Brooklyn Nine-Nine is picked up by NBC, and fans rejoice

If you'd like to remember some other shows Fox should probably be embarrassed about cancelling, we have you covered.

"When we got canceled, it was the shock of a lifetime", Crews told Variety on the red carpet.

Mostly, though, the network highlighted its hits.

And with the season finale of Timeless on tap for Sunday night - and ending on a massive cliffhanger - Greenblatt remained mum on the show's future at NBC.

There hasn't been any word on the specifics, such as how much did NBC have to pay FOX to get the show.

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is produced by NBCUniversal's studio, Universal Television. Premiere of the 1st season took place in autumn 2013.

During Fox's upfront press call on Monday, execs were also asked about canceling "Lucifer". We were trying to create a more cohesive program, and scheduling Brooklyn would prevent us from promoting something new.

Speaking of Fox, the network revealed its Fall 2018-2019 schedule on Monday.

That should give those five new entertainment series on the two networks more time to be promoted and a better chance to succeed in a climate that is increasingly hard for more shows to catch on.

Series co-creator Dan Goor spoke with Vulture about the show's rapid fire jump from Fox to NBC, and when asked whether or not he'd be willing to have diehard fan and recent Oscar victor del Toro direct an episode, Goor did not hesitate to answer in the affirmative. Since Fox is no longer, or soon won't be, the owner of the show.

Alas, Fox pulled an un-cool, cool, cool move and dropped the series. "Thanks in no small part to you, the best fans in the history of the world".

The networks are saving most of their news shows for midseason, along with some returning series. "We were emboldened by the response we saw on 'Roseanne.' We saw it as an opportunity to pair those two shows together on Friday night".

Unfortunately, the prospects of "The Last Man on Earth" getting saved by a heroic streaming service or other network are highly unlikely, making the cancellation feel all the more devastating.

"Usually January and February are periods for us where we do some treading water while "The Voice" is off between fall and spring and this year I am really thrilled about what we put together driven by unscripted shows", Greenblatt said.
