Community Verges on Cancelation

NBC is acting like a wounded animal, wild and reckless, and it’s doing anything and everything to cling to its dwindling ratings (which can be viewed here and here). That means bad news for Community, a show with poor ratings, but an impressively loyal fan-base.

On Monday, NBC announced changes for its midseason line-up, leaving Community somewhere on the cutting room floor.

Also among these changes, Whitney (now placed at the prime location of 9:30 p.m. on Thursday) will be moved to Wednesday at 8. Both 30 Rock and Up All Night will move in to fill in these gaps. The other changes are a confusing combination of new and old unappealing dramas and reality shows.

But it’s the removal of Community that seems to have the Internet resounding with disapproval. Quite a few individuals have taken to writing articles announcing the downfall of American television. As a fan of the show (and melodrama), I’ll buy it. I do believe NBC is making an enormous mistake. With shows like The Voice and Smash, NBC is trying too hard to capture the interests of the American majority – fans of shows like American Idol and The Big Bang Theory – sadly at the expense of its current audience.
