ABC has cancelled freshman comedy Back In by denying it a nine-back order, 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.
Clearly, the ABC executives were on the fence about , that other freshman comedy with movie star Rebel Wilson, which got the coveted post- timeslot but was torn down critically and didn’t impress in the ratings. Perhaps a little too soon to make an actual decision, but forced to do something (otherwise any extra ordered episodes won’t be ready in time), ABC gave the struggling show four more episodes to prove itself.
