Freshman comedy "Marry Me" has won over NBC execs, who have ordered up five additional episodes of the show.
That brings the series's order up to 18 episodes for its initial season, a big show of confidence from the network that just axed its other two new sitcoms. But while "Bad Judge" and "A to Z" just couldn't connect with audiences, "Marry Me" has drawn a respectable crowd, averaging approximately 6.5 million viewers each week.
Those numbers put "Marry Me" second behind only ABC's "Black-ish" as the most-watched new comedy of the 2014-2015 TV season so far in the coveted 18-49 demographic. "Marry Me" has also bested NBC's only other remaining sitcom, "About a Boy," as the network's most-watched comedy.
"Marry Me," starring Casey Wilson and Ken Marino, airs Tuesdays at 9.m. on NBC.
