    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???
