NBC cancels rookie shows and puts ‘Parks and Recreation’ on hiatus
After a mere three weeks, two new NBC fall shows, “Ironside” and “Welcome to the Family,” are now canceled. Just like that. Three weeks. Buh-bye. Even worse, NBC announced they are shutting down one of television’s true quality comedic gems, “Parks and Recreation,” for the time being. The recent behavior of television execs has pushed me over the edge.
