In a day otherwise devoid of TV news, it looks as if the major networks are seizing the opportunity to tinker with their lineups. Where earlier saw CBS grant full-season orders to 'The Crazy Ones,' 'Mom' and 'The Millers,' NBC has now officially canceled the stagnant 'Welcome to the Family' and 'Ironside' remake, setting 'Community' season 5 to premiere in early 2014 along with 'Chicago Fire' spinoff 'Chicago P.D.'
As we draw closer to Comic-Con 2013, NBC has become the latest network to unveil its full slate of TV panels for the international pop-culture event in San Diego. Among the known presences of 'Hannibal' and 'Revolution,' most exciting is the glorious return of 'Community,' led by its returning creator Dan Harmon!
After wrapping up one of its last major midseason holdings in the 'Hannibal' finale, NBC has officially jumped into fall 2013 territory to set their upcoming premiere schedule. Among the highlights, 'Parks and Recreation' will jump across the pond from D.C. to London for its hour-long sixth season opener, while Jonathan Rhys-Meyer's 'Dracula' will bow in October, understandably.
Yesterday NBC laid out its fall lineup for viewers, retooling its Thursday nights in particular to lead a new comedy block building up to Michael J. Fox's new show, the aptly named 'The Michael J. Fox Show.' Among the new offerings include the long-awaited Johnathan Rhys-Meyers' 'Dracula' and 'Office' vet James Spader's 'The Blacklist,' but how would you like to check out the trailers of NBC's newest series?

We'd be hard pressed to say who had the most brutal of cancellations and fruitful pickups between the five major networks this weekend, but few would offer that NBC had any undeserved ends. Even so, the peacock has become the first among the five to set its major schedule, moving 'Revolution' and 'Parenthood' to new nights, scheduling Jonathan Rhys-Meyers 'Dracula' for fall and moving 'Community' and more to midseason! Get the lowdown on NBC's new lineup inside!
'Community' fans remain on pins and needles for news of a pickup today, but it seems NBC has yet to finish issuing series orders to new comedies and dramas. The latest to join NBC's 2013-14 lineup are that of the 'Ironside' reboot, featuring 'The Event' star Blair Underwood in the titular role, along with 'Scrubs' creator Bill Lawrence's new comedy 'Undateable' and the expected 'Chicago Fire' spinoff. Read all about NBC's new lineup inside!
Earlier last year, we brought you the news that NBC had expressed interest in re-tooling '60s procedural 'Ironside' for a modern reboot, in the same way CBS successfully managed to revive 'Hawaii Five-0.' Now it seems production has begun moving forward. NBC has officially ordered a pilot episode of the remake, and reports suggest that 'The Event' star Blair Underwood may take the title chair. New details on the 'Ironside' reboot inside!
NBC may not have had much luck reviving 'The Munsters' into 'Mockingbird Lane' earlier this year, but if CBS can revive past shows like 'Hawaii Five-0' successfully, who's to stop NBC from trying again? The peacock has next gotten the ball rolling on rebooting '60s-era wheelchair-bound detective 'Ironside,' who was famously forced to find alternative methods of fighting crime after being left paralyzed from the waist down. Who might be ready to take the chair as the new 'Ironside?'
