NBC has just released news that two shows will be pulled from the network’s lineup to be put into effect immediately. Welcome to the Family and Ironside are the two shows that — unfortunately for fans — have been selected.
On Thursdays, NBC will air two back-to-back episodes of Parks & Recreation in place of Welcome to the Family.
I can't believe NBC cancelled Welcome To The Family!!! It was really cute and funny!! I'll miss seeing Mike O'Malley on tv every week. 🙁

so many former west-wingers back on tv this season (although, one less now that Welcome to the Family has been cancelled) 🙁

The news is slightly better for fans of the police drama, Ironside, which stars Blair Underwood. It has been reported that one additional episode of Ironside will air on Wednesday, October 23rd. After the last episode, Ironside‘s 10 p.m. Wednesday night time slot will be replaced by Dateline.

The reason behind the untimely departure of both shows from the network’s lineup has not been disclosed at this time; however, this has not stopped fans from voicing their disappointment at having these shows cancelled.[Image Via Wikimedia Commons]
