NBC cleans up network: ‘Revolution’ and ‘Community’ and more canceled

Update: "Crisis," "Believe," and "Growing Up Fisher," have been canceled.

Following the news of ABC network canceling various shows, on Friday, Spoiler TV announces the cancelation of two NBC programs. The two TV shows cut from NBC’s lineup are sci-fi drama “Revolution” and comedy “Community.” Not too many were surprised by the news, as both “Revolution” and “Community” have landed on the low ratings list for some time now.

“Community” is an American sitcom that premiered on September 2009. It starred Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, and Donald Glover. It centered on a group of students attending community college. While “Community” was a fan favorite when it first aired, audiences have lost interest over time. “Community” ran for five seasons.

“Revolution” is a post-apocalyptic drama that premiered on September 2012. It starred Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Giancarlo Esposito, and Zak Orth. The series took place 15 years after the start of a worldwide permanent electrical power blackout. I’m not sure why this series lasted as long as it did (almost two complete seasons), it didn’t receive the best welcome from the very beginning.

“Revolution” was picked up by NBC with 22 episodes, but reduced to 20 almost right away. The second season was given a new time slot, to help improve ratings. It looks like that wasn’t the case.

Since late on Thursday, ABC has been doing a massive clean-up to its network lineup. If you missed the news, “Trophy Wife,” “Mixology,” and “The Neighbors,” have been canceled. The news of these three canceled shows were followed by the cancelation announcement of “Suburgatory” and "Super Fun Night."

Fear not though, several shows were renewed. Some of these include “Modern Family,” “Agents of SHIELD,” “The Middle,” and “The Goldbergs.” Also, ABC picked up “Marvel’s Agent Carter.” It will be inspired by Marvel’s One-Shot “Agent Carter.” The show will follow Peggy Carter, as she deals with balancing administrative work while doing secret missions for Howard Stark.
