ABC has ordered full seasons for three of its freshman series – sitcom Better With You, family genre drama No Ordinary Family and cop procedural Detroit 1-8-7. While all three have been relative ratings winners from ABC’s freshman crop, each has underperformed compared to other veteran shows on ABC and other networks:

  • Better With You remains the lowest rated comedy in ABC’s Wednesday comedy block (last week scored a 2.1 in the 18-49 demo compared to The Middle‘s 2.6, Cougar Town‘s 3.1 and Modern Family‘s 4.7). It has come in 3rd in its timeslot for most of season.
  • No Ordinary Family started strong at a 3.2, but last week could only pull a 2.2. It came in 3rd for its timeslot, but was only ahead of a Glee rerun by a tenth.
  • Detroit 1-8-7 only drew a 1.8 in the 18-49 demographic last week and has come in last at Tuesdays on 10pm for the season. Note: ABC only ordered five new episodes of Detroit 1-8-7, putting its first season at 18 episodes.

Both Better With You and No Ordinary Family remain on the bubble, while Detroit 1-8-7 most likely won’t be returning next season. ABC has also extended Brothers & Sisters order from 18 episodes to a full 22.
