CBS has added an additional six episodes to the first season of Man With A Plan. The top-up amounts to a full season of 19 episodes of the freshman comedy, which premiered on October 24 as a late entry in the 2016 fall season.

While early critical response to the show has been underwhelming, its first three episodes have garnered healthy ratings airing after fellow newcomer Kevin Can Wait on Monday nights.

Man With A Plan is the latest starring vehicle for Matt LeBlanc, who makes his return to network television for the first time since 2004's Joey, which spun-off his character from his career-making series Friends. In the series, LeBlanc stars as a contractor dealing with his new role as a stay-at-home dad after his wife returns to the workplace.
