NBC is picking up full seasons of "The Event", "Law & Order: Los Angeles", and "Outsourced". This will hopefully let the producers of "The Event" even out some rough spots in the plot and bring it to its full potential. Obviously "LOLA" was going to get picked up as the network is so beholden to Dick Wolf regardless of how meh its portrayal of LA is. The anomaly here is "Outsourced" - do any of you think this show has the legs? It's been somewhat pleasing that not every joke is about how Indians pronounce English, more like only 2/3s of the jokes. Thankfully NBC has also chosen to pick up "Chuck", one of the less-pedestrian shows out there on the big networks.
