NBC Orders Extra Marry Me Episodes

Marry Me on NBC

NBC is sticking with Marry Me, for better or for worse.

The network has ordered five more episodes of its freshman comedy, bringing its first-season count to 18 episodes, our sister site Variety reports.

The series — which stars Happy Endings‘ Casey Wilson and Veronica Mars‘ Ken Marino as a newly engaged couple — debuted Oct. 14 to 7.5 million total viewers and a 2.3 rating, making it broadcast TV’s highest-rated Tuesday comedy since March. Subsequent episodes did 5.6 mil/1.8 and 5.6 mil/1.5, and at last count the laugher drew 4.5 mil/1.3.

Marry Me is NBC’s second fall series to nab additional episodes. The Debra Messing-led Mysteries of Laura recently got a full-season pickup.
