Web orders three additional episodes
Fox Broadcasting Co. has ordered three additional episodes of the reality series “Guinness World Records” from LMNO Prods.
The additional episodes bring the total order to 15, with nine consecutive episodes expected to run through late September and six more between October and December.
“Guinness” has been a surprise success this summer, averaging a 5.7/17 among adults 18-49 and a 7.8/13 in households in its three airings, which featured such freakish record-breakers as the world’s largest tumor and the world’s shortest twins.
There’s speculation that “Guinness,” an hour-long show, will be called on quickly if either of Fox’s new dramas — “Brimstone” and “Hollyweird” — fails this fall.
