The Goldbergs

ABC has picked up full seasons of its two Tuesday freshman comedies, The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife. Additionally, the network has ordered four more episodes of Rebel Wilson‘s comedy, Super Fun Night.

Despite losing a significant amount of its Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. lead-in, The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife proved themselves when both shows held steady following a repeat episode of the Marvel series, which has already earned a full-season order from ABC. The most recent new episodes of The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife drew 5.4 million viewers and 4.3 million viewers, respectively.

Super Fun Night has had similar problems holding onto Modern Family fans in its Wednesday timeslot following the popular sitcom. This past week, the comedy fell to a series low of 5.4 million viewers following a Modern Family repeat.

Sadly, the news wasn’t so good for ABC’s fourth first-year comedy, Back in the Game, starring James Caan. Executive producer Robb Cullen tweeted Friday that no more episodes would be produced beyond the show’s initial 13-episode order. “So, ABC has decided NOT 2 move forward w [Back in the Game.] 2 all of u fangles and friends, I can’t begin 2 thank u for all of ur support,” he wrote.
