ABC has ordered a full season of episodes of prime-time comedy Black-ish, starring Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross, and drama How to Get Away With Murder, produced by Shonda Rhimes and starring Viola Davis. The latter was a ratings bonanza right out of the gate, drawing 14 million viewers for its first episode.
