Full Seasons For 'Family,' 'Better'

Two new ABC shows just landed full season orders ... and one title was left in the cold.

The network has picked up nine more episodes of superhero drama No Ordinary Family, and its latest Wednesday comedy block entry Better With You.

In addition, the network has ordered five episodes of struggling Tuesday night crime drama Detroit 1-8-7, as well as four episodes of Brothers & Sisters (that latter giving the Sunday night veteran a full 22-epsiode season).

Left without a chair when the music stopped: Wednesday's underperforming legal drama The Whole Truth, which risks joining ABC's My Generation on the cancelled list.

ABC's fall lineup hasn't produced a breakout title, with No Ordinary Family recently coming in forth place in its time period and Better With You ranking as the lowest-rated performer in the network's comedy block. Modern Family has continued to impress this season, however, and Grey's Anatomy has been a dominating anchor on Thursday nights.
