It's simple. We, uh, extend the Gotham.gotham-02

[Mobsters laugh].

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.[1]

The burning question: Is the Gotham production team talented enough to keep that show interesting throughout the extended season?
