Good News, Bad News: Special NBC Pick-Up Edition!

Good News: After weeks of anticipation, NBC has officially given CHUCK a full-season pick up, bringing the little-series-that-could’s fourth season order to a whopping 24 episodes! Bad News: For a certain website which has made a name for themselves touting CHUCK’s renewal prospects on a weekly basis!

Good News: For fans of the freshman NBC series CHASE, which despite consistently lagging behind timeslot competitors HAWAII FIVE-0 and CASTLE, also saw their series awarded with a full-season pickup. Bad News: For J.J. Abrams’ UNDERCOVERS, whose lacklustre performance on Wednesday only warranted an additional order of four scripts. Ouch.

Good News: On Friday August 6, Amy Poehler and Will Arnett welcomed their second child into the world, Abel James Arnett, weighing in at 7lbs., 13oz.. Bad News: Noticeably absent amidst NBC’s recent flurry of announcements throughout the past 24 hours is a season premiere date for PARKS AND RECREATION. Seriously NBC, what is up with that?!

    Yeah, I’m definitely curious what NBC’s going to do regarding Parenthood. I thought for sure it was a safe bet but now I’m confused. I mean who would have thought Chase would get a full season?!

  • I was actually just corrected by a friendly neighborhood reader (@rac2873 on twitter) who pointed out that PARENTHOOD was picked up for a 22 episode second season in May.

  • WooHoo!!
