Since the major networks have inexplicably chosen to interrupt our Thursday night (also known as the week’s busiest night of television) with a flurry of renewals, pick-ups and cancelations, we thought we’d take a moment during a commercial break to catch you up on what you may have missed while watching the epic awesomeness that was tonight’s COMMUNITY, PARKS & RECREATION, VAMPIRE DIARIES and FRINGE!

    thanks for the amazing news

  • Hil

    Better Off Ted, you will be missed. 🙁

    V? Seriously? Maybe in season two the The Fifth Column might actually do something. Because so far its been a yawn.

  • Dave

    Sad for Better off Ted. No idea what Romantically Challenged is… LOL so oh well for that. Sucks that FlashForward ended up being a huge let down, it started off good.

  • joshemerson

    Why did you mention 13 episodes for Chuck but not V? Both were renewed for 13 with the option of a back 9.

    Anyway of course I'm freaking ecstatic about Chuck coming back. I've been enjoying V too. Kind of disappointing about Scrubs and FlashForward. I was beginning to like the new Scrubs cast with Drew and Denise, and I think FF got better after the hiatus.

  • Abby

    Excited about Chuck and V. I knew Better off Ted wasn't coming back but still a disappointment.

  • Ace

    So happy that Chuck is coming back! So sad that Better Off Ted is gone, but can't say I didn't see that one coming. Can they make a spinoff with just Phil and Lem??
