The Fox castoff made its NBC debut on Thursday, Jan. 10 with 3.56 million total viewers and a 1.2 rating, improving on time slot predecessor Will & Grace‘s fall average by 50 percent while hitting a two-year demo high. Versus its previous season opener, B99 was up 82 and 71 percent. The Brooklyn Nine-Nine pick-up follows previous renewals for The Good Place (Season 4) and Will & Grace (Season 11).

Headline ripping Law & Order: SVU is now tearing apart the record books. NBC has renewed the venerable Dick Wolf procedural for Season 21, a move that will make it the longest-running primetime live-action series in television history. Mariska Hargitay & Co. will breeze past current title holders OG Law & Order and Gunsmoke, which ran for 20 seasons apiece.

“I’m deeply proud to be a part of this groundbreaking show, and humbled to make television history today,” Hargitay said in a statement. “The longevity and continued success of SVU is a testament not only to the show’s powerful storytelling and ability to connect with viewers, but to its necessity. We have told important stories for 20 years, and we will continue to tell them.”

'Law & Order: SVU': Philip Winchester Exiting After Season 20

'Law & Order: SVU': Philip Winchester Exiting After Season 20 The actor has been part of the NBC drama for the past two seasons after first playing his character on 'Chicago Justice.'

SVU is currently averaging 4.3 million total viewers and a 0.9 demo rating as NBC’s Thursday night closer, down sharply from its 19th season (which aired on Wednesdays, not leading out of sitcoms) but off just two tenths from what time slot predecessor Chicago Fire did last season. Among NBC’s 11 current dramas, it ranks No. 8 in both measures.

“As SVU moves into its third decade, Mariska has become an iconic figure as a star, advocate and crusader for women,” enthused Wolf. “She is an enduring champion of the movement to end sexual violence, and dozens of episodes have dealt with the very same issues that have shifted into the spotlight in this country in the past two years. Mariska is a delight as No. 1 on the call sheet and, to me, a true friend.”

CW Renews 'All American,' 'In the Dark' and 'Roswell' for Next Season.
The CW has renewed the last three of its freshman series for next season: "All American," "Roswell, New Mexico" and "In the Dark." The network also said Wednesday that "The 100" will come back for a seventh season. The additional pickups mean that all five new series — "Charmed" and "Legacies" were renewed back in January — will come back for next season. The additional pickups give The CW 14 returning series for next season. When The CW renewed ten series in January, "All American" was not among them, which raised questions about the show's future.
