NBC is showing faith in freshman series Chicago Fire and Guys With Kids. The network has ordered five additional scripts for both series, TVWise has confirmed.

While having not enjoyed the break out success of either Revolution or Go On (which are the only two NBC series to have received full season pick ups), bot Chicago Fire and Guys With Kids have been solid performers for the network. Chicago Fire premiered to 6.6 million viewers and a 1.9 rating in the 18-49 demo, before slipping an alarming 21% in week 2, only to rebound posting gains of 20% in week 3 with 6.4 million viewers and a 1.8 rating in the 18-49 demo.

The show’s most recent episode was down a tenth in the demo, but still posting gains on its lead in, with 3.8 million and a 1.3 A18-49 rating.
