ABC has cancelled freshman comedy Back In even though the network recently ordered extra scripts. The 13 episodes that were ordered back in May will still be airing, most likely in the same Wednesdays at 8:30/7:30c timeslot.by denying it a nine-back order,
Both new Tuesday comedies,and did get the coveted nine-back order, which means that both shows have had their episode order upped by nine, to a total of 22 episodes in their first seasons.
