FULL SEASON ALERT: Lethal Weapon
FOX handed out a full season to Lethal Weapon. A full season for Weapon means 18 episodes just as it did for This is Us. Getting less than 22 or 24 episodes used to be a bad sign but we're in an era with smaller episode orders for many hit shows including Weapon's lead-out, Empire, which also has 18 episodes. This probably means that FOX is sticking with its plan to air Star and Shots Fired in the winter before returning to Empire and Lethal Weapon in the spring.
