NBC promised us Community and Whitney on October 19th, but things have changed…They have put them on hold for now because their new series are doing so well. An NBC spokesperson said, “Given the success we’ve had for the past four weeks – including winning the first week of the season in [the] A18-49 [demographic] – we’ve decided to continue to concentrate our promotional strength on our new NBC shows that are scheduled Monday through Wednesday and have therefore decided to hold COMMUNITY and WHITNEY from their previously announced premieres of October 19th. Without having to launch these comedies on Friday at this time, we can keep our promotion focused on earlier in the week — plus we will have both comedies in our back pocket if we need to make any schedule changes on those nights. When we have a better idea of viewing patterns in the next few weeks, we will announce new season premieres of Whitney and Community.”
I guess they were anticipating more failures! That’s good for the network! That never happens.
Honestly, I could care less about Whitney, but am anxious for Community to return. I don’t know how much longer that show can go on, so I’m just savoring the moment like a crazy stalker…no big deal. I might want to wear Chevy Chase’s skin to my birthday party. Is that weird?
