Now ABC is locked in with full-season orders for four of its new shows. "FlashForward" is now added to the list -- its new Thursday drama. A couple of days ago, ABC picked up a full season worth of
episodes of its new Wednesday comedies "Modern Family," "The Middle" and "Cougar Town."
At 8 p.m., "FlashForward" has already rocketed past "Ugly Betty", which it replaced in the time period.
In its premiere episode it beat perennial time period leader, CBS' "Survivor." -- Wayne Friedman
