Freshman sitcoms The Great Indoors and Man With A Plan, both of which premiered late last month, have been given full season orders by CBS. Each series was given six additional episodes.

The Great Indoors, benefitting in the ratings from its The Big Bang Theory lead-in on Thursdays, stars Joel McHale as a globetrotting magazine writer who is benched from travel and forced to work in an office with a group of millennials. Man With A Plan brings Friends star Matt LeBlanc to CBS’s Monday night schedule as a married man who decides to stay home with the kids while his wife (Liza Snyder) reenters the work force.

Today’s news comes after previously announced full season episode orders for Michael Weatherly’s Bull, Kevin James’s return to CBS in Kevin Can Wait and the reimagining of MacGyver.
