Meanwhile, ABC orders five additional scripts for its new series 'Pan Am', but has not made any commitment to produce them yet.
"Once Upon a Time" and "Last Man Standing" have joined the club of new shows which get a full-season pick-up. ABC gives back-nine order for the drama starring Jennifer Morrison after only two episodes aired, but it shouldn't be a surprise since the show has been dubbed the highest-rated new drama in this fall.
Responding to the happy news, Ginnifer Goodwin who plays Snow White on "Once Upon a Time" tweets, "We just got picked up! That means there's a whole lotta #OnceUponATime in store for y'all! Aaaaaaaa!"
"Last Man Standing", which marks the return of Tim Allen to starring role on TV, debuted to 13.19 million viewers. It gradually lost its viewers in subsequent weeks, but still maintains a decent rating for ABC on Tuesday at 8 P.M.
Also getting a full-season order is "Happy Endings". The comedy, which has entered its second season in September, was given additional episode order of 6 scripts in October before it is picked up for a full 22-episode of season 2.
Meanwhile, another rookie "Pan Am" receives an order for 5 additional scripts, but ABC has not made any commitment to produce them. The show has recently got new showrunner Steve Maeda who is expected to help improve the series in the coming weeks.
