When recently asked, ‘Hey, what the hell kinda crap are you trying to pull?’, at the Television Critics Association, NBC chief Bob Greenblatt spoke about his hopes for the network’s roster of comedies. He mostly focused on Up All Night and The Office but screw those shows. What’s up with Community? Greenblatt is “absolutely hopeful” this shortened season (premieres February 7th) will do well enough to warrant a fifth season. He also speaks out about what to expect now that creator Dan Harmon is gone. “I think you’ll see relatively the same show that you did before, maybe with a little bit more heart built into it. But we didn’t fundamentally change it.”
Heart? If I wanted heart, I’d watch Captain Planet. I watch Community for bizarre pop culture dissections and bouncy moments. They had better not have rid the show of bouncy moments.
