Fox has ordered a full season of freshman comedy Grandfathered, it was announced today by David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.
“Grandfathered had the Herculean task of self-starting on what is an incredibly competitive Tuesday night, and the series has proven itself up to the challenge,” said Madden. “Since the very beginning, we knew this show would be that rare commodity – a genuinely original family comedy. The remarkable John Stamos, Josh Peck, Paget Brewster and the entire cast have sparkling chemistry, and the show’s creative team has delivered fantastic scripts that keep these great characters moving. We know fans are going to love the surprises in store for the rest of the season.”
Season to date, Grandfathered has delivered year-over-year gains, increasing Fox’s average in the time period by +70% versus last fall among Adults 18-49.
In Nielsen’s Live+7 ratings, Grandfathered is averaging a 2.1/8 in that key demographic.
The series is created and written by Daniel Chun and is executive produced by Chun, Dan Fogelman and John Stamos.
You can catch brand new episodes of Grandfathered every Tuesday night at 8PM ET/PT only on Fox.
