Community and Parks and Recreation should get some extra episodes ordered later today. Both shows earned a 2.0/6 [rating in adults 18-49], which isn’t great– but it’s consistent. Patience has paid off before for NBC and comedies, and new chief Jeff Gaspin has said he doesn’t want to needlessly make changes to the Peacock schedule.
For season two, NBC initially ordered 13 episodes of Parks and Recreation. If the network were to extend Parks’ season, NBC would likely order nine additional episodes. In the entertainment industry, this is referred to as “ordering the back nine”.
