Community will return on Thursday, March 15. Then 30 Rock shifts to 8:30 p.m., followed byThe Office and Up All Night. Parks & Recreation will come back on April 19 to finish its run after Up All Night concludes its 24 episodes. NBC was toying with the idea of givingCommunity a different time slot than opening the night against CBS’ Big Bang Theory, but perhaps after seeing how other shows like 30 Rock have fared in the slot this season, they realized Community isn’t the worst option here.
But that’s not all. There’s new comedies coming into the mix too. Bent (March 21) and Best Friends Forever (April 4) and the hidden-camera series Betty White’s Off Their Rockers are coming to Wednesday nights.
So this will be at the expense of Parks and Rec for five weeks, but it will then come back at 9:30 in place of Up All Night which is a good thing for ratings.
Why is NBC incapable of making good decisions? We get Community back but they take Parks & Rec away again. It’s only for 5 weeks but still.
