Danny Pudi and Donald Glover
Apparently, no one ever told Community to beware the ides of March. (Et tu, Dean Pelton?) The mind reels at how the obsessive Abed (Danny Pudi) would react to March 15 being the date designated by NBC for the return of the never-say-die sitcom — and winner of TV Guide Magazine's 2011 Fan Favorite cover — from a most unwelcome three-month hiatus.
Once again kicking off NBC's stubbornly low-rated comedy lineup (8/7c), this endearingly zany cult comedy wastes no time ...
Yvette Nicole Brown, Malcolm Jamal Warner
Watch out, Subway! Shirley is going into the sandwich-making business.
When Community returns Thursday (8/7c, NBC), Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) is taking the plunge... twice! Not only is she going to remarry Andre (Malcolm Jamal-Warner) but she's also going to put into practice those entrepreneurial skills she learned in the hallowed halls of Greendale. With Pierce (Chevy Chase) as a backer and the dean (Jim Rash) as the liaison, how could she fail?
Community boss "confident" about Season 4 renewal
"We're feeling pretty confident," executive producer Russ Krasnoff said Saturday at the PaleyFest panel for Community about a possible fourth-season renewal for the NBC comedy. "Look, it's because of the people who love our show and the fact that they were so upset when it went away... [Also,] the people at NBC love the show."
Love doesn't necessarily translate to airtime, however. The cult-favorite sitcom went on an indefinite hiatus in early December, a move that did not bode well for the show's future. Only last month did NBC announce that Community would return on Thursday, March 15 at 8/7c to continue its third season.
With so many shows on the bubble, can smart comedies survive?
When moderator Alan Sepinwall of HitFix.com asked star Gillian Jacobs how she liked having her character Britta become synonymous for being the worst at everything, she joked, "It's so great because I feel that sort of hit right before the show got pulled. So NBC 'Britta'd' it. We gave our fans such a great...
Community star Danny Pudi and his wife, Bridget, are first-time parents with twins.

Nerds and nudity. What more could a fan want from an episode of Chuck?
Star Zachary Levi directed Friday's episode, "Chuck vs. the Hack Off" (8/7c on NBC), in which Chuck (Levi) and his team are trying to track down a possibly devastating computer virus. "It's one of our nerdier episodes," co-executive producer Chris Fedak told reporters at a set visit this month. "There's not as many hack off jokes as you'd think [there would be]. We learn a little about Chuck's backstory, who he was before he met Sarah, a little bit about the hacker side of Chuck."
It has scarcely been the best week on Community's set. On November 14, NBC announced its January schedule, and the acclaimed cult comedy about the eccentric members of a community-college study group whose outsize, genre-bending adventures frequently boggle the mind was missing in action.
The timing couldn't be better for someone to make a commercial touting Greendale Community College, the madcap home for NBC's eternally underappreciated cult-com Community (8/7c) — but does it have to be Dean "Call me Craig" Pelton (the fearlessly funny Jim Rash) pulling the strings? With fans and critics having what seems to be a collective meltdown over the news that NBC is temporarily benching ...
French Stewart of the late '90s sitcom 3rd Rock From the Sun will guest-star on NBC's Community, Entertainment Weekly reports.

"We're gonna have more fun and be less weird than the first two years combined!"
So sings — yes, sings — the Greendale Community College study group as NBC's Community kicks off its third season.

The flashy opening number speaks to creator Dan Harmon's plan for the third season, which he says won't be as stunt-episode heavy as the self-referential comedy has been in the past.
"I don't want to disappoint any more of the more hyperactive savvy fans that love nothing more than the fact that the show is completely unpredictable," Harmon first told TVGuide.com at the end of Season 2. "I have to continue a promise to the audience to always engage them in every part of their brain that love television. But at the same time I've got to get my mom more comfortable with the show."
But doesn't an elaborate song-and-dance routine fly in the face of that?
Geek-gasm alert! Community's Danny Pudi will make a cameo on Chuck this season, AOL reports.
Details of Pudi's role are being kept quiet, but he will appear in the fifth episode.
