It's not earning the plaudits of its more vigorous stable-mate, Arrow, but Beauty and the Beast is doing well enough that The CW has picked up the back end, bringing the series up to a full season order.

To date, Beauty and the Beast is averaging a 0.9 rating with the network's target adults 18-34 demographic as well as 2.4 million total viewers.

So far, that means all the surviving new sci-fi/fantasy series, each having started out with an initial half-season orderave been beefed up to a full 22 episodes. So we'll be getting a full freshman season for Revolution, Arrow, and The Neighbors as well as Beauty and the Beast.

That leaves out only 666 Park Avenue, which, after disastrous ratings and widespread lack of interest, was canceled on Nov. 16, though with its 13-episide original order set to air in its entirety.
