s 8 pm time period 32 percent over last year (when Ugly Betty aired there). Even more impressive, its premiere episode was the first regular program since Friends to beat Survivor in the 18-49 demo.

ABC ordered an additional (and above-average) 12 episodes of the show, bringing its season 1 total to 25.

The FlashForward pick-up comes just days after ABC granted full seasons to freshman comedies The Middle, Modern Family, and Cougar Town.
