NBC Renews Parks and Recreation, Up All Night, Whitney

by at . Comments

Breaking news, Parks and Recreation fans: we'll get to see what Leslie Knope will be like in office.

NBC just announced a 22-episode fifth season renewal for what many consider to be the funniest show on television. It joins fellow Thursday comedies 30 Rock and Community in receiving a pick-up, while the same news is all but guaranteed for The Office, considering recent new deals signed by Ed Helms, John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer.

NBC will present its official, full 2012-2013 schedule to press members and advertisers on Monday. It's already placed orders for a number of new programs, however, and you can get your first look at them in our new show gallery.

UPDATE: Add Up All Night and Whitney (no, really, Whitney) to the list of renewals. Each is expected to air 13 episodes.

CBS Unveils Fall Premiere Date Calender

CBS has come out with its fall premiere schedule. When does your favorite series return?


Thanks for the feedback Ron. It takes a few secndos for the video to load. Hopefully that will clear up your problem of not seeing the episode. It pulls the video content from HULU and that it why it takes a few secndos to load the video. You can also try going directly to .


If Whitney can go another 13 episodes, why couldn't Heroes have had a few more episodes, or at least a 2 - hour TV movie to wrap things up? I guess Whitney probably has a low production cost, but you get what you pay for.


Is a billionaire paying to keep Whitney on the air???


Glad parks got the full 22 but community should have as well instead of just 13, heres hoping for an extension and I will miss awake that was such a good show but people are too busy watching crap like taahm to appreciate the good shows.


Seriously Whitney, how in god's name did that happen?? Really?? That show sucks, wow!
