NBC’s ‘Guys With Kids’ Gets Order For Four More Episodes

UPDATE: NBC’s ‘Guys With Kids’, ‘Up All Night’, ‘Whitney’ & ’1600 Penn’ Cancelled, ‘Parks & Recreation’ Renewed

NBC has given a back order to freshman comedy Guys With Kids, executive produced by Jimmy Fallon. The pickup is for four episodes, bringing its first season to 17 episodes. The news comes on the heels of the multi-camera comedy posting a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating last night, steady with its last original two weeks ago. Guys With Kids got a tough assignment this fall, slotted on Wednesdays in a self-starting 8 PM comedy block with the now-defunct Animal Practice. It had been the stronger of the two, regularly building onto its Animal Practice lead-in. Of NBC’s four new fall comedies, the network has given three back orders. Go On and The New Normal have received full-season pickups, with Guys With Kids getting a partial order. Both new NBC dramas, Revolution and Chicago Fire, have received Back 9 Orders.

Created by Fallon, Charlie Grandy and Amy Ozols, Guys With Kids stars Anthony Anderson, Jesse Bradford, Zach Cregger, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Erinn Hayes and Tempestt Bledsoe.
