Three out of four isn’t bad. CBS has ordered the back nine episodes of three new comedies, “The Millers,” “The Crazy Ones” and “Mom,” after canceling “We Are Men” earlier this month after just two episodes

Both “The Millers” and “The Crazy Ones” increased their ratings Thursday compared with last week, while “Mom” was down a bit on Monday.

None of the pickups are surprising.

“The Crazy Ones,” featuring veteran comic Robin Williams’ return to network television, is the fall season’s top new comedy, bringing in an average audience of more than 13.7 million and a rating of 3.6 in the key 18-49 age demographic, according to Nielsen. 

Will Arnett’s “The Millers,” which benefits from a cushy lead-in by “The Big Bang Theory” on Thursdays, has drawn an average of more than 12 million viewers.

“Mom,” which stars Faris and Allison Janney and was created by Chuck Lorre, airs on Mondays to an average audience of nearly 8 million.

The three comedies join NBC’s “The Blacklist” and ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” in receiving full-season orders. Also, Fox has renewed “Sleepy Hollow” for a second season.
