If you haven’t already heard, NBC has taken Community off the air for the mid-season schedule. It’s not cancelled, but it’s not too far-fetched to think that it might be very soon especially with it’s low TV ratings this season.

This surprises me to some extent because I really, really love Community. A lot. I think it’s one of the smartest and wittiest TV shows to come around in a long time, but at the same time I can see how it’s humor can be lost on a lot of people who don’t have a clear grasp of nerd culture, pop culture, or in most circumstances surrounding the show’s premise, both.

There’s been a lot of uproar on the show’s early “cancelation” and it brings me back to the time Fox pulled Arrested Development off the air…and then it became this hit TV show with a surprisingly large cult following (and a movie!). Maybe that’s what will happen to Community. Who knows. I just know that if NBC cancels the show altogether, TV is going to be a lot less funny. :(
