NBC Orders Five More Episodes of SEAN SAVES THE WORLD

Deadline reports that NBC has back-ordered five more episodes of its freshman sitcom SEAN SAVES THE WORLD, starring Sean Hayes. This news follows Thursday's report that the network had given an order for four additional scripts.

Read Deadline's full story here.

The series, which airs Thursday nights, has been averaging 4 million total viewers and a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 when factoring in Live+7 DVR returns. Featuring Hayes as a gay single father, the series enjoyed a slight boost in ratings with last week's airing which followed a Saturday Night Live special presentation.

With 18 total episodes, the multi-camera comedy will stay firmly embedded in the Peacock Network's Thursday night line-up into the New Year when it will follow returning series Community and Parks and Recreation.

About the show:

Sean (Sean Hayes, "Will & Grace") is a divorced dad who juggles a lot - his successful but demanding career, offbeat employees, pushy mom, Lorna (Linda Lavin, "Alice"), and weekends with his teenage daughter, Ellie (Samantha Isler). So when his 14-year-old bundle of joy moves in full time, it's a whole new world.

Never one to do anything halfway, Sean's intent on Being the best dad ever, so he loads up on parenting how-to books and plans Pinterest-worthy family dinners. But it seems his company's new owner (Thomas Lennon, "Reno 911!") has decided Sean and his team should work longer hours, putting a damper on his homemaking plans and throwing a kink in Sean's perfectly constructed work/life balance. Ellie, a normal girl who wants to hang with her friends and eat on the run, sees this development as a plus. She loves her dad, but he's clearly going overboard.

From keeping his boss happy, employees motivated and enduring his mother's tactless "advice" to raising a smart, grounded and healthy kid, it's going to be a growing experience, to say the least. But if anyone can handle it all, it's Sean.

Echo Kellum ("Ben and Kate") also stars.
