NBC has announced that "Community" has been renewed for a third season. Also included to be returning are two other established NBC Thursday comedies, "The Office" and "Parks and Recreation". 30 Rock was previously given an early renewal late last year. No mention was given to the network's new sitcoms Outsourced and Perfect Couples, which does not bode well for either of their futures.
In the ratings this season, Community is averaging a 2.1 in adults 18-49 and 4.7 million viewers overall.
