Grandfathered The Grinder Scripts

Fox's Grandfathered, The Grinder Receive Order for 6 Additional Scripts

Fox is extending a vote of confidence to freshman comedies Grandfathered and The Grinder, ordering six additional scripts apiece.

Despite strong reviews, the Tuesday-night sitcoms have posted relatively modest ratings, although a Fox insider notes that both shows have seen increases of about 45 percent across platforms vs same-day viewing.

Grandfathered and The Grinder air new episodes next Tuesday, before taking a World Series-induced break on Oct. 27.
