Good News, Bad News: Special NBC UpFront Edition [Updated]

Good News: Your very own TV Addict will not be forced to “Occupy NBC” thanks to today’s announcement that both PARENTHOOD and 30 ROCK will be back for fourth and seventh season respectively. Bad News: Both renewals come with strings attached in that PARENTHOOD’s order is for a mere 15 episodes (down from this season’s already shortened order of 18) while 30 ROCK’s seventh season will officially be its last.

Good News: Joining Dick Wolf’s CHICAGO FIRE and J.J. Abrams/Eric Kripke’s REVOLUTION on NBC’s schedule next fall will be David Schulner’s Jekyll & Hyde-esque medical drama DO NO HARM and Liz Helden’s REVENGE-esque sudser INFAMOUS. Bad News: Unless your a PARKS AND RECREATION and COMMUNITY fan (Gulp!), NBC’s flurry of activity this week has taken virtually all of the suspense and excitement out of next Monday’s UpFront announcement in New York City.
