LOS ANGELES -- LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fox says the plum post-Super Bowl slot next February will be filled by two of its comedies.

"New Girl" and freshman series "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" will air on Fox after the game that's typically TV's most-watched program and a big promotional platform for other network fare.

Fox gave "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" another vote of confidence Friday, announcing that it's ordering nine more episodes for a full season of 22 episodes. The Tuesday night sitcom stars Andy Samberg as a footloose police detective and Andre Braugher as his precinct captain.

The sitcom is doing especially well with upscale viewers and young men, Fox said.

"New Girl," a relative veteran that debuted on Fox in 2011, stars Zooey Deschanel.

It and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" will air immediately after the Super Bowl on Feb. 2.
