FOX orders a full season of Grandfathered
Just ahead of a brand-new episode, 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.
In the next all-new episode of GRANDFATHERED, “Edie’s Two Dads,” airing Tuesday, Nov. 3 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX, Gerald (Josh Peck) can’t make it in time for Edie’s interview at the most elite pre-school in the area, so Jimmy (John Stamos) steps in to help out. But once he meets the admissions counselor (guest star Joanna Garcia Swisher), he accidentally starts a lie that takes on a life of its own.
GRANDFATHERED is produced by ABC Studios and 20th Century Fox Television. The series is created and written by Daniel Chun (“The Office”). The series is executive-produced by Chun, Dan Fogelman (“Galavant,” “The Neighbors”) and Stamos. Chris Koch serves as director and executive producer.
