Fox Picks Up 'Back to You'

October 24, 2007 6:15 PM

Back to You (Fox)Fox has ordered a full season and then some of its Kelsey Grammer 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 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.

Bully for them for renewing the best sitcom in years. Familiar faces like "Frasier" and "Debby"
added up to immediate succdess, and if there is one flaw, it is the disgusting fat guy boss. Who needs him?

Lisa Tooley:

If they keep just plugging in jokes for jokes sake and not develop the characters better and make them more dimensional, this show will be going "back" to where it came from.

stephen:

Hilarious show... i just wished they didn't add the drama factor to the show with the kid...

it's a comedy, not a drama

we all have too much drama going on in our lives already
