So far, it’s been a mixed season for new comedies. NBC’s Truth Be Told had its episode order cut today (and will likely be cancelled) while ABC’s Dr. Ken was given a full season order earlier this month. Now, CBS’ Life in Pieces has been given a full season order as well. It’s been doing well for the network on Monday nights and next week, it moves to Thursdays.
Here’s the press release:
