The Peacock waited until the Friday night before the long Christmas weekend to make its (apparently) final two cancelations of 2018. Midnight, Texas, based on Charlaine Harris' trilogy, was renewed to air during the season after a successful run in summer 2017. Ratings, however, fell steeply in Season 2 and Universal Television plans to shop the series around. Marlon was also canceled after a second season ratings drop.

“Brooklyn is a show our company produces for Fox, so it’s a show that’s very close to us,” NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said of rescuing Brooklyn Nine-Nine during a conference call this morning, according to EW. “I’ve been saying to certain people in the press that if we knew Andy Samberg was going to be cast in that show, we never would have sold it to Fox. We’ve been watching it closely ever since. … We jumped on it really quickly and are thrilled to have it and think it fits into our brand of comedy in many ways better than it fit into Fox’s brand of comedy. It feels like it goes along shows like A.P. Bio, Will & Grace, Superstore, and The Good Place. … It’s also one of the few comedies in recent years that does a robust international number, and it has a syndication upside, which a lot of shows don’t have anymore.” Greenblatt added that he loved that the fans were so vocal. "We were right there with them," he said. "We love when fans yell and scream on Twitter, but we hope that transfers and they watch the show.”
