NBC renews Office, Community, Parks

NBC has renewed three of its Thursday night comedies for next season.

The Office, Parks and Recreation and Community will be returning for the 2011-12 television season.

"I am so pleased to renew these three outstanding comedies which are all at the top of their game creatively, said Bob Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment.

Veteran comedy The Office is delivering a 4.0 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic and averaging 7.7 million viewers for its current seventh season. Steve Carell's farewell episode is scheduled to air at the end of April, with Will Ferrell coming on for a multi-episode guest arc.

In the ratings, Amy Poehler's Parks and Rec, currently in its third season, is averaging a 2.8 in the key demo and 5.5 million viewers. With its move to the 9:30 p.m. time slot, the series is up 17 percent in the 18-49 demo (2.8 vs. 2.4) and up 9 percent in total viewers (5.5 million vs. 5.1 million).

Critical favorite Community, which has anchored the competitive 8 p.m. time slot on Thursdays for NBC and is led by The Soup host Joel McHale, has averaged a 2.1 in the 18-49 demo and 4.7 million viewers so far in its sophomore season. Lost star Josh Holloway is set to star in the two-part season finale, a followup of sorts to last season's "Modern Warfare" episode.

With NBC's core comedy lineup back for another round -- it was previously announced 30 Rock will also return next season, making it the show's sixth -- that leaves struggling freshmen comedies Outsourced and Perfect Couples still awaiting pickups.

I tried my best to stay away from Parks because I don't really like Amy Poehler and I heard the first season was crap, but I'm glad I did. And just as I thought, Poehler is the worst part of the show. But, I count my lucky stars that Adam Scott is on this show :wub: I've loved him for awhile now so that was a nice surprise.

Yay....love Community and P&R. The latter has done a great job with fleshing out its supporting characters this year.

The Office/Parks and Rec/Community/30 Rock is by FAR the most hilarious 2 hours of comedy on the major networks.

I wonder how low they'll go next year on Thursdays... Especially without Carell...

I didn't like P&R at first, but now it is pretty good. It does help I actually work in Parks and Recreation myself.
