Last night, your Eclipsemagazine roving Comic Con Reporter was at the NBC Network Party with bells on. Yes, real bells on a cute blue bracelet I bought on a shopping trip. The party was held at the Hard Rock hotel in the Gaslamp District. There was plenty of food, drinks and friendly people from NBC and other press outlets.
There was also a lot of stars from hit NBC shows like ‘Community’ and ‘Chuck’. And of course stars from the new NBC supernatural themed series, ‘Grimm’. Cody Deal, star of the SyFy Channel original movie ‘The Almighty Thor’, was also on hand to chat with everyone.
Everyone was super friendly and happy to talk to fans and press alike. Because I wasn’t able to take each and every reader of Eclipsemagazine with me to the party to meet and mingle with the actors, they were more than happy to take a moment to shout out a hello to all of you.
In part one of article, take a look at the shouts outs from Adam Baldwin, Yvette Nichole Brown and Cody Deal.

NBC has issued pickups for three returning comedy series in 2011-12 that include “The Office,” “Parks and Recreation” and “Community.” The announcement was made today by Bob Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment.
“I am so pleased to renew these three outstanding comedies which are all at the top of their game creatively,” said Greenblatt. “Along with ’30 Rock,’ they represent the best of what the NBC comedy brand stands for in terms of originality, wit, and sophistication. ‘The Office’ continues to fire on all cylinders on the most competitive night of television; ‘Parks & Recreation’ has come into its own this season as the rightful companion to ‘The Office’; and ‘Community’ is one of the freshest comedies on any network and a solid foundation for Thursday night.
“Community” airs Thursdays, 8-8:30 p.m. “The Office” airs Thursdays, 9-9:30 p.m. with “Parks and Recreation” to follow at 9:30-10 p.m. In addition, both “Parks and Recreation” and “Community” were honored last week by the prestigious William S. Paley Festival held in Beverly Hills, California.
As fans of NBC’s Community [Thursdays, 8/7C] may already know, when an episode of the show ends, the story continues on NBC.com. Danny Pudi [Abed] took some time to talk with online press/bloggers about the Spanish Video Assignment webisodes – a series of shorts that comprise Abed and Starburns’ full videos. Following the interview, there are links to a bunch of cool stuff.

NBC announced today that Thursday night comedies 30 Rock, The Office and Community will be back for the 2010-2011 season beginning this fall. In combination with the announcement earlier that Parks & Recreation had been renewed, this means that NBC’s Thursday night comedy block will be intact for next season.
“We are happy to give these early pickups to these critically acclaimed, incredibly funny comedies,” said Angela Bromstad, President, Primetime Entertainment, NBC and Universal Media Studios.
So far, along with giving Chuck the order for its back nine this season, that brings NBC’s smart decisions over the last three seasons to three. We can only wait to see how the network fares after pilot season.
