Looks like Greendale is taking an extended winter break.

NBC revealed its midseason lineup yesterday with some notable changes. Gone from the roster was Community and Prime Suspect, while Whitney was moved to Wednesdays along with Rock Center with Brian Williams. Up All Night was moved to Thursdays, and 30 Rock replaced Community and The Firm was placed at 10 PM. Community hasn't been officially axed yet, though -- it's just been benched for the time being. Thanks for giving us another reason to hate Whitney, NBC.

CBS's midseason schedule changes aren't quite as messy as NBC's. Rob Schneider's family comedy ¡Rob! will take the time slot following Big Bang Theory, replacing Rules of Engagement. Rules will return in the spring following ¡Rob!'s eight-week run with 13 episodes, rather than 18. You win some, you lose some when you take How to be a Gentleman's time slot, apparently.

Chatswin is the new Jersey Shore? The Situation will guest star on an upcoming episode of Suburgatory as himself, deejaying a Chatswin High mixer. Let's be real here -- what school administrator would let him through the front doors, and why would they pick Sitch over DJ Pauly D.?!

Megan Mullally will guest star on Up All Night as Ava's protégé-turned-rival talk show host. I can't wait for the inevitable brawl to follow.

Doctors and ghosts are apparently doing well together: A Gifted Man was just given an extra three-episode order.

NBC ordered a pilot for Beautiful People, a series about humans co-existing with mechanical androids that are identical to us but treated as second-class citizens. Sounds like a future we probably don't want to live in, because that's definitely not going to end well.

TLC ordered Irish Dancing Tweens, a series that will follow several Irish dance schools. Can they do a crossover with Toddlers and Tiaras, ASAP?

Dr. Who fans, start preparing: The iconic series is coming to the big screen, with Harry Potter director David Yates teaming with BBC to create a film franchise. Guy's gotta do something now that HP is done.
