For all the heads and attention NBC managed to garner this year with buzzy programming like 'The Sound of Music' live and upcoming 'Rosemary's Baby' remake, it's no secret that its Thursday comedy lineup has tanked to the point that 'Community' and 'Parks and Recreation' are considered the prize-winners. To that end, the Peacock has officially pulled production on Sean Hayes sitcom 'Sean Saves the World,' despite additional episodes ordered.

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.
As controversial as NBC's 'Smash' may have been, many were sad to see the series close out its two year run in recent weeks, even as ousted creator Theresa Beck continued to blast the series. Thankfully, all is not lost as breakout star Megan Hilty will be right back on NBC this fall joining 'Smash' guest star Sean Hayes in new sitcom 'Sean Saves the World.'
