Fox Orders More “Standoff”

Craig Silverstein must be breathing a sigh of relief right now.  Fox has ordered six more episodes of his freshman series Standoff.  Adding to the initial 13 episodes ordered, this brings the total to 19 episodes. 

According to Variety, “Fox opted to order six episodes of Standoff rather than the usual nine because, with Idol and 24, net believes it won’t have a need for more segs, a spokesman said.”

While the ratings have been described as “modest,” they were high enough for Fox to keep it on the air for now.  Perhaps this will give the show the time it needs to attract the audience necessary to get a season two.
