NBC has given a full season order to detective drama "Life."


Sources say the network has ordered the back nine episodes from Universal Media Studios.

The pickup comes despite a modest performance from "Life" this week in the show's new Wednesday night slot -- where it earned a 2.0 rating among adults 18-49 and ranked fourth place in the 9 p.m. hour. "Life" did manage to outperform its recent Friday night average, however, and picks up plenty of viewers from time-shifted DVR viewing.

The full season order is the latest twist in the police drama's odd network narrative: "Life" launched during the fall of last year ... was shut down from the writers strike ... returned this fall to get a "Heroes" welcome on Monday nights at 10 p.m. airing for two weeks after the action-drama series in what's considered NBC's strongest slot ... then NBC shifted to show to Fridays at 10 p.m., a viewership dead zone where the show's ratings crashed ... then swapped "Life" with the underperforming "Lipstick Jungle," where it is now tentpole 9 p.m. drama in a new Wednesday night crime block.
