Topic: Community on hiatus? WTF?

I heard that NBC is holding Community off for a few months, can any of our TV gurus elaborate?

Re: Community on hiatus? WTF?

Yes, because low ratings. It is said, that 22 episodes will be produced and aired.

NBC says it'll be off the air for only a brief time.

Re: Community on hiatus? WTF?

Thanks for the info

kinda sucks tho  sad

Re: Community on hiatus? WTF?

It's the fault of the american audience. On any other national network (excluding) Community would end on its first season with such ratings. But here we got to season three, which is a great achievement. But still, let's see.

Community is my favourite show at the moment.  This better not be the beginning of the end.   sad

Re: Community on hiatus? WTF?

NBC likes Community, so it's still a coin toss with it.

Re: Community on hiatus? WTF?

I don't understand... this show is so brilliant! The level of humor reminds me of Arrested Development, which is the best comedy show ever... Why the hell does it get low ratings? Is my (our) taste really that different from the masses?

Re: Community on hiatus? WTF?

And what happened to Arrested Development?

Re: Community on hiatus? WTF?

As far as I understand, it will most likely be brought back soon (little break after they air some more eps, then comes back)

Re: Community on hiatus? WTF?

The problem is that it's on NBC which as been sucking lately when it comes to show viewers, and more importantly it's going against the number 1 comedy on TV The Big Bang Theory. Networks typically don't try shows out in different time-slots to see if rating will improve so the show is pretty much screwed

Not necessarily. Community is close to the magical 88-episode number needed for syndication. There are rumors floating around that it might be worth to Sony (the producer of Community) to basically give away the next season to NBC almost for free just so 88 episodes get aired. In which case NBC might just bite and air it - not during sweeps and probably very randomly, but still. (This is what gave Chuck such long legs as well.)

Re: Community on hiatus? WTF?

So after 88 episodes the show can have multiple episodes aired one after another?
