    What Ereth said. :(

    At least "About a Boy" got renewed. It's like watching my childhood on TV.

    I like it too! :( I always liked Jenna, but I mostly tuned in for JK Simmons. What a drag. I would have kept on watching.

    Sorry to be a dick, but I'm glad to see Community go. If only they would also get rid of Parks and Rec then maybe some of their "I'm better than you because I like 'smart' comedies" fanboys will be quieted. Case in point...

    People have different tastes in humor. I still can't understand why fans of NBC comedies have such a holier than thou attitude.

    Bummer.

    I do like About a Boy, but finally gave up on Hannibal a week or so ago. Just got too weird for me.

    I had a feeling....

    I've been checking everyday for the last week for this news. There were some sites that had it leaning towards being renewed but I just had this feeling it was done for.

    I'll miss you Community, you were my favorite comedy on TV and the only show I watched live.

    I liked her on Dharma & Greg, DIDN'T like her on whatever show she was on a couple years ago about getting pregnant, and she was decent on this show.

    Each season has had it's great episodes, but overall, Community has been going down hill starting with season 2 with only a slight upturn this past season. but I'll miss it.

    I'm streets ahead as a Community fan but even I was disappointed with most of the episodes this season. It was time for it to go.

    Allison Brie and Danny Pudi should be big star household names IMO.

    Agreed. It was one of my absolute favorites back in the day, but I'm now three episodes behind this season. That never used to happen, and it's a clear indicator that the show isn't nearly as compelling as it once was.

    Never liked her. At best, can only tolerate her. She was actually lower key here and was just part of the background.

    Isn't this like the 3rd time it's been canceled?

    I think smart comedies thrive to make people who don't get the jokes look stupid....and I really LIKED Community...when I got the jokes.

    The show has never been cancelled until now. The show was just left hanging several times and the premiere dates were constantly moved around to fill the show in for holes in the schedule.

    I like "smart" comedies (like this & to some degree Parks & Rec, though I don't think it's quite as smart) AND 2 Broke Girls.

    There are all different kinds of humor. None is necessarily more valid than the rest. Chris Farley made a career out of (in his words) "see fatty fall down" comedy, even as his SNL castmates were doing more so-called sophisticated things.

    A show like Community wasn't trying to make anyone seem stupid, I don't think. It was just doing a particular brand of comedy. And it was was as broad as comedy gets at times, unless you think featuring a monkey AND naming it "Annie's Boobs" is subtle.

    2 Broke Girls is "smart" comedy? The show relies on sexual double entendres for 90% of its laughs. I find the show to be funny, but I'd hardly call it "smart".
