Up All Night, along with the network's Whitney, received early season back-nine orders in October; Monday's two-episode pickup brings the comedy's order to 24 episodes.

The Wednesday night comedy, which last week drew 4.8 million viewers and a 1.9 in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demo, in an effort to protect the series from ratings erosion, will shift to Thursday beginning Jan. 12, where it will air after The Office.
