NBC Cancels Half of Its Comedies

After announcing today that they've picked up three new comedies for the fall and renewed Parks and Recreation for a sixth season, NBC officially canceled four of its current sitcoms: freshman series Guys with Kids and 1600 Penn and sophomores Up All Night and Whitney. Up All Night was as good as canceled anyway after Christina Applegate quit and Will Arnett began taking other work following the abandoned retooling of the series, but NBC only officially confirmed the cancellation today. The network has yet to announce a decision on the fate of Community, Go On, and The New Normal, but ratings have been low for all three series and the network is set to unveil its new fall schedule on Sunday, which will be full of tons of new shows by the looks of things.

    They never even give these shows a chance any more… the comedy is not dumb/bland enough for mainstream viewers. Except for Whitney.
