2ND UPDATE: The deal for Last Man Standing has closed too, and the freshman series will return for a second season, likely paired with Reba McEntire’s Malibu Country.
UPDATE: Private Practice has now been officially renewed too. I hear the order is for 13 episodes for what will likely be the medical drama’s final season. The pickup means that all of Shonda Rhimes’ three series on the air are coming back, following last night’s renewal of Grey’s Anatomy and this afternoon’s renewal of Scandal. After spending most of its run behind Grey’s, Private Practice was recently relocated to Tuesdays where it took over the slot of Body Of Proof, also just renewed for 13 episodes.
PREVIOUS: ABC has closed a deal with 20th Century Fox TV to renew midseason comedy Don’t Trust The B—- In Apt. 23 for a second season. The deals for two other series, freshman comedy Last Man Standing and veteran drama Private Practice are now being finalized and should close soon too.
