UPDATED: ABC has ordered a full season of Trophy Wife.The good news: A critical darling, the quirky sitcom is the best reviewed of ABC's new comedies and boasts delightful turns from Malin Akerman, Bradley Whitford and Marcia Gay Harden. ABC also gave it a vote of confidence with three more script orders.
The bad news: It's the least-watched and lowest-rated of ABC's new comedies, averaging 4.9 million and a 1.6. And though the name Trophy Wife is meant to be ironic, it might be suffering from the same "good show, bad title" syndrome that afflicted former ABC sitcom Cougar Town.
