Brooklyn Nine-Nine Gets Picked Up For a Full Season!!
Here’s the story on Brooklyn Nine-Nine from Lesley Goldberg at The Hollywood Reporter posted Oct. 18th, 2013.
Fox is locking up freshman comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a full season.
The network on Friday picked up the Andy Samberg police comedy for a back-nine, bringing the total order for the rookie series to 22 episodes and pairing it with New Girl to air after Super Bowl XLVII in February.
“It’s exciting to see that both critics and fans love Brooklyn Nine-Nine as much as we do,” Fox Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said. “With Andy and Andre [Braugher] out in front of this incredible ensemble, it feels like this show is going to be around for a long time.”
Airing as part of the network’s Tuesday comedy block, the Universal Television series is averaging a 2.1 rating among adults 18-49 through five broadcasts and 4.9 million viewers. The series also has the third-highest concentration of upscale viewers ($100,000 or more) of any new series.
The comedy, which follows guy-themed rookie Dads, lifted Fox’s averages among key male demos by 38 percent and 45 percent. The pairing marks a concerted effort by the network to lure male viewers to its Tuesday comedy lineup, which also includes female-skewing New Girl and The Mindy Project, the latter of which also hails from Universal Television.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine returns with episode 1×06 Halloween on Tuesday Oct. 22nd, 2013 8:30/7:30c on FOX.
