It's nuts that Harmon created Community and was kicked out by Sony. I wonder if the beef with Chevy had anything to with it?

Kinda sad about Dan Harmon. It's not unexpected considering his "audacious personality", but the guy's a genius and I'm worried that a lot of Community's charm came from his brain. We'll see what happens soon enough, I guess.

At least the new showrunners for Community come from Happy Endings.

Here's my one line reactions to TV news this week:
Community back for 13 episodes - at least they're back.
Community moved to Fridays - NBC, I hate you.
Parks & Rec full season - score.
The Office full season - glad they're getting to return.
Dwight Spin-Off probably happening - ...
Whitney renewed for full season - WHAT IS WRONG WITH LIFE.

That Dwight spin off hurts my brain. I can't see that work on NBC when Community barely works.

It has to primarily be because he can be a prick. I mean, why else would Sony and/or NBC screw him like that? Community is his brainchild.

Moving to Fridays is a godsend for a show like Community.

I've considered that. There's a possibility it will fair well for a Friday show, therefore turning into one of those shows that stays on longer than anticipated.

But it's NBC. I don't trust them for a second.

Screw you, NBC. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't even let season 4 of Community make it to 13 episodes.

No one - usually sending a show to Friday is a way to kill it off. Bit in the DVR era, there's a chance shows can survive there in a sort of limbo.
