Fox announced today that four additional episodes have been ordered for Season 1 of The Mick. The good news comes after a strong start to the freshman comedy, which premiered on News Year's Day before moving to its regular time slot on Tuesday nights.

The Mick stars Kaitlin Olson, best known for playing Sweet Dee in FXX's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, in her first leading role on network television. In the new series Olson plays Mickey - an overbearing hustler from Rhode Island who is unexpectedly given guardianship of her estranged sister's three high-maintenance children.

Today's top-up extends the first season of The Mick to a total of 17 episodes. While new episodes typically air Tuesday nights, look for a special airing this Sunday following the hour-long episode of The Simpsons.
