    You need reading/writing comprehension.

    Killing them off would be cancelling/not renewing them THIS season.

    I don't give a crap about the others, but I am crushed over Parks and Rec.

    And now you even qualify it with "if the reports are true".

    There were lots of ways to create this thread, but your way was wrong. It's not that I need to get over it, it's not that big a deal. It's just my feeble attempt at hoping people will strive to create better titles, when they see the effects of a poorly created one.

    In other news, someone was wrong on the Internet today, so I'm off to correct them.:D

    If true, I'm ok with it I guess. I don't watch P&R, but I do watch the other two. 30 Rock, to me is out of ideas, so a graceful exit is good. Despite all the knocking I do on Community I will really miss that, and also glad that it will get a nice sendoff. On the other hand, I have to question their choices for new sitcoms. Anne Heche? Matthew Perry? Bill Pulliman? What have they done on TV that has been the least bit successful recently? So rather than find some fresh new talent, they are recycling has beens and never was. I thought Whitney was a good idea because they brought in someone who was fresh and different. But I guess that's kind of normal for the way TV is, the networks are more likely to take a risk on shows with a big "name".

    I am so confused. Like others, I will wait for the upfronts next week. I never got past the pilot on 30 Rock. I did not get past the pilot on Parks and Rec. Community is past its freshness date. (Weirdly, an episode has been nominated for the Hugo Awards, an annual big SF award.)

    You mean, after next season, right? (If the OP's rumors are to be believed)

    This just in - NBC is going to cancel every show currently on its network!!

    Well, not right now, but eventually.

    Yeah, the wording of the thread title seems to suggest an immediate action, as opposed to a future action.

    You should give P&R another try. Start with season 2 and watch a few episodes. It was a thousand times better than season 1. I also gave up after the pilot, but tried a few episodes in season 2 and now I think it's the best comedy on TV bar none.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. The OP feels that the title is justified because they are killing them off, just not right now, and we don't know when because there is just speculation...

    This just in: "We are all dying!" some day. :rolleyes:

    It feels like P&R is coming to a natural ending anyway -- Lesile wins the election, Ann gets back together with Chris.

    I am glad they are giving them all a chance to wrap things up. 30 Rock isn't what it once was but I still enjoy it and I will hang in there until the bitter end.

    Community and Parks and Rec are still fantastic shows. Maybe Netflix will be interested? They seem to be trying hard to transition something from network TV to their service. I think either show would fit in nicely.

    I love all three of these shows. Gonna miss them when they are gone.
    But at least they know they are leaving, and hopefully will write some great final episodes.

    That is how I read it and it made me sad. When I realized the truth it made me happy. For NBC to try and get into the mix with the other nets they have to end this large block of niche shows. I love them all so this is good. The creative teams beyond all three shows are so good that they will have 13 amazing episodes. When parks and rec did 13 episodes last year starting in spring it was one of the best sitcom seasons in the history of tv
