Community: ABC Thinks the Sitcom Will Be Cancelled

community tv showNot long after the ratings for NBC’s Community fell to a new series low, it was reported that Ken Jeong had been cast in a new ABC comedy pilot, Spy.

Spy is based on a UK TV series of the same name and revolves around a well intentioned father (Rob Corddry) of a highly intelligent and verbal son (Mason Cook). They’re the complete opposite and the dad inadvertently takes a job at the Secret Service in order to prove himself a worthy father.

Jeong will play a mischievous character, Examiner. The role is played by Robert Lindsay in the original which is currently available on Hulu.

While Jeong’s role in Spy is in second position and contingent on Community’s cancellation, ABC is clearly betting the NBC comedy won’t be back next season.

What do you think? Do you think Community will be cancelled? Would you be upset to see it go?

    This is wrong, community is a far better show than what ive seen thepis season
    I think the writers know that too, becuase they’ve already set the show up for its final season
    I hope they dont cancel this show because it is one of my favorites but if they do ill understand

    Community has absolutely no humor value to it at all. I’ve never laughed once watching it at different times.

    I must have a completely different sense of humor than everybody else, because I can’st see how Community is funny. NBC needs to cancel all their comedies and stick to the drama, maybe do 12 versions of Law & Order again…

    NBC (keep these shows):
    Chicago Fire
    Law & Order: SVU (bring back stabler, so the ratings will be good again)
    Grimm (obviously)
    bring back Do No Harm (was actually good, but in a bad time slot)

      if your not laughing its definitely an issue with the quick witted humor of this show, not everyone gets it. Since none of the shows you listed have depth, i see why…

    Look at NBC show ratings. There are at least 6-7 other shows that don’t have the fan following doing worse than Community. NBC doesn’t have enough options to cancel all of them.

    I actually grew tired of this series, and that is so not cool. I really enjoyed the first season.

    I have watched Spy on Hulu and do not see it working in the States.

    Of course Community will be cancelled… it’s unique; funny and clever. Also its ratings have gone UP (but not enough). Networks still want 1980s ratings and don’t understand that TV watching trends have radically changed with new technology.
