LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- The WB is rallying behind "What I Like About You" and "One Tree Hill," as the network has confirmed it has ordered additional episodes of each series this season.
Said orders are for two extra episodes of "What I Like About You" and one additional installment of "One Tree Hill," bringing each series' respective total to 24 and 23 episodes.
"Hill," which debuted to just 2.5 million viewers in September 2003, has rebounded to become the WB's third most-watched series (4.56 million viewers on average), behind only "7th Heaven" (5.87 million) and "Gilmore Girls" (4.92 million).
As for "What I Like About You," the show's February 11 airing hit season highs among all 12-34 and 18-34 demographics as well as won its time period in women 18-34 and women 12-34.
The pair, along with "Blue Collar TV," are set to be the only WB series to go beyond the broadcast networks' traditional 22-episode order this season.
"Charmed," "7th Heaven" and "Reba" - all of whom have produced 23-episode seasons as of late - will actually shoot 22 installments each this season.
