Prepare yourself for a roller coaster of emotion as we digest this ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ news

I’ve been warning y’all that Brooklyn Nine-Nine was in trouble, and now we know the threat was real.

Despite having its best season yet (in my opinion at least), the cop comedy was cancelled for a few reasons: the ratings weren’t great — in fact it tied with Last Man on Earth and The Mick, both of which were also cancelled, for Fox’s 13th most watched shows; it had passed the magic 100 episode mark, meaning it was syndicate-able and money could be made off of it without spending money on new episodes; it was produced by NBC Universal, not Fox; Fox recently picked up Thursday Night Football and they needed to make room on the schedule; and the fact that Disney recently bought Fox Studios means that Fox will be undergoing changes in the coming years, and they may have decided now was the time to start rethinking what kind of comedies they’ll be doing moving forward.

Still sucks, though. And you’re not the only one who thinks so.

Here’s a wonderful tribute to the show, explaining that the folks who didn’t give the show a chance because they thought it was a cliché, didn’t understand that the show was a subversion of all those tropes. And this twitter thread — just read this twitter thread.

However, the story may not be over for our Brooklyn squad — thanks in part to the outpouring of outrage over the cancelation, other outlets are looking at maybe picking up the series. Hulu is the obvious choice, Netflix is something of a long shot, and then there is also NBC — after all, the show is an NBCUniversal production. So stay tuned!

In some good news, Hiro Murai, the genius director behind most of the episodes of Atlanta and a little something called This is America, has signed a deal with FX to develop and produce projects for them. It’s been quite the week for this guy and Donald Glover (and Solo hasn’t even opened yet).

Here, Murai talks about last night’s finale of Atlanta (so don’t click if you haven’t watched — but do go watch it because Atlanta just closed out the best season of television this year) and This is America — which apparently was only filmed about two weeks ago while we were all flipping out about Beychella.

EUROVISION SONG CONTEST IS TOMORROW (see below) PREPARE YOURSELVES. And appreciate the fact that you can watch it; those assholes in China won’t get to after they censored a gay performance in the semifinals.

Young Sheldon dropped a bombshell last night.

Here’s how Benioff and Weiss sold HBO on dragons.

God dammit, the Tremors reboot that Syfy is not going forward with actually looks like a lot of fun. Why? WHY ARENT WE DOING THIS, SYFY?

J.J. Bittenbender is NOT HAPPY about Mulaney’s bit about him. And fun fact: he also inspired a character on Mr. Show with Bob and David.

David E. Kelley is threatening us with an Ally McBeal reboot. NO THANK YOU PLEASE.

Here is someone thinking waaaay to hard about SpongeBob and memes.

AT&T’s CEO thinks that making that deal with Michael Cohen was a “big mistake.” LOL, WHY?

Shut the fuck up, Tucker Carlson.

And now you know.

WATCH THIS

FRIDAY

The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle: Yes, Moose and Squirrel are back. Series premiere. Amazon

All Night: A teen comedy about some high school seniors on “grad night.” This looks like typical teen comedy material, but I can’t help but think about John Mulaney’s bit about how so many song lyrics are about how “tonight is the night” and “we only have tonight” and what 19-year-old garbage that is because I am an old woman. Hulu

  1. I, with everyone else, was sad about the nine-nine and I’m glad it got picked up. I am still bummed about The Mick though. I loved that stupid little show. Alex, Inc. too. Not to mention The Exorcist (even though there was no question it would get cancelled) So many good shows getting axed this season.
