As a twentysomething liberal arts grad, it's pretty much a pre-requisite to love post-modernism. The more meta something is, the better. So needless to say, I've been a huge fan of Community since the beginning (my massive crush on Donald Glover might have helped a little too). But then somewhere in the middle of Season 3, I felt my passion waning. When I first tried to share my concerns, fellow fans shunned me, acting as though I wasn't smart or hip enough to get it.
Then Dan Harmon was fired.

It feels as though Oct. 19 was just yesterday. Could this really be the end?
Thursday's Community will wrap up the fourth season and possibly the series, depending on whether or not NBC decides to give the cult comedy one last shot. We chatted with showrunners David Guarascio and Moses Port to get the scoop on what might be our final trip to Greendale.

There wasn't much to smile about this week in the wake of the deadly explosions at Monday's Boston Marathon. Our favorite videos of the week include Stephen Colbert's monologue dedicated to the victims of the bombings. And thanks to our partners at Tubefilter, we're also bringing you first looks at the new seasons of online series Burning Love and Little Women, Big Cars. Check out those clips and more in this week's roundup of Top Videos.

After mixed reviews of Season 4 so far, many Community fans are considering calling it quits, but stars Alison Brie and Danny Pudi beg you to reconsider. "This is what I'll say about change: Hang in there, fans," Brie said on a conference call Thursday. While there's no denying the void Dan Harmon's absence has created, Brie insists the season finale is more than worth sticking around for.
Community cast at Paley Festival
Six seasons and a movie. That's Community's rallying cry, hashtag and goal, but for now it's only a reality in Abed's Dreamatorium.
But even if the NBC comedy were to end after its current fourth season, star Yvette Nicole Brown isn't mourning. "Four years is great! We made it to syndication, we got to meet all of you guys," she told fans at Tuesday's Paley Festival honoring Community. "As an actor, it's hard to have friends -- who are more talented than you, more beautiful than you or whatever -- that aren't working ... We're in the gravy years of our careers and the gravy years of this show. So if we get to continue another year, it would be an awesome blessing... but remember that whatever happens in May ... we did it together and that's a great thing."

October 19 is here — again!
Four months after Community's fourth season was initially supposed to air, the comedy is finally re-opening the doors to Greendale Community College on Thursday at 8/7c on NBC. But how will the delay affect this season? With creator Dan Harmon out, will the cult hit maintain the same niche voice? Should we get our hopes up for a Season 5? And what the frak happened with Chevy Chase? New showrunners David Guarascio and Moses Port and stars Alison Brie and Gillian Jacobs talked to TVGuide.com to help answer all our Community burning questions.
New Community executive producers Moses Port and David Guarascio will get their first chance to meet the show's passionate fans — and vice versa — at this week's Comic-Con.
The veteran writers...
Despite the backstage drama on Community, the entire cast is set to return for the fourth season of the NBC comedy, Deadline.com reports.

If you're still reeling from Lane's suicide on the penultimate episode of Mad Men's fifth season, don't worry: The actors are too.
Mad Men's Jared Harris discuss Lane's big twist
"It was devastating," Vincent Kartheiser tells TVGuide.com. "There were tears and sadness. But I'm happy that Jared [Harris] had a nice big ending and something that will impact the characters hopefully for the next two seasons. His character will kind of remain with the show even though he won't be there alive."
Just how much impact will the ghost of Lane have on Mad Men's finale, interestingly titled "The Phantom"? In our Q&A, Kartheiser tackles that question and also looks back at a number of questionable decisions (Joan! Rory Gilmore!) his character Pete Campbell made this season. Plus: Kartheiser tells us why Pete will never be fully content....
