Looks like FlashForward may have no problem making it to its predicted flash-forward future of April 2010 after all. The time-traveling series has been doing so well—even beating out the powerhouse Survivor in the ratings—that ABC has ordered nine more episodes, Variety reported today.

You can thank everyone who recorded it for that—new DVR numbers show that the series picks up an additional 2 million viewers when later playback is included. Those sorts of numbers were enough to increase the audience for the Sept. 24 premiere to 14.5 million viewers—making FlashForward the top new drama among 18-34-year-olds this season.
