Now that's a commitment!


TBS has ordered 90 additional episodes of its freshman sitcom "Are We There Yet?"

The scripted comedy cable network will bring back the Ice Cube and Matt Alvarez-produced series after its initial 10-episode run this summer.

The massive reorder was triggered as part of the show's increasingly common dealmaking structure, a system pioneered by Tyler Perry and Debmar Mercury's comedies on the network.

" 'Are We There Yet?' attracts a young, diverse audience, making it an especially good fit for our Wednesday night slate of original sitcoms," said Michael Wright, head of programming at TBS.

Since its June 2 premiere, the comedy has averaged 2.8 million viewers and 1.5 million adults 18-49.

That's like five seasons worth of episodes. Is that some sort of record?

TBS airs new episodes almost year-round (unless I'm mistaken and they changed recently). So that's not a whole lot.

They did this with, as mentioned in the article, House of Payne and Meet the Browns.

Ah, ok.
You usually just hear about a show being picked up for a whole season if the first few episodes do well. Man, being a sitcom writer must be the easiest job in the world.

Episode 60: Teenage daughter goes on first date
Episode 61: Dad loses wedding wing in a wacky place (not the butt)
Episode 62: Wacky uncle overstays his welcome
etc.

Mad Men won't hit the 90th episode for four more years.

TBS apparently values quantity over quality. Although to be honest I have never seen Are We There Yet. Maybe it's just as good as, if not better than, Mad Men.

They play like two new episodes a week most of the time. I watched House of Pain for a while. I regret every minute of it.

It's got Ice Cube as executive producer so I'm sure its better than Mad Men and Breaking Bad COMBINED.

So I'm going to guess they're not there yet.
