Fall TV: Neighbors, Scandal get orders
The rookie comedy and sophomore drama are the latest to be picked up for a full season this fall.
ABC has handed full season orders to The Neighbors, a rookie comedy about aliens living next door, and sophomore drama Scandal.
The Neighbors airs Saturday night at 10 p.m. on CTV and Scandal airs Thursday night at 10 p.m. on Citytv.
ABC has also ordered additional scripts for its rookie dramas Last Resort, which airs on Wednesday at 8 p.m. on Global TV and 666 Park Avenue, which is on Sunday nights at 10 p.m. on Citytv.
These orders follow news last week that the CW picked up superhero drama Arrow for a full season. The show airs Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. on CTV Two.
The CW also ordered three scripts each for new shows Emily Owens, M.D., which airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. on CTV Two and Beauty and the Beast, which runs on Thursday at 9 p.m. on Shaw Media’s Showcase.
CBS has also placed orders, picking up new dramas Vegas and Elementary for full seasons. The two shows are part of Global TV’s 10 p.m. drama focus this fall, with Vegas airing on Tuesday and Elementary on Thursday in the timeslot.
NBC confirmed the order of five more scripts of the new Jimmy Fallon-produced laugher Guys with Kids. The rookie comedy airs Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. on Global TV in Canada.
These announcements are the latest for the Fall TV season, which so far has seen NBC’s Animal Practice (airing on no set day or time on Global TV in Canada) and CBS’s Made in Jersey (Friday night at 9 p.m. on Global) pulled from the schedule.
Other new shows confirmed for a full season include NBC’s new J.J. Abrams drama Revolution (Monday nights on Citytv at 10 p.m.), Matthew Perry-starring comedy Go On (Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. on Global) and family-centric laugher The New Normal (Tuesday nights at 9:30 p.m. on CTV). Charlie Sheen’s new comedy Anger Management (Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. on CTV) also received an early order for 90 episodes from its producer, FX.
