Fox has ordered three additional scripts from sophomore drama “Lieto Me.”
Because the show was a midseason replacement, the crime procedural,which launched behind “American Idol,” received a 13-episodesecond-season pickup.
In its sophomore year, “Lie to Me,” helmed by new showrunner ShawnRyan, has been off to a soft ratings start on Mondays, regularlyshedding a significant chunk of its “House” lead-in.
In the past several years, the broadcast networks regularly orderedadditional scripts in lieu of straight back-nine orders.
This fall, sophomore “Glee,” veteran “One Tree Hill” and freshmen”NCIS: Los Angeles,” “The Good Wife,” “Modern Family,” “CougarTown” and “FlashForward” all received back-nine episodic orders,with only two series, the CW’s new entries “Vampire Diaries” and”Melrose Place,” landing script orders instead.
