ABC has ordered even more episodes of the freshman comedy Cougar Town.
The network added two more episodes of the Bill Lawrence-produced show, bumping the first season order to 24, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
The only trouble ahead for the show will be going up against juggernaut American Idol once the Fox reality series kicks off its ninth season on Jan. 12 at 8/7c with a two-hour premiere.
Cougar Town debuted in September to 11.4 million viewers. It has since been averaging about 7 million weekly. Its most recent outing brought in 6.9 million viewers. The Wednesday night comedy block on ABC, which includes The Middle and smash-hit Modern Family, has been leading in the 18-to-49 demographic in their respective timeslots.
Cougar Town returns Wednesday at 9:30/8:30c on ABC.
