Manifest Scores Full Season Order at NBC!

Manifest will take flight for a few weeks longer at NBC

The Peacock network has handed a three-episode back order to the new drama series, making for a total first season consisting of 16 episodes. 

The backorder comes just four episodes into Manifest Season 1, which has solidified itself as a strong performer in the ratings. Manifest Season 1 Episode 1 debuted to 10.4 million total viewers and a 2.2 rating among adults 18-49 back in September. 

Numbers for the premiere swelled to 18.4 million viewers, and a 4.2 rating with seven days of DVR viewing factored in. These results made it NBC's most-watched drama series debut in 19 years, since the debut of Third Watch

Despite the strong launch, the numbers have softened somewhat, with Monday's episode securing 7.5 million viewers and a 1.5 rating. Still, it was the highest-rated scripted series of the night, narrowly edging out Fox's 9-1-1.
