Well, no major surprise here either. Just hours after NBC picked up a number of series and officially discarded both '1600 Penn' and 'Whitney,' the peacock has added to the cancellations 'Up All Night' and 'Guys With Kids.' 'Up All Night' especially had been through a heap of trouble with showrunner changes, revamps and Christina Applegate's departure, but will that be all of NBC's major shakeups today?
Guys with Kids
While a number of NBC viewers still find themselves inside the darkest timeline, a world where NBC pushes 'Community' back to February, and slots 'Whitney's second season in with the network's increasingly three-camera lineup, it seems 'Guys With Kids' isn't going anywhere quite yet. The peacock has officially ordered additional episodes of the Jimmy Fallon-produced series, though not quite for a full-season pickup. So, how many more episodes will we see, and why isn't 'Whitney' going to be of any help?
Still streets behind, folks. While our hopes for 'Community' were lightly raised, and quickly dashed at the cancellation of NBC's Justin Kirk comedy 'Animal Practice,' more news has come out that leaves the fate of 'Community' season 4 ever more uncertain. Where 'Whitney' will take the Wednesday slot vacated by 'Animal Practice,' the Jimmy Fallon-produced three-camera 'Guys With Kids' isn't going anywhere just yet. NBC has put in an additional order for the series, but for how much?
It happens just about every season where actors cast in pilots have to bow out even when picked up to series, already having commitment to another program. Sara Rue held an active part in NBC's new Jimmy Fallon-produced pilot 'Guys with Kids,' which the networked picked up to series, though her commitment to ABC's fellow pilot 'Malibu Country' prevents her from doing both. What Adult Swim star will be brought in to replace her?
Sheesh, don't they want to keep a little money to keep the dishes functioning? Maybe chin-rests for Leno's off-hours? A billboard or two for 'Community?' NBC won't officially unveil their fall lineup until this coming Monday May 17, but have continued adding to the list of shows granted an early pickup. So what's the latest, and whose humor can we expect?
