Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    Simply said, Community deserves ‘Six seasons and a movie!’

    The show is deeply funny, clever, silly, witty, endearing, creative, sophisticated, smart, goofy, sweet, savvy, and truly a blast to watch. The cast is freaking fabulous, and the writing, beyond brilliant.

    NBC should ditch the horrific Whitney and put its eggs in the Community basket.

    PS – How do you get to be a Nielsen ‘family’? I have my TV on more often than not, and I do not have cable, satellite, DVR, or streaming internet – just an FCC mandated digital converter on top of my old TV. I alone could help Community’s numbers, which do not reflect how much it is watched in those other mediums.

    Community is the only reason I watch NBC on thursday nights, though I do enjoy Parks and Rec and 30 Rock if it ever returns, Community is the best part of the night. The Office has gone stale and Whitney has no bite.

  3. says

    community should be renewed there are only 8 shows that i watch on television and community is one of my favorites, its very well written, and very funny i would definitely love to see more.

  4. Craig says

    Every so often NBC makes a sitcom that is funny, but that doesn’t attract viewers. Scrubs, 30 Rock, and Community are the ones that first come to mind. These are very funny shows, but don’t seem to connect with the Nielsen families. I just hope that Community can last long enough to get to syndication. It would be nice to have at least 100 episodes to enjoy.

    community needs to be renewed!! its one of the most well-written comedies on tv and its so criminally underrated
