NBC On Saving 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': 'We're Thrilled To Have It'

"I've always considered it home". Until... NBC swept in an made the save.

"We jumped on it really quickly and are thrilled to have it and think it fits into our brand of comedy in many ways better than it fit into Fox's brand of comedy". "I'm SO not ready to say #ByeBye99".

Speaking of Fox, the network revealed its Fall 2018-2019 schedule on Monday. It's one of the great shows of the past 30 years.

Much of NBC's portion was anchored once again by "Late Night" host Seth Meyers. He suggested those in the room spare a thought for "the shows that weren't renewed, the pilots that weren't picked up, and the shows from the '90s that weren't revived".

Action star Dwayne Johnson is producing and appearing in NBC's midseason competition show The Titan Games, which will feature mental and physical challenges.

Mostly, though, the network highlighted its hits. Fans will be able to watch the sixth season on the streaming service next fall, assuming that's when the new season premieres.

NBC changed its mind after hearing the outcry of fans who were disappointed by the cancellation of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine".

The hours of heartfelt pleas and tweets to save the show worked.

Fox canceled "The Exorcist", "Lucifer", "Last Man on Earth" and "The Mick".

Fox and other broadcast networks are presenting their new schedules to advertisers in NY this week. If the deal goes through, the Fox network will be more dependent on sports, news and live-event programming. Fox declined to continue the series for a sixth season, yanking the show from our TV screens (but not our hearts).

The TV show has been celebrated for its inclusivity and representation.

Tim Allen's "Last Man Standing", canceled a year ago by ABC, is being resurrected by Fox next season because it's a "great comedy" and not as a conservative statement, Fox executives said Monday.

Fox also explained why it saved "Last Man Standing." When Fox said that it would not be renewing the series for season 6, fans emerged on social media to launch a protest campaign. The format will be a championship tournament of past favorite performers and winners from worldwide editions of the show.
