Good news came in threes at NBC.
The network announced renewals of the heart of its Thursday night comedy lineup, “30 Rock,” “The Office,” and the freshman series “Community” (8-8:30 p.m. ET). All will be back for the 2010-11 season.
Smart move – but a no-brainer. These shows, along with ‘Parks & Recreation,” have been getting better, funnier, and more sophisticated each season. They give the network, which has struggled the past few seasons, quality to build on in the future.
The announcement was made by a very pleased Angela Bromstad, President, Primetime Entertainment, NBC and Universal Media Studios.
“We are happy to give these early pickups to these critically acclaimed, incredibly funny comedies,” said Bromstad. “As a result, we look forward to continuing our rewarding partnership with the respective creative teams and talented show-runners for ’30 Rock,’ ‘The Office’ and ‘Community’ as they all consistently deliver quality shows.”
“Drizzle drizzle! NBC picked us up for Season 2 of Greendale shennanigans,” tweeted ‘Community”‘s Danny Pudi. “Thank YOU for watching and Thank YOU cast/crew for the best job!”
