LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- With "The Jay Leno Show" set to be jettisoned from primetime next month, NBC has extended five of its scripted series.

"Trauma," "Law & Order," "Parks & Recreation," "Community" and "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" have each been asked for two to four additional episodes.

Said pickups bring their season totals to 20 for "Trauma" (four added); 23 for "Law & Order" (three added); 24 for "Parks & Recreation" (two added); 25 for "Community" (three added); and 24 for "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (two added).

As for the Peacock's other scripted entries, "Mercy" and "Chuck" will film 22 and 19 installments, respectively, as previously announced.

Due later this year are multi-camera comedy "100 Questions" (six episodes); dramas "Parenthood" and "Persons Unknown" (13 episodes each); and the two-hour pilot to "Day One."

And finally, network sources have also confirmed "The Office" has been asked for 25 episodes while "30 Rock," due to its late start, is sticking with a standard 22-episode fourth season.
