This just in: NBC picks up 'Community,' 'Parks and Recreation,' and 'Mercy' for full seasons

Posted on

NBC has ordered full seasons of rookie series Community (cool!) and Mercy (meh), as well as second-year comedy Parks and Recreation (woo-hoo!).

The back-nine pickups come despite middling ratings for all three show, although Mercy has perked up somewhat in recent weeks.  As Peacock president Angela Bromstad points out, “[Mercy] has found a dedicated audience and continues to build in the ratings. We’ve seen future episodes and we’re confident Mercy can be a strong player for us.”
