TBS said Monday it ordered nine more episodes of its original comedy “My Boys” from Sony Pictures Television.

The show will go back into production after the beginning of the year and the additional episodes are scheduled to premiere in summer 2007.

“It’s understood that comedy is one of the most difficult forms of entertainment to do well, so it’s a great feeling to know that our first attempt at creating an original scripted comedy series has been so well received,” said Michael Wright, senior VP of original programming for TBS and TNT.

Since launching on Nov. 28, the series has been the top-rated original sitcom on cable among adults 18 to 49.

Starring Jordana Spiro, “My Boys” is produced by Pariah and Two Out Rally Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television. It was created by Betsy Thomas, with Jamie Tarses and Gavin Polone also serving as executive producers.
