Fox Picks Up 'Fringe' For Full Season

Fox has picked up JJ Abrams' sci-fi series 'Fringe' for a full season.

The network made the announcement on Wednesday, after the show had another good showing in the Nielsen ratings on Tuesday night. 'Fringe' has averaged 10.7 million viewers so far in its young season.

Having the lead-in of 'House' since its second week has definitely boosted the show's audience, especially in the coveted 18-49 demographic, and it currently ranks as the top freshman series in that area.

With an additional order of nine episodes, 'Fringe' joins '90210' as the only two new shows to receive a full season order, but CBS' 'The Mentalist' shouldn't be far behind with impressive numbers in its first two episodes.

Abrams says that's he's 'thrilled' about the full season order: "We're thrilled to get the full-season order. As with many new series, 'Fringe' is just starting to find its groove."

"Knowing we'll be around beyond the first thirteen episodes means we'll get to realize the full potential of the show, and for that we are extremely grateful."
