Next Series Of Community Pulled From Schedules, Delayed Indefinitely

The fourth, final and newly restaffed series of Community was scheduled to get rolling on NBC come October 19th. Not any more.

With a short, official statement, the network made it know that the show was being yanked from the calendar and left to chill in limbo for a while. Also getting frozen is Whitney but… we don’t care about, do we?

Given the success we’ve had for the past four weeks – including winning the first week of the season in adults 18-49 – we’ve decided to continue to concentrate our promotional strength on our new NBC shows that are scheduled Monday through Wednesday…

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.

So it seems that the shows on hold will likely be scheduled as other NBC programs fall by the wayside and shrivel up.

Seems like a fairly sensible plan. Community and, I suppose probably also Whitney, have an established fan-base. The audience for Community is pretty small, I believe, but also hardy. They can stand a certain amount of being jerked around like this.

Or at least I’d think so, if Dan Harmon was still involved. Will the Community-core have eroded now that the show has been taken away from its creator? I’d like to think that fans would at least give this new iteration a chance.
