NBC Officially renews 30 ROCK

Looks like it’s time to condense our ‘Save One Show’ poll (see sidebar). Via press release, NBC has just announced that it will renew its ratings starved critically acclaimed comedy 30 ROCK (returning to the network’s lineup on Thursday, April 5, with a special supersized episode at 8:40 p.m. – 9:20 p.m. ET) for the 2007-08 season.

“From the beginning, 30 ROCK has proven to be the kind of quality comedy that doesn’t come around very often, and we are very pleased to have this show back for a second season,” said NBC president Kevin Reilly. “We expect it to continue to build its increasingly loyal audience and become another of NBC’s classic comedy series.”

Now with 30 ROCK renewed, all that’s left for Kevin Reilly to do in order to secure his status as network television God is to give an early renewal to his other critical darling FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS. And while I’m wishing for things, how about bringing back STUDIO 60 ON THE SUNSET STRIP sometime this season.

Kevin you alone have the power to make a TV addict’s dream come true. Make it happen and we at theTVaddict.com will even promise to give RAINES another chance.

    I cannot believe 30 Rock got renewed. The show is absolutely hilarious but because of the ratings I was expecting the worst. So, YAY!

  • Josh

    Woooooo! One of the funniest shows on TV. 😀

  • Tim

    Hell yes! Definitely one of the best comedies on tv. Who woulda thought that after the terrible pilot episode?

    Also, this gives me hope for The Black Donnelly’s and Friday Night Lights. Keeping those fingers crossed.

    I heard yesterday that The Black Donnellys has been officially cancelled. Kinda glad i never started watching it.

  • Tim

    I don’t think it has been cancelled. Just pulled from the schedule. I heard they may not even keep it off the schedule, just possibly move it.

    According to http://www.thefutoncritic.com/home.aspx, it has been cancelled and NBC will stream the remaining episodes online.
