CBS has extended the life of its new comedy “Life in Pieces.”

The show got a back-nine order on Tuesday, becoming the network’s second new series (after “Limitless”) to score a full season. The show follows several generations of a large family in short vignettes each week.

“‘Life in Pieces,’ with one of the best ensemble casts on television, is telling terrific stories in a very unique way,” CBS Entertainment president Glenn Geller says in a statement. “We’re excited to tell many more of them this season.”

“Life in Pieces” has drawn a 2.06 same-day rating in adults 18-49 thus far, following “The Big Bang Theory” on Monday nights. The first three episodes bumped up to 2.9 in the Live +7 ratings.

The show was off this week for the premiere of “Supergirl” and will make the move to Thursdays starting Nov. 5 now that CBS’ Thursday NFL package is coming to an end.
