ABC Renews FlashForward

ABC, which picked up freshman comedies The Middle, Modern Family and Cougar Town for the full season last week, has announced a fourth new series pick-up: FlashForward. 

The network has ordered nine additional episodes of FlashForward in addition to the initial order of 13. To date, that makes eight of the freshman class of 22 now committed to air for the full 2009-10 season. 

The others are CBS dramas NCIS: Los Angeles and The Good Wife; and Fox’s Glee and The Cleveland Show, which was initially given a two-season order (and fits like a glove out of The Simpsons and into Family Guy).
