Brooklyn Nine-Nine saved from cancellation

Acknowledging the big role fans' social media campaign played in the show's resurrection, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine"'s creators and stars announced the NBC pickup directly to them on Twitter. Thankfully for Nine-Nine devotees, NBC soon stepped in and saved that show-though neither Last Man on Earth nor The Mick, which Fox also canceled, have had such luck.

Now, NBC has gone on record to explain why they are giving the show 13 more episodes, with its entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt telling Entertainment Weekly: "Brooklyn is a show our company produces for Fox, so it's a show that's very close to us".

Brooklyn Nine Nine, Greenblatt said, fits into NBC's brand of comedy, in many ways better than it ever fit on Fox, adding that, had he known Saturday Night Live alum Andy Samberg would be cast in the series, he would not have let it be sold to Fox in the first place, calling it a "missed opportunity" for NBC. "A lot of people went to bat for us like Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Hamill, Sean Astin".

Fans - some of whom are famous celebrities themselves - also celebrated the revival, as the internet went up in flames a few days ago when Fox announced the cancelation.

But there are so many other shows we'll be saying goodbye to this season-and one of those airs tonight and will have a major cliffhanger at the end.

Creator Michael Schur also has close ties to NBC, having acted and served as Executive Producer on the network's U.S. version of The Office and creator of The Good Place. "Ultimately, we felt like we didn't have the exact right place to schedule it this year to perform best in our Sunday night lineup".

One of the main competitors Fox - NBC has chose to pick up "abandoned" sitcom, what did not fail to report to Twitter.

"The Cool Kids", 8:30 p.m. Friday: In this decidedly un-Fox-like sounding show, TV veterans David Alan Grier, Martin Mull, Leslie Jordan and Vicki Lawrence star as "friends living in a retirement community who are willing to break every rule in order to have fun - because, at their age, what do they really have to lose". TV Line reports that Brooklyn Nine-Nine is being held until midseason, meaning it'll hit USA screens early next year.

"It was great to know the fans were outraged, but we were too".

"Sterling was on, he was so good", the actor gushed, joking, "I'm going to say something controversial, I think Sterling is good at acting". The cast and crew believe that their efforts helped the show stay afloat for at least one more season.

"Last Man Standing" was actually dropped by ABC because the network was losing money on the show.

"Usually January and February are periods for us where we do some treading water while "The Voice" is off between fall and spring and this year I am really thrilled about what we put together driven by unscripted shows", Greenblatt said.
