We're not sure what it was about today that had the major networks promoting and canceling series left and right, but following CBS' full season orders, NBC's cancellation and 'Community' spree, FOX has given a full-season order to the Andy Samberg-starring cop comedy 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine,' as well as the coveted Super Bowl slot.
Fall TV 2013 has largely gotten into full swing on the broadcast end, and where FOX's 'Sleepy Hollow' became the first out of the gate to earn a surprise renewal, it seems ABC's 'Lucky 7' has the distinct honor of becoming fall 2013's first network cancellation. Meanwhile, FOX's Andy Samberg-centered 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' may end up the second series up for renewal, so how's the race going?
Among the many new pilots to debut this fall, 'SNL' vet Andy Samberg's 'Parks and Recreation'-style cop comedy 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' has attracted the most comedy heat by far. The new single camera series from 'Parks' producers Michael Schur and Dan Goor has just added another famous po-po to its ranks, tasking '30 Rock,' 'Law & Order: SVU' and 'Rescue Me' vet Dean Winters to its ranks, but will he still he the good guy?
Earlier tonight we heard that FOX had picked up four major new dramas to series, though the network's announcements are far from over.

Two of our favorite things on the internet are the Zach Galifianakis 'Between Two Ferns' and The Lonely Island web shorts. They are equal parts hilarious. But what if we told you that 'Between Two Ferns' and The Lonely Island teamed up for one massive video about music, spring break and gay marriage starring James Franco and Ed Norton? It's hard to describe but you're just going to have to watch for yourself because it's hilarious.
The first 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2' trailer has finally hit after the release of a snapshot or two, and a nail-biting countdown on Facebook. So what happened to the 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs' gang after Flint Lockwood's invention completely smothered his home island in giant-sized food? Where did they go? What happened with all that food? These questions will finally be answered with 'Cloudy 2,' dubbed 'Revenge of the Leftovers.'
It's been a tough going for Andre Braugher on TV, what with ABC both literally and figuratively sinking the high-profile drama 'Last Resort,' and even TNT pulling the plug on 'Men of a Certain Age' after only two seasons, but might the star's newest project prove unsinkable? Sources say that Andre Braugher has joined 'SNL' vet Andy Samberg's upcoming FOX cop comedy from 'Parks and Recreation' producers Dan Goor and Michael Schur. Find out who the former submarine captain will play inside!
When Andy Samberg left SNL, we thought we'd never see another Lonely Island music video on the show again. This is a situation where we're ecstatic to have been wrong! Samberg and his crew (including a few cameos that you're bound to recognize) are back with a new song and new video and it's one of their best.
For as much as we miss Andy Samberg's presence on 'SNL,' and hope 'Parks and Recreation' producers Mike Schur and Dan Goor's new FOX comedy won't mean the end of Pawnee, we're doubly excited to see what becomes of the groups new single-camera detective comedy. FOX has officially picked up the script to pilot, and we've now learned 'The Newsroom' and 'Expendables' star Terry Crews has been tapped to flex his comedy muscles for the series. Get the latest on the project inside!
Never fear, Andy Samberg fans. The timing of the unfortunate 'That's My Boy' with Andy Samberg's 'SNL' exit does not mean that the "D*ck in a Box" funnyman has abandoned TV for movies. In fact, we've just learned that Samberg has signed onto an untitled FOX comedy from the creators of 'Parks and Recreation,' but who will the new sitcom see Samberg playing? And what does it mean for the fate of 'Parks and Recreation?'
