Fox execs finally reveal why Brooklyn Nine-Nine was canceled

And NBC is holding the Fox comedy it saved, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", and several other shows for midseason.

We jumped on it really quickly and are thrilled to have it and think it fits into our brand of comedy in many ways better than it fit into Fox's brand of comedy.

Fox, which is carrying National Football League games on Thursday nights this fall, is saving the second season of Seth MacFarlane's "The Orville" and several other shows for midseason.

Dana Walden, chairman and CEO of Fox Television group, announced in a 2018 programming presentation for the press on Monday that the network doesn't regret their decision in giving "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" the axe. "I feel like we've had a really nice upswell culturally", said Andy Samberg, who plays detective Jake Peralta, in a recent interview before the cancelation was confirmed. Sorry, Lucifer fans (and I'm one too, so I'm not happy). We were trying to create a more cohesive program, and scheduling Brooklyn would prevent us from promoting something new.

One of the creators of the series "Brooklyn 9-9" Dan Gur has delighted all his followers on Twitter, saying that NBC will continue the filming of the popular sitcom about police officers.

NBC's pickup of Brooklyn Nine-Nine brings the number of Schur series on the network to three - he also has "The Good Place", which was renewed for a third season and the newly picked up comedy "Abby's".

Nearly immediately upon learning the news, Twitter exploded into fan fury, despite the fact the show has been pulling in an unimpressive 2.7-million viewers in its current fifth season.

There's no word yet on when Brooklyn Nine-Nine will officially debut on its new network.

I say we go kick some Nielsen ass. "Thanks in no small part to you, the best fans in the history of the world!"

NBC is once again on track to end the season as the No. 1 broadcaster in both total viewers and the key 18-49 demographic that to the Super Bowl and the Olympics. While the viewership of the show was high, the overall ratings likely weren't where Fox would have liked them to be. And the Tim Allen comedy is getting a second life on Fox after being canceled - a year ago - by ABC. It's a surreal experience because every show is like a human being - it has its own personality, and when it's canceled it's a death.
