NBC predicts 'Parks and Recreation' renewal (but these other shows are in trouble)
A seventh season of Parks and Recreation? It’s almost certainly gonna happen: NBC’s entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt was grilled on renewal odds for several prime-time shows on Sunday at the TCA press tour. Here’s what he said about each:
— Parks and Recreation: “I’m going out on a limb: Parks and Recreation is going to have a 7th season.”
— Parenthood: “It’s a great show and doing well creatively,” the executive is “hopeful” the drama can get to another season.
— Community: “A strong possibility.”
— Dracula: Greenblatt wishes its ratings were better, sounds like no verdict yet but it doesn’t look great.
— Grimm: Chances of another season are “not grim” executives joked.
— Sean Saves the World and The Michael J. Fox Show: Both were notably absent from the network’s prime-time lineup hype reel — not a good sign. Greenblatt also said he’s not happy with the recent 0.6 adult demo rating for MJFS and noted the show faces an “uphill battle.”
— Celebrity Apprentice: It’s still casting. That’s been going on for months now and normally the reality series is on the network’s schedule at this point.
— Law & Order: SVU: No word yet, but NBC is going to crossover its new drama Chicago P.D. with SVU after the Olympics, and Chicago Fire and P.D. will also crossover more.
