Over the weekend at the TCA's, lots of television news came spewing forth form the mouths of suits, and much of it was very good. Including:

  • Not that we really had that much doubt, but "Community" will in fact return this Spring to finish out its 12 episodes (many are even predicting that it will be renewed next season). It probably will not, however, return to its old time slot. (The AV Club)

  • The "Party Down" movie is real, and may just be spectacular. Megan Mullally reports that it is being written and that the entire cast, save for Jane Lynch (who she's unsure about) will return. It will pick up where season two left off. (THR)

  • Alec Baldwin's contract has been renewed for two additional seasons of "30 Rock," following this season, which also suggests that "30 Rock" will be around at least two more seasons. (THR)

  • There will not be a spin-off of "Glee." Unfortunately, though many of the show's major characters will graduate, Lea Michelle will return to the show in some capacity next year. Sorry, Courtney. (THR)

  • The fates of "House," "Terra Nova," and "Fringe" are unclear, though Fox entertainment chief Kevin Reilly wasn't exactly upbeat on any of the three, noting that all three are expensive and that the ratings of "Terra Nova" and "Fringe," at least, don't exactly justify the expense. I wouldn't hold my breath on "Fringe" or "Terra Nova," but I have a suspicion that "House" will still be on the schedule in 2017. (THR)
