ABC has ordered a full season of its freshman comedy Last Man Standing, which marked comedian Tim Allen's return to prime time comedy.

Four weeks into its run after a mid-October premiere, the sitcom has performed admirably in the ratings so far, averaging just over a 3.0 among adults 18-49 Tuesdays at 8:00pm.

Along with the pick-up of Last Man Standing, ABC also ordered full seasons of Once Upon a Time and Happy Endings. Freshman drama Pan Am fell short of a full season but did get an order for additional scripts.
