I'm honestly still reeling from everything that's happened, to be honest. It has been quite a rollarcoaster of emotions during the last 48 hours, from the announcement of FOX cancelling B99 to hearing about all the fan campaigning and overwhelming response about the news, to the possibility of other networks wanting to renew it only to find out that they all passed on the opportunity, therefore our hopes being dashed, and then, lo and behold, NBC being our savior and reviving the B99 for another season. It makes sense, though, considering that all of Mike Schur's other shows are on NBC (Parks and Recreation and The Good Place), so it's the perfect fit tbh. It'll be getting a 13-episode order, and no matter whether it'll be considered the last season or not, I'm just thankful that it got picked up.
Granted, there's been a lot of emotions lately as the announcements of which shows are renewed and which are cancelled, because it is that time of year again and it's never a fun time, and unfortunately Friday was a bloodbath of shows being cancelled left and right.
All of this has brought up the never-ending rants/discussions/debates once again about how antiquated the Nielsen rating system is and how television needs to change the way it perceives the viewership of their audience, especially in terms of adapting to how technology has changed and needing to take into account viewership in other countries (including making streaming easily accessible and available for them that isn't just US-based, which is a huge part of the problem). It's a broken outdated system that traditional media needs to get rid of and find a better, more efficient way of calculating the numbers and views for shows from all platforms worldwide.
