  • Next up: Community.

    • I will not be remotely surprised if someone puts the sad, walking dead husk of the show Community out of it’s zombie misery. Other people are still enjoying it apparently, though, so I kinda hope it gets picked up for them even if I’m not watching. The end of season 3 was a great series finale, so I got what I wanted out of it.

      Comment by Christy – May 9, 2013 02:42 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Yup. Can’t even root for it anymore. It’s not the star it once was. Such a shame.

        • Since the above comment worked I’d like to take the time to ask TVLine why most of my comments in the last few days have not posted. Nothing offensive about them so what gives?

          • I seem to have been having a couple glitches with comments today, too. Must just be a site problem or something.

            Comment by Angela – May 9, 2013 09:54 PM PDT  
    • Community has the fact that it’s 16 episodes away from syndication in its favor. A final season of 16-22 episodes would put it in syndication zone. Hopefully that pans out.

      I’m more worried for the totally mismanaged gem that is Hannibal. Not since Firefly have I been worried for a show with such a wonderful cast. Deadline is reporting that chances for a second season are looking quite good. 13 episodes a season, relatively low costs for filming and critical praise. Hopefully they market it better, because it definitely could be on par with shows like Dexter, Walking Dead and other premium shows. Miles ahead of Fox’s the Following.

      Comment by David S – May 9, 2013 03:19 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Hannibal was a show I was immensely curious about, however because of its risque subject matter I decided to wait and see if it was renewed before becoming attached. Somehow networks don’t see this as a possibility when they axe shows or go on a long hiatus between episodes!

      • Comedy Central already has a syndication deal for Community.

      But I couldn’t be happier that “Whitney” was finally cancelled. How it got a 2nd season is beyond me….

      Comment by Jaxguy – May 9, 2013 05:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Refreshing and a new take. Not formulaic yet. Looked forward to seeing Whitney each week. Hard to follow with all the pre-emptions and time changes…All the good ones get canned too early.

    Comment by Lina – May 9, 2013 02:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • So cancelling the higher rated Park & Rec, while renewing the lower rated Whitney is your strategy for making NBC #1?

    • I love love LOVE Parks, but I also love love LOVE Whitney. Keep them both! Lol. With the cancellations of other shows, they totally have room to keep Whitney AND bring more shows. Put Whitney on the same night of their high rated shows and I know it would get good ratings. Those other shows didn’t do well because they just weren’t funny, but I think Whitney could have done well if they stuck to one time slot and better placed. Ughhh I’m pissed. Happy Endings & Whitney canceled… I’m scared to read more articles.

    Comment by manny – May 9, 2013 02:17 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • You are right, NBC doesn’t know what a good show is, which is why they cancelled 4 of their comedies today and 1 earlier in the year. Whitney was awful. Plain and simple. Parks and Rec is pretty much the best comedy they have. I could never get into Go On or Community, but they aren’t too bad. Just not my kind of comedy, I guess. Regardless, I’m glad NBC is cleaning house with their comedies. Most of them suck. I don’t see how you think Whitney is awesome. Oddest thing I’ve ever heard.

      • All of the adults, myself included, and kids I know loved Guys With Kids. Of course it was going to get cancelled because it was actually funny without being tasteless – and then they put it on after The Queen of Trash, Whitney? Which somehow managed two seasons? An outrage!

      Comment by theduck – May 9, 2013 02:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Agreed but I’d give it another year to let the new showrunners some more time – they only had half a season to find their groove, and they could learn from their mistakes of S4…

        Comment by Jonathan – May 9, 2013 07:14 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’ve been waiting for them to cancel Whitney since the first episode. I wanted to like 1600 Penn because I like so many people in the cast, but I couldn’t stand the older son. When I realized he was the brains behind the show and they couldn’t ditch him, I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep watching.

    I know it’s not on NBC, but I really hope 2 Broke Girls gets canned next. I feel brain cells die when even just a commercial for that show comes on.

    Comment by Aimee – May 9, 2013 02:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I could be wrong, but I think 2 Broke Girls got renewed. I believe CBS is just about through with all their renewals and cancellations, and they kept everything mostly the same.

  • I think NBC’s problem is not the shows… Whitney was good. But they are battling soooo many other channels. I think they need to revamp there line up. Oh when they banished Smash off to Saturday that was a great call… Saturday’s usually has nothing on…. I think NBC needs to put more SCI-fi shows on. Leave the dramatic shows for another networks. If I was them I would put Heroes back on the air or a show just like it. Male audiences drive networks especially when sports are not on. There you go shows about sports! Like a family racing drama, a show like Jerry Maguire… and reality tv will pass… I know people like it… but I think that is fading, could be wrong but follow players or those trying out for sports teams as a show…

    Comment by mike – May 9, 2013 02:21 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Shows about sports is a great idea! I have an idea for one about a AA hockey team where the vetran and the rookie are after the same girl, but I’d probably have to change that to baseball for any of the networks to be interested.

  • He might have been great in Book of Mormon on Broadway but 1600 Penn proved that Gad is definitely not someone we want to watch in a network series week after week. Same thing was true of Oliver Platf.

    • Except Oliver Platt is AMAZING week to week in The Big C.

      • That isn’t a NETWORK show, Jen. Big difference. And Laura Linney carries that show, anyway.

    • I can assure you he was excellent in Book of Mormon. I got box seats, and he stole the show. I thought 1600 Penn was fun, and Bruce Campbell’s guest appearance was hysterical. But I guess not everyone felt the same way.

  • I’ll predict that Go On,The New Normal and Community will be the only renewals along with Parks and Recreation.

  • ‘Whitney’ had its moments but didn’t consistently deliver laughs. The only compelling part of the show was the dynamic between Whitney and Alex and even that grew tiresome. I want to like ‘Go On’ because I am a huge ‘Friends’ fan, but ‘Go On’ just isn’t funny at all to me. I want to like ‘Hannibal’ too but that show also doesn’t draw me in. It should be a great show with the interesting premise of a serial killer/cannibal but Hugh Dancy’s delivery just doesn’t do anything for me. Is he trying to have Aspergers because he isn’t pulling it off well at all.

  • Whitney was underrated. Yes it wasn’t perfect, but it’s much better than it ever gets credit for. Great cast and chemistry between them.

  • I thought Whitney improved a lot in season two. 1600 Penn was awful. If Goon ;-) goes on, I hope they do a major overhaul in the cast and concept (get rid of the group therapy and focus more on Ryan’s career. Maybe hire Anne and Owen to work at the station.

    I agree with those who hope Guys With Kids comes back. Sure, it’s an old-school sitcom, but it was genuinely funny and the cast works well together. Anthony Anderson and Tempestt Bledsoe are the standouts on that show! Great chemistry!

  • The New Normal is getting axed next.

    • The New Normal is another show that deserves to stay. It kept getting better and better. NBC is going to lose their entire audience except The Voice people.

  • WHITNEY…..noooooooooooooooooo! I LOVE Whitney! Hey other networks…..Like ABC, where this would fit in nicely, don’t let it become extinct. Take it over. Adding the bar set this year was good to give them some other place to hang out. I personally don’t care for 2 Broke Girls….but I love this! Love the chemistry between Whit and Chris…love the supporting players. This series deserves to keep on going….somewhere else, besides NBC where they will be appreciated.

    • I really liked Whitney as well. I knew it was doomed months ago when they pulled it from the schedule for months. After seeing this happen time and time again the writing was on the wall. Still I have to say it is upsetting to think I was right in this regards. Usually I love being right!

  • I like Whitney – sorry to see it go!
