NBC picks up ‘Fitzgeralds’

Skein averages 4.5 rating, 12 share among adults 18-49

It’s the luck o’ the Irish: NBC has picked up four more episodes of midseason laffer “The Fighting Fitzgeralds,” which keeps the show on the air through May sweeps.

The Peacock had previously ordered six segs of the ATG/NBC Studios-produced comedy, which stars Brian Dennehy as the father of three adult sons; the additional order brings the season total to 10 episodes.

The series, which debuted March 6, has averaged a 4.5 Nielsen rating and 12 share among adults 18 to 49, and 10.9 million viewers after two episodes.

“This has been a passion project,” said ATG prexy Eric Tannenbaum. “We even shot two pilots. I really like this show. The cast is great, and each episode gets better and better.”

Tannenbaum said Billy Joel is in talks to guest star in an upcoming episode, while exec producer Ed Burns is also on tap to guest star. Besides Burns, Brian Burns also serves as an executive producer with Phoef Sutton (“Cheers”). Dennehy is the co-executive producer.
