NBC Picks Up Three Returning Comedies For 2011-12: The Office, Parks and Recreation and Community

 

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.

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.

TELEVISION: The Emmy Winds Are Changing!

While some things Emmy [ABC, 8/7C] remain the same [Hello, James Spader!], some things Emmy have definitely changed – and for the better [I’m looking at you Mad Men!]. Gold Derby at the Los Angeles Times has handicapped the possible winners for us, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be right. Heaven knows that the Academy does the unexpected often enough to make their award winning selections suitable for bookie fodder. So, then, what follows is the Gold Derby handicapping for each category followed by my selections – not of the winners, but of those who should win in my not necessarily humble opinion…
