ABC orders full season for ‘Invasion’
Invasion is the latest science fiction series to get a full-season order from its network. ABC president Stephen McPherson praised the show for adding creative momemtum and ratings success during its five weeks on the air at the pick-up announcement Thursday afternoon.
The show, which airs Wednesday nights at 10/9c p.m., plays opposite existing hit series Law & Order on NBC and CSI:New York on CBS. Despite that challenge, Invasion has consitently scored higher ratings in the age demographics that advertisers crave.
Because Invasion keeps most of the viewers from its lead-in series, Lost, for the past five weeks, ABC has been ranked No. 1 in viewers aged 18-49, ages 25-54 and 18-34 at 10 p.m. ABC says that Invasion has the best ratings for its timeslot in more than five years for the network.
