‘Community’ Gets Shelved

In an inexplicable move by NBC, the network has decided to pull Community from its mid-season lineup. The show will be replaced by new episodes of 30 Rock. 30 Rock’s 9:30 slot will now be filled by Christina Applegate’s Up All Night.

The Hollywood Reporter says Community will return to NBC at a date to be determined. Others believe this is a clear sign the show will not be renewed next year.

Sources cite the low ratings for the decision. Which is confusing because Community is a great show. But it sort of makes sense because it seems like only old people apply for a Nielsen box. How else can you explain that Two and a Half Men and Big Bang Theory (coincidentally both created by Chuck Lorre) are still on? Those shows suck. I’ve seen funnier stuff on rotten.com.

Truly a disappointment to read this as I thought Community had great writing and a really funny cast.

Well, tv execs have no taste. They just base decisions on numbers.
