'Once Upon a Time', 'Last Man Standing', 'Happy Endings' Get Full Seasons

ABC has given full season orders to 'Last Man Standing', 'Happy Endings' and fairy tale drama 'Once Upon a Time'.

The pickup for 'Once Upon a Time' doesn't come as a huge surprise considering the critically praised series kept just about all its 12.6 million viewers from the premiere for its second week.

In fact, the numbers also helped boost ratings for Sunday shows 'Desperate Housewives' and 'Pan Am'.

The Christina Ricci period drama had been losing viewers since its debut but the improved performance has ABC cautiously optimistic as it put in an order for an additional five scripts. That's not quite a full season but it breathes some life into the jet-setting drama.

Meanwhile, ABC has also given full season orders to 'Last Man Standing' and 'Happy Endings'.

'Last Man Standing' premiered to 13.2 million viewers. That number has dropped to around 9 million in following weeks but the alphabet wants to see how the Tim Allen comedy develops with its largely male audience and respectable numbers.

'Happy Endings', which was almost cancelled season, has garnered around 7 million viewers. However, the network has renewed faith after the series recently matched highs in viewership and the key adults demographics.
