HOLLYWOOD, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- ABC ordered full seasons of freshman comedies "The Goldbergs" and "Trophy Wife," and four additional episodes of "Super Fun Night," The Hollywood Reporter said.

"The Goldbergs," the semi-autobiographical 1980s-set comedy from Adam F. Goldberg, is averaging 7.5 million total viewers with a 2.7 rating among adults 18-49. Its most recent episode Tuesday drew a 1.7 rating, The Hollywood Reporter said Friday.

"Trophy Wife," also part of the network's new Tuesday lineup, is averaging 5.7 million total viewers and 1.9 rating among adults 18-49. It's the lowest rating of all the network's four new comedies this season, but critical buzz has been strong, the entertainment publication said.

ABC has ordered three new scripts for "Super Fun Night" starring Rebel Wilson. The comedy is averaging 7.4 million total viewers and a 2.8 rating among adults 18-49.

Despite an early order for two additional scripts for "Back in the Game," ABC has decided not to move forward with the series. The semi-autobiographical baseball comedy starring James Caan is losing viewers and averaged 7.2 million viewers and a 2.1 rating.
