    Sad news for lovers of quality television everywhere: NBC has just pulled Community from its midseason line up, putting it on hiatus.

    Source: AV Club

    While it has been confirmed that, at the very least, the entire third season will be filmed and aired, nothing is assured beyond that. This season may very well be the last we got from this show.

    Personally, I love this show. It's one of those rare pieces of entertainment that manages to be both hysterical and affecting. The writing is exceptionally, and I can say without fear of hyperbole that it has one of the greatest casts in the history of television.

    So I have two messages. Other fans, go out and support this show anyway you can. Sites like this are certainly a start, and if you haven't already, go out and buy the dvds. Non fans, definitely give this show a shot (If you do own it, they make great gifts). It relies a lot on continuity (recurring jokes and character relationships), so you will definitely want to start from the beginning. Go check it out (anyway you can) and show your support; this show needs all the love it can get.

    /serious

    Come on, this show deserves six seasons and a movie at the very least!

    Saw this news last week.
    Chang "hey Winger, going home alone tonight? GUAY!"
    Thats what i think. This show is gold!
    NBC says ratings are low and Community doesnt follow conventional sitcom methods.
    SO?? Thats why its a great show, they toss conventional out the window. They have an episode where the try out 6 different timelines, a DnD episode, and PAINTBALLLLLL

    Please bring it back NBC, you suck at everything else, at least you could grace us with one good show.

    Back to watching Whitney
    /Sarcasm, that shit sucks/

    :(. Feel sad now. Need blu-ray release, preferable region free as well. It's 2011, dvd release only when they are filmed in HD is pathetic.

    For some reason no one watches it. It gets high reviews and stuff but I guess everyone is too busy whacking off on Thursday nights.

    Everything that keeps me sane during the week is going off air. Walking Dead hiatus until February, an unannounced hiatus for this till god knows when, next thing you know Dexter will get cancelled and Yahtzee Croshaw will die in a tragic car accident with Doug Walker. Then I'll just jump out a window or something.

    I think I will be able to keep my cool... unless the guys from RedLetterMedia die in a sudden house fire (the Plinkett reviews take long enough as it is).

    As for why no one is watching it, I think it is because the show is too smart. It's very demanding in the sense that in order for the show to work, you need to start from the beginning and understand the complex relationships between the characters. Once you do, it's incredibly rewarding, but for many people it is too much of a committment; they would rather stick with simple fare like Two and a Half Men or the Big Bang Theory instead.

    whose up for sending 500,000 paintballs to NBC and demanding more Comunity.

    Come on, at least have them finish college haha


    Oh yeah. thats a good reason.

    Also someone should change the title to "Community on sabbatical" ha
    I guess i just find Community more refreshing and funny, so i catch BBT on the next morning from CBS online.

    Alright, there's been a bit of an update (kind of).

    A writer for the AV Club, the same website that I linked to before, has just posted an article saying that Community will likely get another season despite the shuffling of the schedule. Say what?

    Definitely read it; while I don't want to get my hopes up just yet, he makes a pretty sound argument for the likelihood of more Community.

    Hope for the best.
