OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network has extended the episode orders of two of its series, Our America with Lisa Ling and Welcome to Sweetie Pie's.

The network picked up an additional eight episodes of Our America, bringing its second season to 16 episodes, and 10 more episodes of Sweetie Pie's, brining its first-season order to 18.

Our America is drawing 405,000 total viewers and a 0.36 rating among women 25-54 on Sundays at 10 p.m. Since its premiere Oct. 15, Sweetie Pie's has averaged 388,000 total viewers and a 0.38 against women 25 to 54 at 9 p.m. on Saturdays.
