Good news for two ABC newcomers, "Revenge" and "Suburgatory," both of which just got a full season order, according to various reports.
"Revenge" started particularly well, and seemed to hold its own against "CSI" -- and of note for Long Island -- it is supposed to be set here (even though it is filmed in North Carolina.). "Suburgatory" also got strong sampling in the sandwich slot between "The Middle" and "Modern Family." So, this leaves then at least one major question: "Pan Am," one of the most expensive new shows of the fall that also got major sampling but slid in subsequent weeks.
ABC almost certainly wants to see what happens this Sunday, and is factoring in what appears to be solid DVR playback.
