The season premieres of the critically acclaimed Community and critically tolerated Whitney are being pushed back from Friday, October 19th to…some other unspecified future date.
What was going to be the launch of an NBC Friday comedy block is now going to be home to some Grimm reruns, and we can thank the “success” of NBC’s season launch for the move. The network, having finished first in adults 18-49 (Yup. You read that correctly.), has decided that any marketing effort put towards the Community and Whitney launch will detract from the current effort behind all that crap they show earlier in the week. THR posits that NBC doesn’t know how to market the two shows yet, and that’s the reason for the delay.
In any event, Grimm reruns. Yay, Grimm.
