G*D Damn NBC, Stop playing with my heart!
Sad news for Community fans (and Whitney, if there are any) waiting for Oct. 18 to roll here, the wait will just have to continue because NBC has decided to keep the two comedies on ice with no official return date in sight. This is to focus on their Monday to Wednesday night lineup up into mid-season. NBC official statement is
Given the success we’ve had for the past four weeks – including winning the first week of the season in A18-49 — we’ve decided to continue to concentrate our promotional strength on our new NBC shows that are scheduled Monday through Wednesday and have therefore decided to holdCommunity and Whitney from their previously announced premieres of October 19th. 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. When we have a better idea of viewing patterns in the next few weeks, we will announce new season premieres of Whitney and Community.
The schedule changes they are talking about more than likely means we are taking one of the new shows out into back to kill it with a shotgun but I could paraphrasing. in all honestly as well, I thought Whitney was canceled. I know some of the host on the podcast are fans of Community but what say you: Are you okay with this move or do you want to riot in the streets?
