NBC has ordered full seasons of rookie series Community (cool!) and Mercy (meh), as well as second-year comedy Parks and Recreation (woo-hoo!).

The back-nine pickups come despite middling ratings for all three show, although Mercy has perked up somewhat in recent weeks.  As Peacock president Angela Bromstad points out, “[Mercy] has found a dedicated audience and continues to build in the ratings. We’ve seen future episodes and we’re confident Mercy can be a strong player for us.”
