NBC On Saving 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': 'We're Thrilled To Have It'

And NBC is holding the Fox comedy it saved, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", and several other shows for midseason. In the meantime, look for new episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine over at its new NBC home during the 2018-2019 TV season.

This current season - just days away from completion - has seen big numbers for NBC.

Meanwhile, Fox is now airing the fifth season of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" which still has two episodes left before it officially leaves the network.

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is produced by NBCUniversal's studio, Universal Television.

"It was based on a variety of factors".

However, he added, "We love when fans yell and scream on Twitter, but we hope that transfers and they watch the show". It's a phenomenal cast.


Meanwhile, NBC decided not to give the midseason drama "Rise" a second season, meaning next Tuesday's episode will end its run.

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine has given us fully human characters, beautiful, powerful, flawed, vulnerable, majestic", he tweeted.

This is the week that broadcasters traditionally announce their schedules for the coming season to advertisers in NY, and while they hope to draw attention - and advertising dollars - to their shiny new shows, for viewers whose shows won't be back, it can be a sad time.

We'll say: "Brooklyn" was canceled by Fox on Thursday. But Fox was aware others were interested in the show and is "happy" it found a home on NBC, she said. "We kind of assumed it would".

Tim Allen's "Last Man Standing", canceled previous year by ABC, is being resurrected by Fox next season because it's a "great comedy" and not as a conservative statement, Fox executives said Monday. We were trying to create a more cohesive program, and scheduling Brooklyn would prevent us from promoting something new.

The decision to bring back Last Man Standing was made easier by the success of ABC's Roseanne reboot, which some attribute in part to its star's support of President Trump. He said: "It's NINE o'clock and the NINE NINE is now on NBC".


"We're thrilled to have [Brooklyn Nine-Nine]", Greenblatt said.

"We didn't have the right opportunity". It will be worth watching to see if the reality singing competition, which is still a strong contender in the time slot, can be used to introduce the new series. Hulu also now has an SVOD deal with the show, so the two entities have a relationship of some nature already.

NBC will use "The Voice" on Monday night as a lead-in to "Manifest", a mystery thriller about a missing plane.

Tim Allen told Fox News he was "excited" to begin filming Season 3 of "Last Man Standing".

There's also the new multi-camera comedy "Abby's", which is described as the first sitcom to be show outdoors in front of a live audience.
