    What?!?! That sucks.

    But the ratings have been pretty bad, so I can't really fault NBC. And they already ordered the full season, so the episodes will all be made and available sometime/somewhere. It was probably too much to hope that it would make it any longer than a third season, though, so we'll be getting everything we could have expected.

    Well hopefully we at least get the full season aired eventually. Season 4 never gonna happen now. I guess I have plenty of time to come to grips with that fact.

    Looks like there just isn't a place for it right now, but if anything fails, there will then be a spot to bring it back. Also, we don't know how many episodes of all the other shows will have been aired, so it's possible that rather than airing reruns of other shows, they'll air Community instead.

    Community is just too inconsistent. There are episodes of astounding brilliance, but far too many lame ones in between. I cancelled our SP a couple of days ago. I figure I'll just keep an eye on the threads and watch only the really brilliant ones.

    Oh, and HELL YES to 30 Rock being back in January!!! :D :up:

    Surprised that Awake isn't on the list. Saw them filming recently and watched the preview on NBC's website. Looks like a good concept for a show. Man and family are in an auto crash; Husband switches waking up between two different realities where in one his wife died, but son lived and in the other, son died, but wife lived. Various things in each reality help inform his job as a detective in the other reality.

    I'm conflicted about this show. I agree that it seems to oscillate between brilliance and total shlock.

    I would probably buy it though if they ever decide to release it on Bluray.

    They killed Prime Suspect too. That and The Playboy Club were their best new shows.

    Brilliance, yes; total schlock, no way. Like any show, some episodes can end up a bit off, where the story they were going for didn't work, or too many jokes didn't quite land. But there is way too much talent in front of and behind the camera with this show for them to produce "schlock".

    I can. It's been up against American Idol, X Factor, Big Bang Theory, and probably some other shows that are also all top-10 or better. NBC has almost never given the show any help.

    Community is one of the best shows on TV, IMO. What episodes are you people thinking fell flat or were schlock?

    I agree with this. Brutal time slot, and I think it sustains its audience fairly well from week to week - i.e. hasn't *lost* much ground. Against those shows, what does NBC expect?

    Where would you have liked them to put it? Monday is out of the question right off the bat. CBS's comedy block is killing it. Tuesday has NCIS and Glee, and then NCIS:LA and The New Girl/Raising Hope. Maybe it could stand a fighting chance against RH. Wednesday has X-Factor, Survivor, The Middle/Suburgatory, Modern Family/Happy Endings and Criminal Minds. None of those shows pulled less than a 3.0 in the ratings, most well above that. You've ruled out Thursday. That leaves only Friday since Sunday is football. I just don't see where else they could put it that would benefit the show.

    Wow, I'm down to one NBC show (Whitney).

    Community is one of the most innovative shows on TV. I'll miss it. Great cast, amazing writing.
