NBC is counting on a sophomore series to be “the cornerstone of its next generation of comedies,” according to Variety, which reports that the network gave a full-season order to “Superstore.”

The show, which stars America Ferrera, Ben Feldman, Lauren Ash and Colton Dunn, received an order for nine additional episodes, bringing the total for its second season to 22.

The show delivered a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 for its season premiere Thursday night, based on Nielsen final live-plus-same-day nationals, with 5.5 million total viewers.

“By the standards of NBC’s recent track record with comedies, that was a credible showing, particularly against ‘Thursday Night Football’ competition on CBS,” Variety notes, adding that the 18-49 number was NBC’s best for a Thursday night comedy in almost three years.
