It’s good to be an American Housewife: ABC has given the freshman comedy a full-season order.
The network has ordered nine additional episodes of the sitcom starring Katy Mixon as an out-of-place mom in upper-crust suburbia, our sister site Deadline is reporting. That’ll give Housewife a full 22-episode first season.
Also, ABC has added three episodes to The Real O’Neals‘ second season; that will run a total of 16 episodes.
American Housewife has performed solidly for ABC so far, despite the drubbing it took from critics. It’s Tuesday’s No. 1 comedy, averaging a 1.7 demo rating and recently building on its The Middle lead-in. The Real O’Neals hasn’t been as strong on Tuesdays, averaging a 1.0, but still did well enough to earn a (slight) extension.
ABC already gave full-season orders to Designated Survivor and Speechless back in September. Notorious, struggling on Thursday nights, had its episode order cut from 13 to 10. No word yet on the fate of ABC’s other fall drama, Conviction.
