NBC boss on Brooklyn Nine-Nine: "It was great to know the fans were outraged, but we were too"
“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.”

The Blacklist's Megan Boone vows that her FBI character will "never carry an assault rifle again"
The NBC star's tweet this morning drew mixed responses, with some saying she should separate real-life from her fictional FBI character. Boone, who grew up in Florida, tweeted: "Liz Keen will never carry an assault rifle again and I am deeply sorry for participating in glorifying them in the past. Yours, girl from Florida." As TV Line's Andy Swift notes, Boone's character usually uses a handgun, though she has "on occasion" used more firepower, including an AK-47.
