LOS ANGELES — NBC has ordered four more episodes of its rookie comedy “Guys With Kids."
The back order for the series, from network regular Jimmy Fallon, will bring the show’s first season total to 17 episodes.
The laffer, about a trio of 30-something dads trying to hold on to their youth, hasn’t exactly been a darling of the critics. And it didn’t land plum prime-time real estate this fall, airing Wednesdays after now-defunct newbie “Animal Practice."
Though a quiet performer for the network, the comedy continually grew from its “Animal Practice" lead-in and, since that comedy’s exit, has held steady with “Whitney" taking up the spot. Wednesday’s episode brought in nearly 4 million viewers and a 1.3 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic.
