CHICAGONBC gave us the news we’d all been hoping for since one of the best comedies on television was unceremoniously pulled from the air — “Community” will return to Thursday nights on March 15th, 2012. Of course, with good news comes bad news as “Parks and Recreation” goes on hiatus until April 19th. At that point “Up All Night” will have ended its 24-episode run and “Parks” can return. Confusing enough for you?

Let’s recap before moving on to some other NBC announcements. On March 15th, “30 Rock” moves back half an hour to make room for “Community.” “The Office” and “Up All Night” remain untouched. On April 19th, “Parks and Recreation” slides into that post-“Office” slot and we’re almost back to where we began.

In other news, “Bent” with Amanda Peet debuts on March 21st, 2012 and “Best Friends Forever” and “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers” start on April 4th, 2012. In news that might make some wonder if they’re not burning off episodes, “Bent” will air back-to-back on March 21st, 28th, and April 4th at 8pm CST. “Whitney” and “Are You There, Chelsea” will end on April 4th and be replaced by “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers” and “Best Friends Forever” with Jessica St. Clair. content director Brian Tallerico
