Some NBC comedies got a very nice St Patty’s Day present. Community, Parks and Recreation, and The Office have all been renewed for the 2011-2012 season. No huge shockers here but The Office is a teeny tiny bit surprising considering this will be the first season without Steve Carell. I guess NBC wants to see how the show will fare without him. Makes perfect sense, I just wasn’t sure NBC was willing to take that chance. But since most of their shows are awful and not getting renewed, it makes sense that they would keep a solid show….Michael Scott or no Michael Scott.
I guess this may not be good news for Perfect Couple and Outsourced that these were not renewed with the other shows. And bubble shows like Chuck, Parenthood, and The Event are still waiting to hear their fates which may not come until the official announcements in May. I think Parenthood is safe, I think The Event is gone, and Chuck, as always, is a toss-up. I hope Chuck comes back and you know what, each season it finds a way to squeeze itself into the lineup. But who knows.
