Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

The future for Sarah Connor, if not her boy John, looks bright… er.

Despite somewhat wavering ratings during its second cycle, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles was granted by Fox a full-season order late Friday night.

In its most recent, pre-MLB playoffs outing, T:SCC reversed a downward slide by gaining more than a quarter-million viewers, bringing its audience close to the six mil mark — and nearly matching that of critical darling Chuck.

Thus far this season, Fox has greenlit the far-out freshman drama Fringe for a full season and shelved the sit(non)com Do Not Disturb after a handful of episodes.
