This is great news. I was more than certain that the show was getting axed, especially with the American Dad renewal. With a short order (no pun intended) of 13 episodes, I'd expect to see this come back next Spring, once they're run through the gamut of AD/Cleveland episodes early in the fall.
If you got turned off by the admittedly-awful first episode, give it another chance. You won't be sorry.
Yup, me too. The other thing that I found exceptionally weird was that Carol let Rick just unilaterally banish her. In the last 6 months, Rick has totally abdicated his leadership role to be "just a farmer". OK, that's his perogative.
