The Wonder Years and Home Economics Receive Full Seasons Orders from ABC

Just over a month after their premieres, ABC has handed out its first full season pickups of the season to a pair of their comedies. Freshman comedy The Wonder Years and sophomore comedy Home Economics have both been extended for full twenty-two episode seasons, following initial thirteen episode pickups. Neither show has been a particularly strong performer for ABC in live-plus same-day ratings, with The Wonder Years averaging 0.51 (and recently going as low as 0.39) and Home Economics averaging just a 0.36 (and going as low as 0.29). Despite this, The Wonder Years has been touted by ABC as a strong performer in delayed streaming viewing, while Home Economics has been an internal favorite at the network since its debut. The Wonder Years currently rates as the #4 new series of the season.
