ABC has picked up the Sunday night drama “Brothers & Sisters” for a full season order, the network announced Monday.

Last night the episode won the 10 p.m. hour in adults 18 to 49 with a 4.9.

“‘Brothers & Sisters’ is a great addition to our Sunday night lineup and has given us a strong complement to ‘Desperate Housewives,'” Stephen McPherson, president of ABC Entertainment, said in a statement.

The freshman series, which stars Calista Flockhart, Rachel Griffiths and Sally Field, is the second-highest-rated new series of the season among adults 18-49.
