NBC To Debut 3 New Shows In September, 8 For The Season

Crews joined NBC's entertainment chairman, Robert Greenblatt, in saying that the show made more sense on NBC's line-up.

In one interesting shift for a TV network, NBC will be rescuing "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", which was recently cancelled on Fox after five seasons.

Rather than throw out several new series in September to compete against each other for viewers, Fox and NBC have announced they are only premiering two and three new series, respectively, in the fall.

"If I knew Andy Samberg was gonna be cast in that show, we probably would never have sold it to Fox", Greenblatt said.

NBC's upfront event - when it will present its new shows to potential advertisers - will take place tomorrow morning at New York City's Radio City Music Hall.

Perhaps the biggest casualty to date: CBS axed "Kevin Can Wait". If he was, it might have been a different decision, Greenblatt said.

He's taken steps to rectify that and will start a winter edition of the summer hit "America's Got Talent", with judge Simon Cowell on board.


Nearly immediately after news broke of the cancellation, an outcry of anger over the cancellation and support of the show took the internet by storm. We love this show, those are great creators, it's a phenomenal cast. (As well as maybe gave some people flashbacks to Fox cancelling such gems as Firefly and Arrested Development.) Perhaps it even means the series will work to get the famous Star Wars actor on for a cameo or role next year? "I'm just a fan who deserves better".

Here lately, the Fox network has been booting many of its television shows, from The Exorcist to The Last Man on Earth.

The current season of the sitcom is scheduled to air its finale - the show's 112th episode - on May 20.

Walden said that after a five-season run by "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", the network didn't have the right place to put it.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine will air in the spring of 2019 as part of the mid-season replacements. "Ultimately we decided we just didn't have room for it and were trying we're really happy its found a new home".

On the call, TheWrap asked Greenblatt if he is looking at the upcoming 13-episode Season 6 as a proper sendoff, or if there are hopes the show goes on for many more years.

Next week, the broadcast networks deliver their "upfront" presentations in NY - an annual ritual in which they unveil their new fall schedules to advertisers.
