These Join Previously Announced Pick-ups for "Nashville," "The Neighbors" and "Scandal"

ABC has picked up five additional episodes each of comedies "Last Man Standing" and "Malibu Country," it was announced today. These pick-ups join previously announced orders for new drama "Nashville," new comedy "The Neighbors," and returning drama "Scandal."

Since its premiere, ABC sophomore comedy "Last Man Standing" is the top-rated show in Friday's 8:00 p.m. half-hour with Adults 18-49 (2.1/7).
