Kevin Smith, a late night host? AMC has asked the Clerks director to film a pilot of his Hollywood Babble-On podcast with Ralph Garman to potentially become a weekly late night talk show program. The company has also renewed Smith’s Comic Book Men for a fourth season and is developing a new show around one of that show’s frequent guests, collector Robert Bruce.

TV Bits: ‘Community,’ ‘30 Rock’ and ‘Parenthood’ Renewed, Plus: ‘Fringe’, ‘True Blood’, ‘Comic Book Men’, ‘Talking Dead’, and More

The good news for a lot of comedy fans today is that NBC renewed Community for a fourth season. There’s a catch, however. That season is a truncated 13-episode order at this point. And while EW reports the renewal, the site says that the returns of series creator Dan Harmon and actor Chevy Chase are still to be confirmed. Presumably there would be no show without Harmon, but given recent statements by Chevy Chase, perhaps there is still reason to be concerned about his return.
Still no word on Parks & Recreation, though that could arrive later this evening. But we do have promo pics from NBC’s new shows, renewal announcements for 30 Rock and Parenthood, and word on returning stars for The Office. Also after the jump:
- Fox unveils a trailer for Fringe‘s fourth season finale

The initial news that Kevin Smith would be producing a reality show set in his New Jersey comic book shop almost seemed like a joke. Would people really be interested in the inner workings of a comic book shop? The channel behind Mad Men, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead thinks so. AMC picked up the show, they’ve given it a new title, and plan on premiering it February 12 after The Walking Dead. It’s now officially called Comic Book Men, which gives a hint as to the grown-up-nerd slant the show will likely take. Check out two promos after the jump.
