‘Community’ At Last Gets A Premier Date
For fans of the TV series ‘Community’, there is some really good news. The show at last has a premier date for the start of its Season 4. It will basically debut on Feb. 7, 2013. It will return to its home at 8 p.m. ET Thursdays, taking over the spot that will be vacated when “30 Rock” ends. Cast member Yvette Nicole Brown broke the news via Twitter, and later a network rep confirmed the date. Hence it’s official. One has to admit that Feb 7th is still a certain distance away and it’s quite a shift from Oct 19th 2012, when the new season was initially slated to debut.
Well, Community is a pretty popular show and the network probably wants to give it a slot that it rightfully deserves, hence its probably taking its time with the debut. For the uninitiated, Community is about a lawyer is who it is discovered has falsely claimed to have a bachelor’s degree. He is suspended as a result and enrolls himself into Community college. He forms a study group so that he can get closer to an attractive student. The study group includes a millionaire, a former drug addict, a former quarter-back, a single mother, and a film student.

In 2012, Entertainment Weekly listed the show at #15 in the “25 Best Cult TV Shows from the Past 25 Years,” with high praise: “The series’ affinity for ambitious, high-concept story lines (e.g. few shows are willing to turn over an entire episode to stop-motion animation), meta humor, and constant pop culture allusions has helped it earn the kind of fervent fan following some of its higher-rated comedic competitors must envy.”
