The Office: Rashida Jones, John Krasinski

Justin Lubin/NBC

Rashida Jones' new comedy series The Rules for Starting Over  was picked up this morning by Fox, so chances are, The Office producers are hard at work in an editing bay right now splicing together a fitting finale to air tonight. (Remember, they shot four possible endings while they waited for Rashida's fate.)

In other Fox news, Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino's new series The Return of Jezebel James was picked up—albeit most likely for midseason. And 'Til Death is the only freshman series picked up for a second season, so here's hoping the new shows Fox unveiled this a.m. will do a little better this year. Those series include:

  • K-VilleA drama focusing on cops coping after Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.
  • New Amsterdam About a 700-year-old immortal man who solves crimes.
  • Canterbury's Law Julianna Margulies stars as a defense attorney.
  • Sarah Connor Chronicles The Terminator character is fighting villains from the future in present-day Los Angeles. (Maybe Jack Bauer can help?)
  • Back to You Patricia Heaton and Kelsey Grammer return to TV as anchors of a Pittsburgh TV news station. Lots of buzz surrounding this one, which will be paired with 'Til Death.
  • The Rules for Starting Over:  Rashida Jones and Craig Bierko star in this comedy from the Farrelly brothers, about divorced friends who get back into the dating market.
  • The Return of Jezebel James:  Lauren Ambrose and Parker Posey (am I the only one who loves this combination?) star in a drama about a woman who asks her sister to be a surrogate mother for her baby.
