Yesterday NBC went on a spending spree to pick up no less than five new original series, both comedic and dramatic, in addition to their already picked up order of Matthew Perry's new single-camera comedy 'Go On.' Yet with all these new pickups, fans still wait patiently for news of its current crop of comedy, namely '30 Rock, 'Community' and 'Parks and Recreation.'
