Looks like it’s not so bad being the new girl.

Fox just announced it has ordered an additional 11 episodes of its freshman comedy, New Girl, bringing the full order to 24 episodes.

The Zooey Deschanel show, which premiered last week and was Fox’s highest-rated sitcom debut ever, held up this week in the ratings, retaining 92 percent of its premiere audience. It also earned an impressive 5.2 rating in the all-important 18-34 demographic.
