"Obviously I think everyone took a good hard look at the performance of Roseanne".
In a disappointing (but not altogether unexpected) move this week, Fox announced that it wouldn't pick up Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a sixth season.
Nearly immediately after news broke of the cancellation, an outcry of anger over the cancellation and support of the show took the internet by storm. One day after Fox cancelled the sitcom, it was snapped up by NBC.
Meanwhile, Fox is now airing the fifth season of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" which still has two episodes left before it officially leaves the network.
He quipped, "I mean, if you had a show in the '90s and your phone didn't ring this week, you must've been heartbroken", he said, later joking that NBC would soon be reviving "ALF", except that this time around the furry star is "a climate change denier". Amy Poehler is one of the behind-the-scenes figures on the Thursday night show. Hulu also now has an SVOD deal with the show, so the two entities have a relationship of some nature already.
Fox execs finally answered this on Monday during the announcement of their new fall schedule, saying that there just was not room for the show in their lineup.
Jonathon Dornbush is IGN's News Editor who has been watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine and is very happy he'll get to do so for at least one more.

"We love it even more when they watch the show". "ABC didn't really prioritize Last Man Standing", and it still drew more than eight million viewers a week, Fox Television Group cochairman Dana Walden told reporters Monday morning.
"It was great to know the fans were outraged, but we were too".
NBC, whose sister studio Universal TV produces the Andy Samberg-starring series, was one of the potential suitors for the comedy after its cancellation.
But why did Fox cancel the series in the first place? We wanted to give Bob's Burgers an opportunity to have a plum time period and really grow. Deadline reports that it saw a bump in delayed viewing over the following week, though, and tended to top other Fox comedies.
The decision to bring back Last Man Standing was made easier by the success of ABC's Roseanne reboot, which some attribute in part to its star's support of President Trump.
