AceShowbiz - "Grimm" has become the first new NBC drama which gets a back-nine episode order this fall. The fantasy crime series has been picked up for a full season, joining new comedies "Up All Night" and "Whitney".
"This series is turning the traditional procedural drama on its head and is attracting a loyal following for us on Friday nights," said NBC president Robert Greenblatt in a statement. "We love where it's going creatively and we're excited to deliver more episodes to our audience."
Not only that, "Grimm" is also given a shot in the coveted Thursday, 10 P.M. slot. A new episode of the crime series will air on December 8, followed by another original episode in the series' regular Friday, 9 P.M. slot the next day.
Debuted on October 28, "Grimm" attracted 6.5 million viewers and a 2.1 rating in 18-49 demo, which was better than its lead-in "Chuck", although it aired on the same night World Series Game 7 was held. The David Giuntoli-starrer continues improving, averaging 6.9 million viewers and a 2.3 rating in the demo so far.
