  • More Guys With Kids scripts? Gah!! And not in a good way! Just cancel it already and give the time slot to something good, like Community!

    And I also want it known that I really wanted to like Guys With Kids. I thought it’d be one of my favorite new shows, and I like Jimmy Fallon. But after seeing the first few episodes, I know I’ll never watch another.

  • Gosh, I love Community. I wish they would bring it back already! And TNT is awesome for having a Supernatural marathon. I own all 7 seasons on DVD, but I’ll still watch it. :)

  • First Louie, then Homeland, now this new Jekyll and Hyde show. The totally awesome F. Murray Abraham is really getting around these days. Good deal, good deal. He was off the map for too long!

  • I heard Community won’t be on NBCs schedule until sometime in January. Any truth to that?

  • This is a bad year for me, tv-wise, as Psych is not back yet — not til Feb, and I guess that means no Christmas episode again this year. Community is not back, yet. Fringe and Gossip Girl are ending. I started to like Animal Practice and they cancelled it (of course, I’m still mourning the cancellation of Rubicon!). And where is Smash already?

  • Here’s an idea. Instead of unveiling Halloween related games, why not unveil NEW COMMUNITY EPISODES already. I’m tired of waiting for the best show ever.

  • I contacted nbc on their website and requested that they show 2 new community episodes tonight, october 26th, because cancelling the premiere last week offset the schedule of having their new halloween episode air the friday before halloween. so I think the halloween episode for season 4 is the second episode, so airing two new episodes tonight, oct. 26, instead of grimm, would allow that particular episode to air in time for the holiday , which is wednesday oct. 31st, in case nobody at nbc is counting.
