Naturally, one of the day's biggest stories was Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which will air its sixth season on NBC after Fox gave the sitcom the ax-while Last Man Standing prepares to make its home on Fox after last year's cancellation at ABC. Andy Samberg, meanwhile, celebrated the news on stage at NBC's morning presentation at Radio City Music Hall.
Rather than throw out several new series in September to compete against each other for viewers, Fox and NBC have announced they are only premiering two and three new series, respectively, in the fall.
We jumped on it really quickly and are thrilled to have it and think it fits into our brand of comedy in many ways better than it fit into Fox's brand of comedy. Not only does NBC parent Comcast own "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", he said, but it has robust global numbers and syndication potential.
While we wait to see what life at NBC holds for the "Nine-Nine" crew, you can sit back and rewatch all the antics from the precinct over the last five years, streaming now on Hulu.
Fans - some of whom are famous celebrities themselves - also celebrated the revival, as the internet went up in flames a few days ago when Fox announced the cancelation.
Fox decided last week to pull the plug on the cop comedy after five seasons. We were right there with them.
"It just felt like a piece of the puzzle that- you know when you finish a jigsaw puzzle and one piece is missing, and you go what happened to that piece?"
I say we go kick some Nielsen ass. Fans were quick to raise up a storm when the news broke out, and collectively it was known that many, many people weren't happy.
Fox chairman Gary Newman said that was "a ratings-based decision; we had very a successful late year with all four new dramas renewed".
"Last Man Standing" was actually dropped by ABC because the network was losing money on the show.
"It was great to know the fans were outraged, but we were too". Fans who were once crying out on social media for someone - anyone - to save Brooklyn Nine-Nine suddenly rejoiced, knowing that Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero), Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz), Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti), and the whole gang would return for more shenanigans soon.
