No new Parks and Recreation until mid-season! Weak.

I'm interested in The Event. With 24 gone, I do have the spare tuner on the DVR for 9pm Mondays opposite RAW so I'll give it a shot.

Undercovers is JJ Abrams' new show so he'll have my attention.

Thursday night's move of 30 Rock to 8:30 will probably help it a lot in my eyes. I tended to watch the Thursday night block all in a row and I'm usually all laughed out by the time The Office ends. That doesn't bode well for Outsourced, whatever that is, but I guess since I'm already watching NBC, I'll see how it goes.

Still, man, we won't see our favorite town in Indiana until January. That blows.

"Outsourced" is about an American company that outsources their call center to India and then sends their manager to India to run those operations. The only name I recognize from the cast is Diedrich Bader, who was on "The Drew Carey Show" and also the next door neighbor in "Office Space". Show creator Robert Borden previously co-created "The George Lopez Show", "The Brian Benben Show", and was a writer for "The Drew Carey Show" as well as mostly recently a writer for "Late Night With David Letterman".

Looks like Adam Carolla strikes out again. "The Adam Carolla Show" was a pilot for NBC. Last year he had a pilot with CBS called "Ace In The Hole" that wasn't picked up either.

Way to reward P&R for having a strong sophomore outing by cutting off its third year at the knees. Then again, with Rob Lowe joining the cast, I wonder if this isn't some sort of budgetary move.

If any show could benefit from a half-season rest, its The Office, since everyone seems to feel its drifting toward mediocrity this season. But I can understand why NBC wouldn't do that.

My friends and I were speculating earlier that the P&R delay could have to do with Amy Poehler having her baby this summer. However, the cast is supposedly shooting the very beginning of Season 3 at the end of Season 2 to help bridge that gap anyway...

Let's hear it right from the source, Parks and Rec's showrunner himself:

@KenTrememdous Yes, it's true: #ParksandRec has been pushed to midseason next year. Hopefully back ASAP. Our S2 finale is Thursday - watch and enjoy!

@KenTremendous (Also, we've completed 3 eps for season 3 and will have 6 total before production hiatus; can't wait for everyone to see them.)

@KenTremendous To answer frequent Q: this is NOT because of Amy's pregnancy. She's working super hard (@ 7 months!) to make sure the show's ready for fall.

I'm about to pour myself a celebratory drink (yes, before sundown on a Sunday!) now that I've read that Community will definitely be back for another season. That was easily my favorite new show this season, and I heard it might not have been getting the ratings needed to stay on the air. Hooray for more Abed and SeƱor Chang!

Sing this special song. It's just for you.
CHUCK~! CHUCK~! Sorry, had to.

A lawyer show that isn't Tennant's gets picked up, boo. A David E. Kelley lawyer pilot that ISN'T the one Kristin Chenoweth starred in? Double boo.

EDIT~! Munn's sitcom pickup probably means a permanent gig for Underwood on AOTS or a promotion for Haislip (less likely since she's getting acting gigs in movies) or (in the alternate universe I rule) the return of Sarah Lane!

Also,

Dear Heroes,
Suck it.
Sincerely,
I can't believe I watched all of Season 3

Hopefully Masi Oka can get on a good show now.

More from NBC execs, focusing on Parks and Recreation's move, and Law & Order and Heroes' cancellations.

NBC should promote the hell out of Parks and Rec's season 2 DVDs and let the whole season run on nbc.com and Hulu to get maximum eyeballs on the show before its return.

It's based off the movie of the same name from 2006, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outsourced , which I hear is pretty good.

This just means that P&R won't premiere until January, not that their S3 will just be 13 episodes long, right?

Right.

Well, "somewhere around January, depending on when they need to fill a hole", but, yeah.

I'm intrigued that Paul Reiser has a new sitcom that's also on the midseason list. He's been gone for a while.

KenTremendous? As in one of the geniuses behind firejoemorgan.com? If I had known that, I would have been watching this show from the beginning. I see a date with Hulu in my near future.

"Mad About You" gets a bad rap because of how it ended (and also the reference made to it on Seinfeld).

Before the baby came along and ruined everything, it was a great show. My favorites are the Raul Julia episode (I don't remember if it was actually him or not) and the Laugh-In episode.

Edit: Yep, Mike Schur, writer for "The Office", Cousin Mose, creator of "Parks & Recreation", Ken Tremendous from firejoemorgan.com, and also Regis Philbin's son-in-law.

You mean John Astin, actually. He was played by the real John Astin, but it was never completely clear who he was on the show.

Not only did the baby change the show, but the addition of that horrible marriage counselor really messed things up for me. But the early years of the show were really, really good. My favorites include Paul getting invited to Yoko Ono's party and Jamie's Thanksgiving dinner.

So this just confirms that the original L&O is gone. That's too bad.

Of course, USA managed to save Criminal Intent. Any chance lightning might strike twice?

Wow, I'm not watching ANYTHING on NBC now. I'll give 'LOLA' a shot, but it doesn't sound promising.

USA or TNT should try picking up L&O. Anthony Anderson was growing on me as a 'good guy' for once.

Not sure I get all the "Mad About You" love. I watched that show for awhile, but it started grating on me way before any kid was born (because I'm pretty sure I stopped watching way before that happened). It got a lot of "Seinfeld" comparisons, which I suppose is understandable considering the similar styles and scenery, but I found it in no way anywhere near as funny of a show.

I can't believe this is actually happening. Right now I'd put it on my list as #3 most anticipated movie for 2012, which should tell you how strong 2012 will be. (the two I'm more excited for are The Hobbit and Les Miserables.
