This week, NBC announced that “Whitney” would replace recently-canned “Animal Practice” in its Wednesday night lineup starting Nov. 14. Announcement comes after the Oct. 19 preems of “Whitney” and “Community” were delayed earlier this month due to the Peacock’s marketing resources being poured into its Monday and Wednesday night skeds.
So, with “Whitney” now comfortably settled into a premiere date, fans of cult comedy “Community” are left wondering: What the hell, NBC?! Where’s our premiere date?
The laffer’s new showrunners, David Guarascio and Moses Port, have taken to Twitter over the last several weeks to transform that sentiment into something fittingly more comedic.
Granted, “Community” fans are no strangers to indefinite hiatuses, given
the extended absence that the laffer had from NBC’s mid-season schedule
earlier in the year. So, with the anticipated premiere date now preserved only in outdated press releases, Guarascio and Port have offered “Community” fans a small consolation prize in the form of a short, borderline incomprehensible YouTube video that immortalizes the date October 19.
Notably present in the short vid is Chevy Chase, who last month dubbed doing “Community” a “big mistake” during an interview with Huffington Post UK.
Guess that assertion doesn’t apply to YouTube clips.
