Fox pulls 'Justice,' ABC gives 'What About Brian' a full season order

UPI News Service, 11/13/2006 

Just as the Fox TV network was pulling its legal drama "Justice" from its U.S. lineup, ABC ordered a full season of its sophomore series, "What About Brian."

Since premiering this fall, "Justice" had failed to garner respectable ratings in both the Monday and Wednesday time slots that Fox tried it out in, and so the network has announced that the series will be taken out of its lineup immediately, said the Hollywood Reporter.

"Brian" had met with similar disappointing ratings during its freshman season, but ABC stuck with the ensemble drama and now has ordered nine more episodes to give the series a full sophomore season.

The drama from Dana Stevens has managed to retain 100 percent of adults aged 18-34 from its lead-in series, "The Bachelor: Rome," and has improved slightly in overall ratings since its premiere season.

The Reporter said that with "Justice" leaving Fox's lineup, the network will temporarily fill its Monday time slot with repeats of its popular medical drama "House."
