We've seen DC Comics' TV superheroes band together to defeat a common foe—and boost ratings in the process. Now, Fox is hoping that a team-up of its own comedy stars can help turn around its season.
It was no surprise that NBC gave This Is Us a full-season pickup on Tuesday—after all, the series had the highest-rated 18-49 debut of any new series last week: a 2.8 rating, which soared to a 4.2 in live-plus-3 numbers.
On the heels of a trio of back-nine orders at CBS, Fox today announced that it has made a full series commitment to its new Monday night sitcom, Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Nine-Nine’s back-nine brings its total order to 22 episodes.
