    @angryjedi Except I get the impression that NBC doesn’t really pay attention to the online/streaming viewership, which should be easily trackable…

    From Harmon’s tumblr post:

    “I’m 39, now. The friends my Mom warned me about are bigger now, and older, bloodying my nose with old world numbers, and old world tactics, like, oh, I don’t know, sending out press releases to TV Guide at 7pm on a Friday.

    “But my Commodore 64 is mobile now, like yours, and the modems are invisible, and the internet is the air all around us. And the good friends, the real friends, are finding each other, and connecting with each other, and my Mom is turning out to be more right than ever.”

    @scribl I think I know the answer to this already, but is Friday night not prime-time in the U.S.? Our “Channel 4” used to be known for having the absolute best lineup of Friday night comedy that there was between about 9 and 11. This was back in the Friends/Frasier days, though — it’s never been quite as good since.

    It sucks that they seem to have no faith in Community. It has produced some of the most passionate fans I know, but like so many other things, if there isn’t a suitable metric by which you can measure than, it goes in the bin. Viewing figures are the Metacritic of the TV world.

    @angryjedi Except they’re already moving it to Friday night and only ordered 13 episodes, right? Seems like they’ve already given up on Community. Weird that they’d decide to fire Harmon now.

    Not games-related, but I feel this will resonate with a lot of people here:

    Community is coming back for a fourth season… but without creator Dan Harmon at the helm.

    One would question why they are bringing the show back if not with the original creator in charge — and, according to him, after not even having the decency to get in touch with him to discuss it.

    Guess they figured with someone else calling the shots they might be able make it more “commercial” and successful? No idea.
