'Sean Saves The World': NBC orders five more episodes

sean-hayes-sean-saves-the-world-nbc.jpgIt may not be the typical full season order, but the additional five episodes NBC has ordered of "Sean Saves The World" is nothing to shake a stick at.

The freshman multi-cam comedy, starring Sean Hayes, had been struggling in the ratings since its premiere in early October, but a day after the show posted a 28% ratings jump to match a series high on Thursday (Nov. 7), following a special lead-in from "The Voice," the order came in, Deadline reports.

The 18-episode first season of "Sean Saves The World" falls shy of the 22-episode order NBC gave "The Michael J. Fox Show" out the gate, but it's leagues above the fate of "Welcome to the Family," which received a swift cancellation from The Peacock.
