The peacock network has made a surprising early pickup and has renewed Parks and Recreation for a third season.
The Office and 30 Rock are all but guaranteed to be renewed but there’s no word on how the Parks order will affect Community’s chances for survival. The Chevy Chase freshman sitcom typically performs better than Parks so it would seem that it’s also a lock for renewal.
However, the network has eight comedy pilots in development and would likely want to keep a Thursday night timeslot open to try one or two. The network may be waiting to look at the new pilots until making a decision about Community.
Alison Brie is one of television’s most versatile actresses, staring on both NBC’s Community and AMC’s Mad Men. She’s also super attractive and Complex Magazine seems to have taken note of that fact. The magazine recently sat down with Brie for their upcoming issue. To preview this, the magazine posted a short video of the shoot.
Zap2It has an article about Community star Yvette Nicole Brown. Here is the highlight:
A solid role on a sitcom gives an actor recognition and a steady paycheck as NBC’s “Community,” airing Thursdays, has done for Yvette Nicole Brown, who plays Shirley. But it took a supporting role on a kids cable station comedy to give her celeb status.
It was her stint as Helen, the loud theater manager on Nickelodeon’s “Drake & Josh,” that made Brown a star among kids.
“The greatest gift I got from ‘Drake & Josh’ is I am ridiculously famous with children,” Brown, 38, says. “If you are going to be famous, that’s the segment to be famous with. I cannot walk down the street without a face peeking out from behind a tree. It’s a ball of joy that greets me everywhere in the world. It was my first bit of steady employment.”
“Shirley is becoming me at a rate I am really afraid of,” Brown says. “I love people and am such a cheerleader.”
At 8 p.m. Fox was first with a season-high 3.5 for the surging “Bones,” followed by CBS with a 2.3 for back-to-back repeats of “The Big Bang Theory.” NBC was third with a 2.0 for “Community” (2.1) and “Parks and Recreation” (2.0), ABC fourth with a 1.8 for “End,” CW fifth with a 1.6 for “Diaries” and Univision fifth with a 1.3 for “Hasta que el Dinero Nos Separe.”
Zap2It has an interview with Danny Pudi. Here is the highlight:
A Chicago native, Pudi can also sing in Polish, as he demonstrates while shooting promos on set at Paramount Studios in Hollywood.
“I sang a lot as a little kid,” says Pudi, the son of an Indian father and a Polish mother. “My mom would be very happy.”
“It’s a really funny way,” Pudi says, “to do something quick and fun that is not necessarily tied to the show but takes you into the world of Greendale and these characters, Abed and Troy, and allows us to play off each other. We’ve been shooting those on the fly. There’s not a lot of prep time.”
