      • Original post said “one hours” and I glanced quickly

  • Really exciting that the season finale of Revolution is going to air on Memorial Day. Can’t wait on how Season One is going to an end and if NBC is going to renew the show for a second season. :-)

    • airing a season finale on a holiday is dumb!

      • Lowest rating by far for the series. It’s no Hatfield and McCoys

  • Will miss Parks and Rec. Good Riddance to the atrocity that is 1600 Penn. I had such high expectations and all for naught. Glad Revolution will finish later. Hope Hannibal works out and we can get a nice, long showing going into the middle of summer.

  • Why is Parks concluding at 9:30? They still have six episodes to air and no word yet when the next new one will be. Does that mean we get a week with more than one? Are they changing its time slot?

    And worst of all…is this an indication that bad news is on the horizon?

    • It’s their highest-rated comedy not called The Office (which is wrapping anyway). Parks and Rec will be renewed, no doubt about it. The show returns April 4, with six new episodes. I’m assuming they’ll air two episodes on May 2 – one at 8:30, one at 9:30, since there are six episodes left but only five weeks.

    • Parks & Rec is NBC’s highest rated comedy’s that can still be renewed, no way will it be canceled

      • With the Office and 30 Rock ending, P&R is the crown jewel of NBC comedies and if it isn’t renewed, they have to at least have a Ron Swanson spin-off. I hope Community and Go On get renewed although I doubt NBC have much love for Community.

  • I beg of NBC to let SVU be the series finale. Bury that mess.

  • I really don’t understand why people hated 1600 Penn do much. Maybe they didn’t get Josh Gad’s sense of humor. All I know is that I’ve laughed in every episode, and Bill Pullman fighting Bruce Campbell has been one of my favorite moments of the season.

    • Some people need a bit more. You prolly laugh at Two Broke Girls.

      • Good analogy! I also wanted to like 2BG. And last season I watched it for a while, but like 1600 Penn, I just couldn’t do it anymore. It wasn’t as funny or witty as it was intended to be. I actually found some of the humor to be crass, when the intent was to be provocative, IMO.

      • 2 Broke Girls Humor Flow Chart:

        Girl 1 (usually the blonde): say or do something ridiculous
        Girl 2 (usually the brunette): state the obvious that previous statement or action was ridiculous

        Comedy Gold!

    • “Maybe they didn’t get Josh Gad’s sense of humor.” That is exactly it… It’s just not for everyone. I find his over-the-top juvenile antics to be ridiculous. He’s talented and has a certain charm that it’s fitted more for teenage movies, IMO. I just don’t find him endearing in this type of setting. But it’s not just him, the overall tone of the show is completely over the top which is great for a specific demographic but doesn’t really have broad appeal, as the ratings reflect. But again, this is just an opinion…

      Comment by Ana – March 19, 2013 01:34 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I agree. Teenage movies or CBS. And putting it on the same night Parks and Rec and The Office really highlighted just how (for lack of a better word) unsophisticated 1600 Penn is.

    • Josh Gad is the only good part. The rest is bleeeh

  • Are they trying out Go On for next season’s Thursday night block?

    Comment by Josh – March 19, 2013 01:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yes. For 2 episodes.

  • Don’t know why NBC left out on when the season finale of Saturday Night Live is set to air.

    Comment by Nicholas Brody 2.0 – March 19, 2013 01:36 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I wish NBC at least renews Deception and bring it back as a summer show, they left us with a cliff hanger and a way the show can keep going, plus season 2 will be about trying to prove who vivian murder is. But I know it wont be back with its ratings but i wish at least it could for summer 2014

  • SVU is getting 2 ours why??????? Gtfo. Something else is more worthy of extra time for a finale.

    Comment by Becca – March 19, 2013 02:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • 2 hours of SVU! Love it!
    It will be even more awesomelicious once they announce another season though ;)

  • Keeping Penn, Normal and Go On out of sweeps is very telling. Go on could make it. I think Community is going to get renewed.

    Comment by Alyssa – March 19, 2013 03:29 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Can they please cancel SVU after this finale? What a waste of space. If NBC decides to keep it can they move it to 1 in the afternoon after Days of Our Lives where it belongs.

    Comment by Angie – March 19, 2013 05:02 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • all i care about is Revolution and Community and I hope they both return even though Community’s heart has been removed this season

  • Why on earth is this godforsaken network airing finales for The Voice and Hannibal well into June? Do they want Hannibal to fail?

    Comment by Dr. Opossum – March 19, 2013 06:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • its because they want to remain last in place. i will not watch Hannibal because if they were serious about it they wouldnt be airing it this late. smells to me like they are just intending on burning them off. NBC stop being the joke you are. It isnt funny anymore and move from reality a little.

    Comment by dude – March 19, 2013 06:34 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • So basically NBC premiered Smash too early and the Voice too late killing one and squashing ad revenue for the other. Is there some sort of idiot certification you have to get before you can run a network?

    Comment by AAA – March 19, 2013 07:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • NBC should really just cancel SVU after this two hour season (hopefully series) finale, if show runner/executive producer Warren Leight isn’t going anywhere. If Leight leaves at the end of the season, renew SVU. I was so hoping Chicago Fire would have had the two-hour finale instead — Dick Wolf needs to bring that same ‘fire’/fresh writing to the Law & Order franchise (like Chicago Fire has), or what’s left of the L&O brand, that’s partially why LOLA and LOCI were canceled in 2011. I feel like someone is going to leave the SVU cast though anyway.

  • Is Chicago Fire Coming Back?

    Comment by Frank G – March 19, 2013 08:36 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yes, most likely. An official announcement hasn’t been made yet, but it’s got good ratings and this site lists its renewal chances as ”a sure thing”, so I guess it’s just a matter of time.

    • i like chicago fire

  • NBC is danger of getting beat by the CW on certain nights. That’s very telling. I wish they’d treat New Normal better. I feel like it should be on ABC after Modern Family though.

  • Two hours of SVU?! Oooh, I smell a big return!

    Comment by Zoe – March 22, 2013 11:47 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I hope that NBC will bring Deception back for the summer. I can’t get enough of the show. Deception along with Smash make my week!!

    Comment by Kat – March 22, 2013 09:19 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I really hope Chicago Fire comes back, love that show! Two hours for SVU?? Love the show but I’m hesitant about a two hour finale

  • Spotted out wearing an all in one, it didn’t require much for followers to want to imitate the style, and soon everybody was
    sporting them. Most times people want things of convenience,
    which is why the flower, card, and candy gift is so popular.
    Parents can order bodysuits, onesies, sleep n playsets, pants,
    frocks , t t shirts and tops, caps, bibs, socks and shoes, baby
    crib bedding and a myriad of baby clothes the child
    will require.
