This article, which is dated Tuesday, is poorly sourced - which is to say, "not at all." I think we can hold out for a better one.

I could be erroneous, but I thought only 30 Rock was deliberately wrapping up and the rumored short orders for Community and P&R didn't come with a built-in expiration date. I guess we'll know by Monday.

You'd think a network as drenched in failure as NBC would have room in its schedule for 9 measly more hours for two shows that generate some prestige and positive attention for them. At the same time, maybe "smaller orders for beloved low-rated programming" will become a new, better compromise in how networks handle those kind of shows in the new TV landscape. They get to continue making the show, but there's less pressure on and angst around them without as large a schedule and financial commitment. I certainly would've taken that deal with many of our long lost friends.

People have been posting this all over my Facebook today. I had never even heard of this website until today, so it could be wrong. But, I figure it might be best to get us nerds up in arms earlier rather than later.

Call me when someone other than Bob's Super-Cena Wrestling Board has it. They got 30 Rock right...but everyone basically knew that a week ago.

I think it all stems from the 30 Rock report. People played telephone with "30 Rock to wrap up with shortened order, C&P&R may also have shortened orders" to "everyone will wrap up with shortened orders."

Here's the TV by the Numbers link. It's 13 episodes and done for 30 Rock. Somebody must be doing a movie or something, because 30 Rock deserves a lot better than to go out on a mere 13 episodes.

It's finances. I haven't seen figures, but it's accepted that 30 Rock costs a decent penny more than Community and P&R to produce. Being in New York probably doesn't help. I'd rather have 22, too, but I see where they're coming from.

Yes, but people actually watch 30 Rock unlike Community and Parks and Rec. Even though it costs more, wouldn't it bring in more overall?

That used to be the case, but this season both Community and Parks have had slightly better ratings than 30 Rock (Surprised me as well). Happy to have all 3 back, and hopefully Community and Parks can get a back 9 order too.

UPDATE to the EW link below:

Parks and Rec renewed for 22 EPISODES!

And Whitney renewed!

Parks and Rec and The Office officially renewed (insidetv.ew.com)

No mention of episode count but there's not been any indication The Office would have its episodes reduced to 13 like Community and 30 Rock.

Also, Up All Night renewed (tvline.com)

Likely also for 22 episodes.

Parks and Rec got renewed for a full 22 according to their Facebook page.

I'd like to formally apologize to everyone for starting this thread. Feel free to berate me and downvote me into oblivion.

And ABC is bringing back Happy Endings for 22. No man left behind, not this year. H.E. is the true spiritual fourth member of the NBC quadrant. You should get on board.

30 Rock has never, ever gotten good ratings. They're the original "low-rated critical darling" of the NBC Thursday lineup, long before Community or P&R saw the light of day. The difference, however, is that 30 Rock has never seriously teetered on the edge of cancelation since it was a) winning so many Emmys, giving NBC a prestige show b) had the Lorne Michaels pedigree behind it, plus the big names of Fey and Baldwin and c) it was legitimately a great show in its first three seasons (and again this year), so I'd like to think that counted for something.

Do we know if 30 Rock's shorter season was a network thing or a creative decision from Fey and company? Like, everyone's schedule is busy, or simply they wanted to go out big and make 13 all-killer-no-filler episodes?

Community's still on board for 13, but Parks & Rec is now reported to have a full 22 episode order.

I actually like less new episodes a year. 13, BBC style, means the average quality will likely be much higher.

How does USA do their shows? It feels like they do 6 per season. I'm okay with 13 a season granted we get like a "summer and winter or spring and fall" season because shows like Community must be seen more than 13 times in 12 month period.
