ABC orders up more 'Jim'


As expected, ABC is bringing back veteran comedy "According to Jim" for a seventh season.
The network has ordered 18 episodes of the sitcom, which didn't land on the network's fall schedule but remained in serious consideration. (HR 6/11).

Back in May, ABC canceled another long-running domestic sitcom, "George Lopez," but kept "Jim" alive, postponing pickup decision of the Jim Belushi-starring series until after the upfronts. (HR 5/15)

"Jim," from ABC Studios and Brillstein Entertainment Partners, has been a solid performer for ABC, which has struggled to launch a hit new comedy in the past five years.
