    NBC orders more ‘Guys with Kids’ despite poor ratings, still no word on ‘Community’

    When NBC kicked freshman series Animal Practice to the curb last week, and replaced it with the second season of Whitney, I thought fellow first-year effort Guys With Kids (which was scoring only infinitesimally better ratings than Animal Practice) would follow and — alas — Community’s fourth season would begin where the stuck-in-the-1950s-themed sitcom (What???

In addition to Dan Harmon losing his job as showrunner of Community, Betsy Thomas has just been sacked/she stepped down (it’s unclear) as showrunner for Whitney. Replacing her is Wil Calhoun, who used to work on Friends. This isn’t going to cause as much of a stir as Harmon’s ousting– because while Whitney’s ratings were always stronger than Community’s, its fanbase is nowhere
