Yes, Virginia there is a Santa Claus — "Community" and "Parks and Recreation" got renewed for their third and fourth seasons, respectively. NBC made the announcement today with NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt saying in a press release, “Along with 30 Rock, they represent the best of what the NBC comedy brand stands for in terms of originality, wit, and sophistication ... "Parks And Recreation" has come into its own this season as the rightful companion to "The Office," and "Community" is one of the freshest comedies on any network and a solid foundation for Thursday night.” So, as much as NBC looked like buffoons for screwing up that whole Conan thing, they've made the right move here. Jay Leno still sucks, though.
