Community Renewed for (shortened) Fourth Season!

May 12, 2012

Human Beings rejoice! Whether you align yourself with the pillowmen or the blanketeers, you can take off your darkest timeline goatees and yell out a big POP POP to celebrate the cool cool coolness of Community’s fourth season renewal!

Even though it’s a super magical thing, not all the news is happy. This is a shortened season. This time around we are only getting 13 episodes of this awesome show (30 Rock is getting the same treatment, but for them it’s their seventh and final season).

Another scary thing, Dan Harmon, the creator and an executive producer of Community, hasn’t signed on to be part of this fourth season yet. I pray that he’ll sign on, the show would’t be the same without him. Read these harsh words from NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt if you are brave.

And on a final note, Community is being moved to Fridays at 8:30! This could be a good thing or a bad thing, as even though they won’t have to compete with Big Bang Theory, Friday night TV watchers are substantially less in number than Thursday night TV watchers.

Community – Origins of Vampire Mythology

April 13, 2012

This week 3.18 million people came to watch Community live. Compare this to the 9.58 million who went to watch a rerun of the Big Bang Theory. Yeah. I know Community has an extremely large following who watch it on Hulu, but still, I can’t believe how many people would watch a rerun of Big Bang instead. Check out how they did in the ratings here.

Elsewhere on the internet, Community won Hulu’s best in show contest! Congratulations!

And, as usual, whether you need help reacting to something, were born in the 80s and still use your phone as a phone, or are just into trains now, Origins of Vampire Mythology is now on Hulu!

Community – Pillows and Blankets

April 7, 2012

Despite the fact that Thursday night’s Community just might have been their best episode ever, Big Bang Theory had Stephen Hawking as a guest star which managed to make Community’s ratings and viewers drop to the lowest since their return. Check out how they did in the ratings here.

I cannot believe that NBC doesn’t see the big problem here. Big Bang Theory airs only on live TV, so if people who want to see Big Bang, miss it, they are unable to see it anywhere else. Community, however, can be seen the next morning on Hulu. I know a substantial number of people who watch Community, but not one of them (other than me) watches it on their television. These viewers are part of a relatively new but REALLY important demographic, as each month more and more people turn to their ‘devices’ to watch their favorite shows. And, I’d bet that these viewers are part of the much sought after age group demographic as well. So… if the only way viewership is being counted, is by the very out-of-date Nielsen ratings, well then, they are missing a HUGE part of how people now watch shows! If these viewers were counted in the total, I’m sure Community’s fan-base would show.

As always, whether you missed the grand kerfuffle that tore apart New Fluffytown or just want to put on your magical friendship hats again, Pillows and Blankets is now on Hulu.

As a side note, so all those big executives know how much we love Community, go vote for them in this “best in show” poll on Hulu. They are in the final round against the Walking Dead.

Community Returns March 15th!

February 21, 2012

Hooray my friends! Community will be returning on Thursday, March 15th at 8:00!

Though I’m overjoyed to see them return, I find it very annoying that it, once again, will be airing opposite The Big Bang Theory. It is now known that Big Bang Theory kills whatever show(s) go opposite it. Recently, during Community’s hiatus, the ever popular 30 Rock went on at 8:00 and bombed in the ratings. However, if anyone can challenge Dr. Sheldon Cooper, it would most certainly be Mr. Abed Nadir.
