Continuing its struggle to obtain viewership, NBC has ordered a host of new sitcoms.

Matthew Perry will return to the network yet again with Go On, a sitcom about a sportscaster who struggles with grief. Meanwhile, Anne Heche will portray a woman in a marriage falling apart who escapes into a different identity and simultaneously creates miracles.

1600 Penn is a show about a family living in the White House; and Animal Practice is about a veterinarian.

Meanwhile, according to, four shows- Greg Daniels’ Friday Night Dinner, Sarah Silverman, Hilary Winston, and Roseanne’s Downwardly Mobile, were not picked up.

Sitcom fans have been breathlessly been awaiting news about their favorite shows: 30 Rock will  be renewed for what is likely to be its last season with only 13 or 14 episodes. The outlooks for Community and Parks & Recreation are similarly optimistic, though their renewals will likely be for shorter seasons as well.  However, sitcoms Whitney and Up All Night appear unlikely to survive.
