Britta’d Lineup of the Day: People are rightly in a tizzy over news the NBC has decided to pull Community from its midseason lineup.
The critically-acclaimed-but-inexplicably-low-rated sitcom will be replaced by new episodes of 30 Rock starting January 12th. 30 Rock’s traditional 9:30 PM slot will be filled by Will Arnett/Christina Appelgate/Maya Rudolph vehicle Up All Night.
Meanwhile, critically-maligned-but-inexplicably-popular sitcom Whitney will move to Wednesdays, where it run in an 8-9 PM “comedy block” with the Laura Prepon-starring Chelsea Handler book adaptation formerly known as Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me Chelsea.
The Hollywood Reporter says it spoke with sources who claim Community will return to NBC “at a date to be determined,” but the New York Times’ Brian Stelter says that while the show has not been formally canceled, “its chances of being renewed next year are painfully low.”

I am thoroughly saddened by this… thanks for ruining my day. Dear internet: please save this show!
