Here's some happy Friday news for fans of Mercy , Community and Parks & Recreation . NBC has picked up all 3 series for full seasons. From Zap2it: "None of the three shows has made a whole lot of noise in the ratings ( Mercy is the leader of the three, averaging 7.8 million viewers a week), but as NBC tries to climb out of its fourth-place hole, it's opting for a measure of stability in the second half of the season." We recently mentioned both Community and Parks in our Fall Things Reconsidered feature. While I noted that I don't feel like Community has lived up to its potential just yet, I'm happy that it's getting a full season to grow. And...as I mentioned...I think Parks has been much improved in its second season, so I'm thrilled that it will be sticking around. Which of these series are you most excited about their pickups?

Megan Mullally will guest star on Parks & Recreation , Rashida Jones tells TVGuide.com exclusively. The Will & Grace star will play the ex-wife of Amy Poehler's character's boss. "She's married to Nick Offerman, who plays Ron Swanson, but they play exes on the show," Jones said. Mullally is currently shooting her episode, which will air on Oct. 29. In last week's episode, Ron was incapacitated with a hernia. Could his ex-wife cause him similar pain? Mullally's recent broken wrist from a car accident hasn't slowed her down.
