The alphabet network handed out full season orders today to two sitcoms, Last Man Standing and Happy Endings, as well as Sunday night fantasy drama Once Upon a Time. The latter has been performing particularly well for ABC and is currently the second-highest rated show on the network.
The same can’t be said for Pan Am, the network’s other freshman Sunday night drama. Six episodes have aired so far and the most recent three episodes have registered just a 1.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic. It’s currently the 12th highest-rated scripted show on the network out of 15, just above struggling sitcom Man Up! and Body of Proof.
Though things look very grim for Pan Am, ABC has asked for five additional scripts. Though that’s certainly not as good as the network ordering more episodes into production, it’s a sign that ABC hasn’t given up on the show just yet. Whether those episodes get made will be determined by how well future installments perform.
