Oh, what’s that? You campaigned tirelessly alongside other fans to help convince NBC to give Community another chance? And now the critical darling is coming back, and despite some changes, you’re eagerly anticipating its return on October 19th? Well DENIED, internet loser! According to Entertainment Weekly, NBC has decided to postpone Community (and also Whitney, but … meh. It’s Whitney.) to focus on its new shows, and just like that, we’re back to the darkest timeline.
“Given the success we’ve had for the past four weeks – including winning the first week of the season in A18-49 — we’ve decided to continue to concentrate our promotional strength on our new NBC shows that are scheduled Monday through Wednesday and have therefore decided to hold Community and Whitney from their previously announced premieres of October 19th. Without having to launch these comedies on Friday at this time, we can keep our promotion focused on earlier in the week — plus we will have both comedies in our back pocket if we need to make any schedule changes on those nights. When we have a better idea of viewing patterns in the next few weeks, we will announce new season premieres of Whitney and Community.”
Ummmm, NBC? Your new shows involve Dane Cook, guys trying to raise kids, and monkey doctors. Seriously, it’s like there’s a real life Jack Donaghy in NBC who actually is trying to tank the show. Wait, then that means… LIZ LEMON IS REAL YOU GUYS! Everything you see on 30 Rock is real! YAY! (But no seriously, bring back Community. That show Animal Hospital blows.)
