Fox Picks Up 'Back to You'

TVWeek's James Hibberd: Rated

By Published on .

Fox has ordered a full season and then some of its Kelsey Grammar newsroom comedy "Back to You," the network confirmed.

Fox picked up 11 episodes from 20th Century Fox Television, a couple more than the usual back nine, for a total of 24 shows this season.

"Back to You" has stabilized in its Wednesday at 8 p.m. slot and most recently earned a 2.4 rating among adults 18 to 49. Though the show hasn't been a time period titan, Fox expects "Back" will improve once the remainder of the network's cylinders fire up in January with the return of "American Idol." The show has proved to be an able lead-in for "Til Death," which last week had its second-best performance ever without an "Idol" lead-in.
