    All 4 shows will still be renewed, The Voice will prop up Go On and The New Normal for its last few eps in April, they will be used to rebuild the Thursday comedy block next season, blah blah blah.

    I don’t doubt Go On and The New Normal will probably get renewed, but don’t understand how they’re going to be used as building blocks in a revamped Thursday lineup. They both flopped without The Voice, so what happens if they go up against The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men?
