NBC has put down freshman comedy series Animal Practice, which will continue to air in its 8 pm slot on Wednesday nights until November 7th. Starting November 14th, NBC, in the network’s infinite wisdom, has decided to start airing new episodes of Whitney. There is no word yet on when fan-favorite and critical darling Community will return from limbo for its fourth season. From the way NBC has handled their comedic properties, one would assume that Crystal the Monkey was in charge. Clearly that’s not the case as Crystal would never cancel her own shows. Hit the jump to get this sorted out.
NBC continues to kick Community to the curb. The studio announced today that it would be bumping the season four return of the fan-favorite show from their expected Friday, October 19th date to an unspecified future date. Sophomore comedy series, Whitney, will also be moving to Fridays, but that show’s debut date is up in the air as well. NBC cited the need for more time to make a marketing push in the case of each series.
I can’t imagine that Community needs to be marketed any more, with the off-season fireworks of creator/showrunner Dan Harmon being let go; the fourth season will be run by Moses Port and David Guarascio. I also can’t imagine a scenario in which marketing will get me to watch Whitney. In the meantime, NBC will air re-runs of the first season of Grimm from 8-9pm on Fridays, which will lead into new episodes of the supernatural procedural. Hit the jump to see who will be returning to Community if and when it returns.
