The Grinder Earns Another 9 Episodes
FOX have given their new series The Grinder another nine episodes in their first season.
The series opened up to an average of nearly 5 million viewers in it’s first episode, but the ratings have dropped off slightly, and after four episodes have averaged 3.4 million viewers.
It seems a bit of a surprise that the series has been given a back-nine episode order since the ratings haven’t been stellar.
The extra nine episodes will bring the first season’s tally to 22.
The Grinder revolves around Hollywood star Dean Sanderson, Jr. (Rob Lowe) whose TV show was suddenly cancelled. He relocates to his old hometown and decides that, since he played a lawyer so successfully on television, practicing law at his family’s law firm can’t be all that different — much to the frustration of his hard-working attorney brother (Fred Savage). The series also stars William Devane, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, Natalie Morales, Hana Hayes, and Connor Kalopsis.
