Regionals are over! (deadline.com) Community is coming back in just 3 weeks. But wait, it's not all good news. NBC is bumping Parks and Rec at 8:30pm and moving 30 Rock in its slot until April 19. Parks and Rec then comes back after Up All Night finishes its season.

Also, there are some new shows debuting on NBC in the spring I probably won't watch.

Great news.

Also, it's not mentioned in the article, but I keep seeing promos for Awake on NBC, a show which piques my curiosity, but I know won't last.

The Awake pilot is on Hulu and Amazon right now, and it is FANTASTIC.

However, I also worry about its ability to stave off cancellation.

Wow. Community has to fight and claw to get airtime, but they're willingly and happily giving airing more episodes of Betty White's Off Their Rockers? That show was just horrendiferous.

Read the link for more, but the gist is P&R was going to end a month early, so all they're doing for now is pushing the new episodes back a little bit so it ends at the same time as the rest of the shows and sliding Community in that spot. P&R gets Up All Night's slot when they're done in mid April and is new from there to the end of the season.

I'd be down for a situation where Parks and Rec & Community split a time slot - each gets to run about 8 episodes then hand off - and they can use the other six weeks for the Olympics or what have you. I don't think I'm going to get that, but I'd be down with it.

I think this is a good thing for Community - or at least, this is a better thing than waiting until the summer (and after the new season announcements) or not actually bringing back at all. I doesn't mean necessarily get season four, but they might!

I think Community's chances for a fourth season are pretty strong. If anything, the hiatus has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that the show has a very vocal, passionate (if small) fanbase. Since everything on NBC gets low ratings anyway, why not stick with a show that already has a built-in audience? Plus, Community is just one more year away from hitting syndication and opening another pot of gold for all involved.

I think it's obvious that they can simply expand things a little bit and end up running 5 shows in the 4 slots by moving things around throughout the season. And I'm glad they're moving some stuff around too. I think that has potential to help everyone.

I'm not sure about Sanjaya. I mean vote for the worst WAS pushing Sundance last week so they must not have as much pull as some people think. I'm betting Sanjaya just has a large base of semi-retarded, tone deaf fans at this point.
