We now know why NBC made a decision to save Brooklyn Nine-Nine

While the fan outcry was heartening, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said Sunday that because of business considerations, the pickup already was in the works.

Plus, don't forget that the writing was on the wall for a long time with Brooklyn Nine-Nine - there was talk that it might not last beyond its fifth series a full year ago - so NBC had plenty of time to see this coming and figure something out.

Greenblatt later went on to talk about the online campaigns to save the show, which he said were a very good thing. But Hulu and Netflix, later on, passed on the opportunity to bring back the comedy series for another season.

Perhaps the biggest casualty to date: CBS axed "Kevin Can Wait".

NBC was admittedly "treading water" in the winter between editions of "The Voice", during the last few years, Greenblatt said. The mystery/sci-fi-ish show focuses on a turbulent plane flight that ends safely - but the world has moved on, to five years in the future.

"New Amsterdam", on Tuesday, is a medical series based in New York's Bellevue Hospital.

BJP surges in Karnataka, Congress stunned

When news came out about the show's renewal fans were delighted, especially the main man, Andy Samberg, but it has led people to reflect on other sitcoms that have been renewed consistently.

One midseason alternative-reality series is "The Titan Games", pitting six contenders in battles of "mind, body and heart" - beyond sheer brute strength. We are so grateful for our fans. If Brooklyn Nine-Nine has a large streaming fanbase, that might have been reason enough to keep the show around for another set of episodes. "It's the fans! I could not be more grateful for the fans who wrote petitions and kept up the passion and incredible support for the show". The stars include David Alan Grier, Martin Mull and Vicki Lawrence.

Co-created by Dan Goor, Brooklyn Nine-Nine has picked up two Golden Globes (including Outstanding Comedy Series), won two Emmys (for Outstanding Stunt Coordination), and helped actor Andre Braugher, who portrays the tough but lovable Captain Raymond Holt, earn three Emmy nominations (for Outstanding Supporting Actor).

"We're really happy that it's found a new home", she said.

Next week, the broadcast networks deliver their "upfront" presentations in NY - an annual ritual in which they unveil their new fall schedules to advertisers.

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.
