Rejoice, friends! Marry Me has been given an order of five more episodes, because apparently that’s how TV is made now. I think in another few years, the networks are going to be asking for five minute increments, just to test the waters before setting a contract for the full episode. “The cold open did well! Can you have the rest of the episode up by the end of this commercial break?” Can’t wait.
The show has had pretty strong ratings, and it was also rated #1 among “upscale” viewers, which is a category I’m sure our classy selves fall right into. So Marry Me’s first season order is now at 18 episodes. Which means we’ll have plenty more of these moments:
Buuuut, not so fast. Just for the fun of raining on my own parade (just a little bit, it’s how I do), I feel the need to mention that the totally mediocre About a Boy is back for a full 22-episode season, and the “so bad it’s still really bad” Mysteries of Laura has also been picked up for a full season. Just so you know what’s going on around us, while we’re celebrating over our five-episode scraps.
