    Isn't that the third movement for "Harry's Law"? They are going to kill it.

    Grimm needs a better time slot (and some better supporting actors...) if they hope to bring up the show's ratings. Wednesday at 9 or 10 would be a better slot for this show.

    I wonder if the programmers look at the number of DVRs and think "it doesn't matter what time we move a show to because more and more people are using DVRs and time-shifting"?

    Hmm, I missed that when perusing.


    So, it's cancelled, I guess?

    Will NBC ever get back into the business of television?

    Did they kill off Prime Suspect after showing it millions of times in the last few weeks.?

    Chuck, Grimm, and Parenthood...

    TV Line posted that Community will be a half-season series, much like Cougar Town on ABC.

    I have just Grimm, Chuck and three comedies on Thursday night. Sad that this network no longer offers much that appeals to me. I grew up on NBC...

    According to The Hollywood Reporter regarding "Community":
    This is also confirmed in THR's Live Feed which also reports:
    I guess that means that nobody at NBC is making "final" decisions.

    Community, Chuck and Prime Suspect may be good shows, but they just aren't pulling in the ratings. Look at Chuck, NBC has given it repeated chances over 5 seasons and it can't even manage a 1.0 rating.

    NBC desperately needs a hit, and sticking with the same old formulas isn't going to get the job done. NBC needs an event like in 2004 when ABC launched both Lost and Desperate Housewives - shows that were high concept and looked fresh and new.

    We're really enjoying Prime Suspect so far. I hope it survives on cable. We like the cast additions to SVU as well.

    Otherwise we record SNL, Harry's, Grimm, Office, 30 Rock and Parks & Rec.

    My wife and I watch Parenthood and I watch Grimm. And that's the most shows we've watched on NBC in years.

    For Parenthood to wrap up its season by 2/28, it can have only two more weeks off (presumably 12/20 and 12/27, assuming only one episode per week, and a total of 22 episodes this season). That would mean the show would have had only three total weeks off since the season premiere on 9/13.

    Am really impressed with the acting, as well as the rapid character development of the entire ensemble, which makes them interesting, even if the plot devices are mediocre at best. (Even the perps are interesting!) Usually you don't see such character maturity until the second or third seasons. Oops! There -- I said it: "maturity." Doesn't go well on network television. :D
