ABC verdicts on four comedies

Posted on

Good news for The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife, sorta-kinda good news for Super Fun Night, and flat-out bummer news for James Caan.

ABC just announced that it picked up the back nine episodes for the two family comedies but only four additional episodes for the Rebel Wilson one. The Goldbergs starring Wendi McLendon-Covey, Patton Oswalt and Jeff Garlin is averaging 7.5 million viewers and a 2.7 rating in adults 18-49, while Trophy Wife with Malin Akerman and Bradley Whitford is pulling in 5.7 million viewers and a 1.9 rating.

Super Fun Night, in contrast, is averaging a decent 7.4 million viewers and a 2.8 rating — but ABC probably has a little more confidence in where Trophy Wife is going, not to mention how its from ABC Studios. Super Fun Night, in contrast, is from Warner Bros. TV.

And game over for Caan: ABC said no way to the back nine episodes for Back in the Game, the virtually buzz-free comedy which is averaging 7.3 million viewers and a 2.1 rating.

Here are the ratings so far for all the other new shows, and where they stand:

Agents of SHIELD: 11.5 million, 4.5 adults 18-49 rating (full season)
