ABC Orders More Scripts for ‘Super Fun Night,’ ‘Back in the Game’

Alphabet offers some encouragement to frosh Wednesday comedies

ABC has ordered two more scripts apiece for Wednesday frosh comedies “Super Fun Night” and “Back in the Game.”

The script orders amount to a small vote of confidence for two shows in their infancy.

Super Fun Night,” the Rebel Wilson starred from Warner Bos. TV, has done a middling job of holding on to its “Modern Family” lead-in at 9:30 p.m. “Back in the Game,” from 20th Century Fox TV, has had a little more traction in the 8:30 p.m. berth behind “The Middle.”

ABC has yet to give full-season orders to any new shows other than buzzy drama “Marvel’s Agents of Shield.”
