    So sad... Any Community fans here? Thoughts on the show? Personally I hope NBC changes their mind, but maybe it is just not being wachted enough.

    My wife watches it, I never really got into it. It seems like the humor is quirkier and harder to get into than most of the more popular (and maybe less intelligent) shows on television.

    I watched the first 2 seasons last summer and really enjoyed it. I gave up this season after 3 or 4 episodes.

    I love this TV show. It's really awesome, and there's a lot of cool/geeky references that I guess less intelligent people wouldn't get or enjoy.

    And season 3 has been awesome so far.

    I watch it but I'm not surprised they want to cancel it. The jokes have gotten pretty weak and predictable. Season 2 wasn't all that great.season 3 has its moment but that's not enough to save it.

    It is not getting cancelled guys! Yay! :) It just won't be in NBC's mid-season(?) line up, and will continue in the future. (This was stated by NBC, not just some random guy on the internet.)

    Paintball episode got me hooked to this show.
    The episode with 7 different probabilities tells you how brilliant this show is.

    I like the show, and will be sad if it's cancelled.. It's pretty creative, not boring like most comedy out there right now.. love me some Abed!

    Community is a product of poor writing. The people on it, most of them rather, are all funny as stand-up comedians. I can only imagine it's the writers who need to be fired. Best way to do that is cancel the show and watch the stronger actors flourish on other shows.

    I'm glad it's being cancelled. This season was beyond stupid.

    I'm actually pretty surprised that it's being cancelled. It's still better than a lot of the other crap that's on.

    However, I will agree that this season has been weaker than the earlier seasons, but I can still appreciate how creative it is. It's just not formulaic enough to survive, I suppose.

    Never heard of that show so can't speak on it.

    However, after getting Netflix. Being a person that doesn't watch TV. Almost every show I do like, I never heard of it till it was cancelled/ended.

    The one show I do watch on TV is The Walking Dead. Overall though, no time for TV.

    Good, the show sucked, as do most of the other shows on nbc.

    I never really got into its style (though I only gave it a couple of episodes). I just don't like this kind of humor where the annoying smarmy guy is surrounded by idiots and wins in the end despite making you want to smack him.

    Yes, I enjoy the pop culture references and the occasional witty dialog but the rest of it was just too unbelievable.

    The last clip of an episode always gets me to laugh, whether the ep was good or not. The writing needs work occasionally, but overall I'm a fan. Is it sticking around or not?

    Yes, it is. It's only going to be on some kind of mid-season break, or something similar.

    I bet it never returns despite what NBC has said. It's their lowest rated Thursday night show and has had its lowest ratings this year. NBC is the last place network with a lot of holes to fill. Taking a show of an already weak schedule doesn't bode well.

    I discovered it not that long ago and caught it up right before the current season started. Absolutely loved the first two seasons, but I don't get the newest season, maybe it's better seen as a marathon. Don't get me wrong I love this show, for the same reasons as I love (loved) Scrubs, quirky, the pop references and the self deprecating humour.
