Red Band Society (Fox)
Fox is keeping its freshman drama Red Band Society in contention for a back episodic order with a pickup of four additional scripts. The hospital drama launched to solid reviews but has been soft in the ratings. Still, a couple of weeks in, its numbers stabilized, and last Wednesday the series (1.0 among adults 18-49 in Live+SD) actually logged a one-tenth week-to-week uptick. Additionally, the drama starring Octavia Spencer has been a major DVR gainer, getting 70-80% ratings increases in Live+7.
