FOX Gives Full Season Order to 'Grandfathered'

A day after the network picked up The Grinder for more episodes, FOX has officially ordered another nine episodes of its original comedy series Grandfathered starring John Stamos.

The comedy also stars Paget Brewster, Josh Peck, Christina Milian, Ravi Patel and Kelly Jenrette.

Danny Chun created the series, and executive produces with Stamos and Dan Fogelman. 20th Century Fox Television, ABC Studios and Rhode Island Ave. Productions produce.

The series has been a modest performer in Live+Same Day statistics. However, it does have a solid boost when it comes to Live+7 numbers, averaging a 2.1 rating in the Adults 18-49 demographic for its first season so far.

"Grandfathered had the Herculean task of self-starting on what is an incredibly competitive Tuesday night, and the series has proven itself up to the challenge," said David Madden, Entertainment President, Fox Broadcasting Company. "Since the very beginning, we knew this show would be that rare commodity - a genuinely original family comedy. The remarkable John Stamos, Josh Peck, Paget Brewster, and the entire cast have sparkling chemistry, and the show's creative team has delivered fantastic scripts that keep these great characters moving. We know fans are going to love the surprises in store for the rest of the season."
