NBC has voted to “go on” with three of its new fall shows.
NBC made its first full orders of the new season, as it renewed Monday drama “Revolution” and comedies “Go On” and “New Normal,” which air on Tuesdays.
They are three of the earliest shows of Fall 2012 to get the “back nine” episode pickup. “The Voice” and “Revolution” has been a strong Monday night lineup for NBC, which has struggled a little in recent years against CBS, ABC and Fox.
“We’re impressed with the imagination and creative direction of the entire team on Revolution, not to mention the immediately strong response we got from the audience,” Jennifer Salke, NBC Entertainment president, said in a press release. “Ordering the full season of this show is a pleasure. Thanks to J.J. Abrams, Erik Kripke, Jon Favreau, and everyone at Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television for their dedication to making a truly unique series. And I personally love to escape into a world where there is no power, the phone doesn’t ring, and the pace of life slows down- if only for one hour a week.”
"We’re also very proud of our new comedy block of Go On and The New Normal," added Salke. "In partnering with Matthew Perry for Go On, creator Scott Silveri has created a comedy with a highly original voice that deftly combines humor and emotion. And Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler have created a truly unique family in The New Normal that is reflective of the changing dynamics of the world we live in. These shows are both welcome additions to our new lineup!”
