I don't think it's a real possibility, I think it's just articles being lazily padded with a paragraph referencing the last pop culture-newsworthy Community bit. edit: oops, nope. http://www.vulture.com/​2012/​05/​harmon-​isnt-​signed-​for-​new-​community-​episodes.html

My dream goal was always four seasons to mirror the fake community college experience (most attend for 5-7 years on average!), so I don't really care about it moving beyond the inconvenience of breaking up the Thursday dynasty for good. I don't even know that it's that bad for them, aside from the stink of being adjacent to Whitney('s vagina - ladies!). They could get lost in the cracks for another couple 13 ep orders.

haha I am so funny

I wonder if Community will have the same low ratings on Friday night boosted by DVR/DVR+7 numbers the same another darling with low ratings does now (Fringe).

I keep reading and rereading this paragraph and I have no idea what the point you're trying to make is. 30 Rock and Community should be cancelled because they have low ratings, like how Citizen Kane didn't do well when it first came out. I...don't follow. Is it just me? You seem like you ended your argument with a point refuting the entire thing. Or at least sorta, because it doesn't really make sense in that context either.

The reason Community got renewed is because while it has a small fanbase, it has a LOYAL fanbase, who WILL buy the DVDs and who WILL undoubtedly follow the show to Fridays and who WILL buy the episodes on iTunes, whereas no one in the entire world gives a shit about Harry's Law. People may watch it, but no one cares. (Like, I used to work in Suncoast Video back when that was a thing that existed, and we couldn't keep Arrested Development in stock when a new season came out but I don't think we ever sold a single copy of CSI, even though I don't think I have to tell you which one was doing better in the ratings at the time.)

Citizen Kane also had a concerted smear campaign directed at it and against Welles by the Hollywood press under the direction of William Randolph Hearst.

As far as I know, Rupert Murdoch is not directing negative press against Community to keep the average TV viewer from watching.

Surprised Whitney got moved to Friday. I hate that show as much as the next guy but I believe it was outperforming all the other NBC comedies by a good margin. Go figs.

I don't know anyone who watched Whitney past the first three or four episodes. I actually gave it a chance but found that it was so bad - due mostly to the secondary characters - that I turned it off. When it was just Whitney and her boyfriend it was tolerable.

They also cancelled a bunch of reality stuff: 'The Marriage Ref,' 'Fear Factor,'  'Minute To Win It,' Who Do You Think You Are?' and 'The Sing Off.'

I really enjoy(ed) "Awake", but I couldn't see how it would become an ongoing series. I do hope they wrap things up satisfactorily in the remaining two episodes. The one aired last week was tremendous. I had never heard of Jason Isaacs before, but he's a compelling actor.

Ouch...the Lovely Future Mrs. Hegemon won't be happy about The Sing-Off. She loves the acapella stuff. It seemed like a good show to me and did good ratings at least at first. Shame.

At least now I know why Best Friends Forever stopped showing up on OnDemand.

Everytime I see him I immediately think of his great performance as the evil British Colonel in the Mel Gibson movie "The Patriot".

Yeah that kind of stinks.. managed to be different from all of the other Idol-type shows, but could still appeal to that audience.

On top of that, they had a pretty light run- what was it, six episodes a year? It was a nice thing to do right around Christmas as well...

Oh well..

I recall it had a half-season run last year.

I was the opposite. My girlfriend wanted to watch the show after catching a couple clips, so we started about 4-5 episodes in. As time went on the show got to be a pretty decent comedy. The secondary characters could be too much at times, but for the most part it was an enjoyable enough show.

Then we went back and watched the first few episodes just to get caught up... Oh my God they were wretched.

I think you guys are basically agreeing with each other. Had you and the wife watched the show in order, do you think you would have made it far enough to enjoy Whitney? I've seen it a few times, and while I don't love it or even go out of my way to watch it (will literally watch Community OnDemand)then randomly pick something on the NBC list to watch) I like the boyfriend and the Indian guy who I'm pretty sure started on 30 Rock.

Speaking of OnDemand, I'm going to miss seeing BFF on the list. Was digging the dynamic between the ladies and wanted to see why he divorced one and the bar tender are just friends.

As far as the quality of the episodes we are, yea. The only difference is that the first few episodes were so completely horrible (I think it was the 2nd episode that my girlfriend, who LOVES this show, said was one of the worst 30 minutes she's ever seen on tv) that by skipping them until I was kind of attached to the show, it became something I would continue watching. It's just a shame for the show's sake that the first few episodes are so very very unwatchable.

She loves this show. I don't know why, but from day one she did. She would watch 500 terrible episodes while saying "I don't know, I still think it could be really good.... let's give it another week."

I... have no say in what we watch...

Chris, What was with the guy on your right? Did they not let him use the bathroom before the game. He reminded me of a 5 year old who needed to go #1.
