CBS announced today that the first season of Kevin Can Wait has been topped up to a full 22 episodes. The network has ordered nine new episodes to add to its preliminary issue of 13 after a strong start for the new series over its first four weeks on the air.

Kevin Can Wait has been an impressive draw for CBS this season, so far ranking as this fall's most-watched new comedy in both total viewers and among the coveted adults 18-49 demographic. The half-hour series stars Kevin James as a newly-retired police officer who faces a new set of challenges while helping out his family at home.
