ABC confirmed Monday that the network has ordered a full season of its rookie drama ‘FlashForward.’ The news follows last week’s pickups for the network’s first-year comedies ‘Modern Family,’ ‘The Middle’ and ‘Cougar Town.’

In its Thursday-night timeslot, ‘FlashForward’ ranks No. 1 among the coveted adults 18-to-49 demo, making it the first regular scripted series since ‘Friends’ to beat CBS’ ‘Survivor.’

The show, produced by ABC Studios, concerns a global blackout that hits mankind, giving people a glimpse into their future.
