NBC picks up 'Guys with Kids'It's all just a joke for NBC. The network has added a sixth new comedy to its slate for next season with a 13-episode order for "Guys With Kids."

The multicamera comedy centers on a group of thirtysomething dads who don't feel mature enough to be parents. The laffer, whose cast includes Anthony Anderson ("Law & Order," " 'Til Death) and Jesse Bradford ("Bring It On," "The West Wing"), comes from Universal Television and Jimmy Fallon's Holiday Road. Fallon will also serve as one of the executive producers.

The news came hours after the network announced its pickup of Dick Wolf's "Chicago Fire," about a team of firefighters.
