It's simple. We, uh, extend the Gotham.
Fox announced today they've ordered six additional episodes for the first season of Gotham, raising the season order to 22 episodes.
"Gotham is tied as Monday night’s No. 1 drama among Adults 18-49 and is this season's No. 1 broadcast drama overall among Men 18-49 -- a full rating point ahead of the No. 2 drama in that demographic. The debut episode, which exploded into Premiere Week with a 6.0/18 rating among Adults 18-49, outperformed “Blacklist” and “Scorpion” and delivered FOX’s highest-rated fall drama debut in 14 years. This Live +7 rating reflects the largest post-three day ratings gain (+0.9) of any broadcast drama, ever," Fox mentioned during that announcement.
The burning question: Is the Gotham production team talented enough to keep that show interesting throughout the extended season?
