This just in: NBC has picked up Community, The Office and Parks & Recreation for the 2011-12 season; they’ll join the already-renewed 30 Rock. Outsourced and Perfect Couples, however, are probably dead. Sorry about that … Perfect Couples. ---

What’s new tonight:
Perfect Couples (NBC) It’s likely canceled, but that’s no reason to give up on Perfect Couples just yet. Sure, Fox’s Traffic Light has essentially blown it out of the relationship-comedy water, but there’s still some funny shit going on here: Tonight, control-freak Leigh (Olivia Munn) makes a career plan for Amy (Mary Elizabeth Ellis) and essentially becomes “Amy’s wife,” which I’m really, really liking the sound of.

Parks & Recreation (NBC) Harvest Festival is finally here! But Leslie (Amy Pohler) runs afoul of a local Indian tribe leader, who puts a “curse” on the event. Even worse, April (Aubrey Plaza) is pissed off at Andy (Chris Pratt) again, which may or may not affect the chances of MouseRat rockin’ the H-Fest. Don’t know if they were even slated to play, but they sure as hell should be.

30 Rock (NBC) Tracy’s (Tracy Morgan) wife Angie (Sherrie Shepard) is back with her NBC/Universal/Kabletown reality show Queen of Jordan, which causes headaches for Jack (Alec Baldwin), as well as those of us who think Sherrie Shepard is a complete moron who happens knock the occasional comedy role out of the park. Damn …

Also new tonight:
Community, Outsourced
(NBC); NCAA Shit I Don't Care About (CBS); American Idol, Bones (Fox); Jersey Shore (MTV); Eagleheart (Adult Swim); TNA Wrestling (Spike); Destination Truth (Syfy); Fairly Legal (USA); Archer (FX)

Preview: The Harvest Festival hits a slight racial-insensitivity snag on Parks & Recreation:
