ABC – and Audiences – Like Once Upon a Time and Happy Endings

Once Upon a TimeIf you’re waiting to buy into the fairy tale drama Once Upon a Time or if you haven’t yet found yourself laughing along with Happy Endings, now’s the time to go ahead and give in to your impulses and watch them both. They won’t be going away anytime soon, as ABC has gone ahead and ordered more episodes of both shows. Also getting some love from the network is Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing, which hasn’t caught on with critics but is doing well in the ratings.

The network’s ordered nine more episodes from each of the three shows. And the Pan Am team has been okay’ed to write five more scripts.

Once Upon a Time premiered with 12.6 million viewers and held on to most of that with episode #2. Meanwhile, Last Man Standing has slacked off since launching with 13 million viewers.
