Instead, John will be under informal probation for three years and will have to pay a $390 fine for his misdemeanor DUI drug charge.
The 52-year-old is also reportedly required to attend 52 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings over the next year in addition to having two hours of drug and alcohol counseling.
Sounds pretty lucky to us, especially since it also doesn't seem likely that the actor will have to miss any work on FOX's Grandfathered.
He definitely has something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Listen up, y'all — this one's a doozy.
LAPD is investigating Sean Kingston's claim that he was kidnapped by a jeweler over a $225,000 watch.
According to TMZ, the singer made payments on the time piece — but only totaling in the amount of $185,000 because that's how much he thought it was worth.
We're pretty sure that's not how the world works, but we digress.
Anyway, after a series of arguments, the two agreed to exchange the $225k watch for another one actually worth $185k.
The Beautiful Girls singer met with the jeweler in the back of a car in a downtown El Lay parking lot at 1:50 a.m. (not sketchy at all) to make the trade. The 25-year-old musician says the jeweler then refused to hold up his end of the bargain after snatching the $225k watch from Sean.
Next, Sean says the business owner's posse locked him in the car, drove away, and tossed him from the vehicle in a secluded area.
If police corroborate Sean's story, it's considered kidnapping.
Oh shizzz?! Very inneresting.
This is quite the tale considering Sean was kidnapped by someone he owed thousands and thousands of dollars.

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is set to be released from prison next month on good behavior (three months early than her 15 month sentence!) and will put out her memoir about the whole experience in February.
Needless to say the 43-year-old is ready to get back to business!
In Turning the Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again, Miz Giudice takes an in-depth look at her upbringing, living the life of luxury on RHONJ, the her journey behind bars after being convicted of fraud with husband Joe Giudice.
In a first look at Tre's book — which will also include scans of her prison diary — obtained by People, the mom of four pens:
"People think they know everything about me … but they don't. Not even close. The world will see a new Teresa. A different Teresa. Well, actually, the Teresa I always was."
We can't wait!
We wonder if Joe will also write a novel while he serves his 41-month sentence starting in March??
What do U think of Teresa's decision to document her journey, Perezcious readers?? SOUND OFF in the comments!

Jared Fogle Officially Sentenced — Find Out How Much Time The Scandalized Spokesman Will Spend Behind Bars
On Thursday, Jared Fogle received his prison sentence after pleading guilty in an extremely disturbing child exploitation case.
In case you forgot, the weight loss activist rose to fame becoming a spokesman for Subway after shedding pounds thanks to the sandwich shop — but now has been charged with counts of child pornography and having sex with minors. Gross!
This ruling comes shortly after Russell Taylor, the director of the Jared Foundation, was arrested and the July raid on the Indiana resident's home. The corporation has since fired the father-of-two!
Back in August, the prosecution team worked out a plea deal with the scandalized celeb. However, after much back and forth between the defense and the prosecution, it's since been revealed that Jared will have to spend
