NBC released its 2011-12 midseason schedule this week, and notably absent from its lineup is comedy Community, which has been struggling in the ratings so far this season. The network shuffled other shows around into different time periods and slotted in a few newcomers, which unfortunately left Community and cop drama Prime Suspect out in the cold - for now.
While the network won't confirm its future plans for either show, word is that Community is not considered 'Cancelled' at this point in time, and its full third season will likely eventually air in its entirety. As for a fourth season renewal, its prospects don't look too bright at this point. The show's viewership will undoubtedly have to improve if and when it returns to the air later this season.
