It's time to join the revolution because it's here to stay.

And the first network to get the fall renewals started is NBC, folks!

The network officially ordered full-season orders of three of its freshman offerings: Revolution, Go On and The New Normal.

"We're impressed with the imagination and creative direction of the entire team on Revolution, not to mention the immediately strong response we got from the audience," Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. "Ordering the full season of this show is a pleasure. Thanks to J.J. Abrams, Eric Kripke, Jon Favreau, and everyone at Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television for their dedication to making a truly unique series. And I personally love to escape into a world where there is no power, the phone doesn't ring, and the pace of life slows down—if only for one hour a week!"

As for the renewed comedies, Salke said,  "We're also very proud of our new comedy block of Go On and The New Normal. In partnering with Matthew Perry for Go On, creator Scott Silveri has created a comedy with a highly original voice that deftly combines humor and emotion. And Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler have created a truly unique family in The New Normal that is reflective of the changing dynamics of the world we live in. These shows are both welcome additions to our new lineup!"

Revolution has been a strong performer for the peacock network, totally capitalizing on its generous lead-in from The Voice," averaging  a 3.6 rating and 9.8 million viewers in "live plus same day" results through its first three telecasts.

 Matthew Perry's comedy Go On isn't in need of any group therapy: The show is averaging a 3.2 rating and 8.6 million viewers overall in "live plus same-day" averages for its first three regular-slot telecasts, making it the fall's No. 2 new comedy behind ABC's The Neighbors. The New Normal is also performing well for the network, bringing in a 2.2 rating and 6.0 million viewers overall through its first three regular-slot episodes.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
