Chevy Chase has been feuding with the show creator. There is a ranting voice mail from him online if you care to listen.

Yeah I've heard about it, it's upsetting, I hope they work things out, I'd really hate to see him leave the show.

Man I feel like tonight's episode might just be the best episode of Community yet.

I dug it, but to me Pillows & Blankets was one of the best 30 minutes of television ever.

They fired Dan Harmon (Show Creator) from the show.

Yeah, it'll be interesting to see how much that changes things.

I loved that all of the stars took to twitter to openly express their support for Dan. The two show runners they got to replace Harmon are decent enough, but this show was Dan's baby. I'm not sure how it will work or if the stars will feel the same way about it with him around. The Friday night time slot is a pretty crappy assignment.

I'm really bummed this show doesn't get more love from the network, it's the best show on network TV of my adult life.

On one of the talk shows I listen to they said Friday is where they put shows to die.

Whitney was also moved to Friday.

Fringe has excelled on it's Friday spot. By that I mean it still hasn't been canned.

But then the only bearing really on when a show is airing is the advertisements being missed as I can't imagine many people still watch TV shows as they are being aired anymore. DVR is the bane of all great television show concepts.

Friday is not necessarily a death sentence, but next season will likely be Community's last. Also Fringe has come very close to cancellation more than once, the only thing keeping it going at THIS point really, is syndication.

Neilsen now puts out ratings they list as +7 where I believe if you DVR the show and watch it within 7 days of airing they count that viewing.

However I do not think advertisers take that into consideration much.

Nielsen ratings are the worst system ever. So many people who watch TV do not own a Nielsen box, and therefore their "vote," as it were, does not count. Very stupid.

Dufuq is a Nielsen box?

A box makes it so your viewing habits are counted in their sampling, but getting one requires them to contact you and ask you if you want to participate.

I watched all of the show over about a week and a half (thank you, Hulu!) and it is now one of my favorite shows. Granted, I think it started slowing down after season two and it just dropped after season three. It really sucks that this always happens to good shows, but the show was going to have a short life anyway.

My optimistic view for tonight's Community finale...

City College is going to burn down Greendale during the battle. Greendale, being a shitty school, has no digital records and everything will burn, including the Greendale 7's records. No one can graduate and all have to re-enroll at CC. Eventually the group will overturn CC's dean and make room for Dean Pelton to take over. ANOTHER FOUR YEARS FOR JEFF! EIGHT SEASONS AND A MOVIE!!!

I know that won't happen, but Disney taught me to be a dreamer.

Dan Harmon is back. Pretty big deal.
