ABC has ordered nine additional episodes for the first season of American Housewife after a strong start to the Tuesday night comedy. The pickup makes it the network's second freshman comedy of the fall to earn a full-season.

Through its first four episodes, American Housewife has become ABC's top-rated series on Tuesdays, consistently besting its lead-in The Middle. In fact, the show is Tuesday night's #1 comedy across all broadcast networks.

American Housewife stars Katy Mixon as an average wife and mother who is bringing up her family in the upper-class town of Westport, Connecticut. The additional episode order gives the show a total of 22 episodes for its first season.
