NBC is extending playtime on Wednesday nights. The network has ordered four more episodes of the freshman sitcom Guys with Kids, Deadline reports.

That will bring the series' first-season episode total to 17, five short of the traditional network 22-episode season. The pick-up follows fellow NBC first-year comedies, Go On and The New Normal, which were picked up for full seasons last month.
