Among the final broadcast networks to decide the fates of its fall 2013 offerings, ABC has good news for most of its newest sitcoms. The 'Wonder Years'-esque 'The Goldbergs' and Malin Akerman's 'Trophy Wife' have been given full season orders, while Rebel Wilson's critically-panned 'Super Fun Night' has been given additional episodes as well, and James Caan's 'Back in the Game' has struck out altogether.
Super Fun Night
Rebel Wilson's new TV show, 'Super Fun Night,' debuted on ABC this week. Produced by Conan O'Brien with 'State' and 'Stella' alum Michael Showalter co-writing and consulting, the show has all the talent it needs to succeed, but still falls flat. That's okay because shows often take a few episodes to find their footing. But that's not what everyone is talking about; instead, we're all focused on the one thing we shouldn't be: Rebel Wilson's weight.
ABC has finally released their full fall premiere schedule for the 2013-2014 season, admittedly the last of the bunch, and right before the beautiful agony and madness of Comic-Con 2013. The eagerly awaited Joss Whedon pilot, Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' will premiere on Tuesday, Sep. 24, while 'Modern Family' and 'Grey's Anatomy' have been given super-sized debuts.
ABC certainly waited late enough on a Friday night to move forward with its announcements but boy did they populate the 2013-14 pickup list. Not only will 'Once Upon A Time' spinoff "Once Upon A Time in Wonderland' move forward, but so too will Rebel Wilson's 'Super Fun Night,' the high-concept 'Mixology' from creators of 'The Hangover,' and a plethora of others.
