Casting News of the Day: Omar Coming: Michael K. Williams — best known as Omar Little from HBO’s The Wire and Chalky White from HBO’s Boardwalk Empire — will play a badass biology professor in the last three episode of Community’s upcoming season, according to showrunner Dan Harmon.
“I want to add a layer of intensity to Community,” Harman explained at the show’s Comic-Con panel. “f the show’s ever been too weird to attract new viewers, you can add water to have less flavor and hope it threatens less people, or you can threaten the hell out of everyone with the kind of intensity and flavor that people will get tired of pretending isn’t awesome.”

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!

Easter Egg of the Day: Want to know why Community is getting canceled? Because it’s simply too amazing for this world.

You already know how chock-full of Easter Eggs it is, right? Well, someone just found the best one yet.

It seems that the writers have been sneaking the word “Betelgeuse” into the script of a single episode each season.

Check out what happened when the word was uttered a third time during the show’s Halloween episode, “Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps.” (Hint: Look behind Annie.)

Pure brilliance.

Oh how I love this show.

Fan Favorite of the Day: A mere two weeks after NBC’s much maligned announcement that it was indefinitely shelving its critically acclaimed primetime sitcom Community due to poor ratings, it was revealed that the very same shelved sitcom that supposedly no one watches won TV Guide’s annual Fan Favorite Poll.
The stars of the show will be featured in three separate collectible covers — i.e. three glossy middle fingers to NBC — which are set to hit newsstands December 1st.  
Some 300,000 people in all cast their vote in the poll. Community managed to top such notable favorites as Dexter, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Chuck, and The Vampire Diaries.

Take that? Or maybe learn from that NBC?

It’s the season of giving, and in the spirit, NBC has generously given Community an upcoming hiatus so its cast and crew can rest, and so its diehard fans can use that time to explore other NBC shows it might enjoy even more, such as the one about that sassy lady who enjoys sex out of wedlock.

At least they gave us this before taking Community away.

I really hope that Community is able to return…
