ABC has given a full season order to its new drama Revenge. The good news comes one day after the show won its time slot in the ratings against competitors CSI and Law & Order: SVU, earning a 2.7 among adults 18-49 vs. a 2.6 and a 2.1 for the other two respectively.
The freshman series has generated a good amount of buzz with viewers as the new go-to 'guilty pleasure' of the season. ABC has also been pushing to get the word out, running a high number of promo spots for Revenge during commercial breaks in its other prime time shows.
Today's extension tops up Revenge's first season to a full 22 episodes.
