NBC has given some good news for a change to one of its dramas this season, ordering six additional episodes for Season 2 of Harry's Law. The courtroom series is the first drama on the peacock network this fall to receive an order for more scripts. Newcomer The Playboy Club has already been cancelled.

Harry's Law has struggled in the ratings so far in its sophomore season, not faring any better than the aforementioned The Playboy Club in the adults 18-49 demographic, leading to speculation that it could be next to get the axe. Viewership, however, may have been the deciding factor as to why NBC is showing confidence in the series.  Over 7 million households have tuned into each of its three episodes so far, with the numbers slightly increasing with each airing.
