Fans of the Community sitcom plan on showing their support for the comedy by staging a flash mob at NBC’s 30 Rockefeller Center headquarters in New York. The event is scheduled to take place from 1-1:30pm today.
The event’s Facebook page notes, “The Flash Mob will start with the singing of O’ Christmas Troy (same lyrics as O’ Christmas Tree just replacing “Tree’ with “Troy”) while facing the Huge Christmas Tree! It will end with the chant Go Greendale, Go Greendale, GO! … You bring a picture or drawing of a Christmas tree and a Black goatee (which can be made out of construction paper or felt).
As fans are all too well aware, the low-rated comedy has been shelved for mid-season and NBC hasn’t decided when to bring it back. After 10 episodes, Community is the lowest-rated NBC comedy and currently averages a 1.6 in the 18-49 demographic and 3.67 million total viewers. That’s down by 16% in the demo when compared to last season.
UPDATED: Here’s video of part of the event:
