(Newser) – NBC today made official what everyone expected: The network renewed 30 Rock and The Office for the 2009-10 TV season. The Biggest Loser also got picked up for another run, though the fates of fan favorites such as Heroes, Chuck, Lipstick Jungle, Friday Night Lights, and Life are on shakier ground. A network exec says Heroes is "very secure," provided it thins out its story lines and gets back to the original spirit.
