The thing I don't understand is community/30 rock and especially parks and rec are a billion times better than big bang theory. But nobody watches them. Are Americans just stupid or is something else stoping them from watching?

They need a laugh track to tell them when there's been a joke.

Big Bang Theory started out good, but became less geeky, therefore less nichey and more and more like Two And A Half Men 1.5. I totally understand the rising success of it, it's become a very broad comedy. Community is pretty much the polar opposite of it.

Spot on, it was such a great show to start with. The downfall started when they introduced all the other female characters (and thus broadened its appeal). It's quite low down the pecking order in my viewing now.

It was always rubbish IMHO but some people love it so clearly it wasn't a cut and dried stinker.

In addition to that a fourth season would guarantee syndication money, so I'd say there's an 80-90% chance that it'll get renewed, which will at least allow them to finish the community college arc.
Well, fingers crossed, but it is NBC so I have no faith in them to make the right decision whatsoever.

Can't hardly wait! Presumably they'll make some gag about the situation in that episode too.

Glad it's coming back. I love this show and will be picking up the boxsets. A fourth season would make me a happy boy!

It seems the Thursday 8pm slot is a death slot but 30 Rock has been beginning to wain for a while now. I haven't managed to finish the last season yet and start the current one.

Can't wait. Currently watching series 1 for the third time, managed to get one of my mates into it after nagging him for months.

Any news on series 2 getting a UK DVD release?

At least it's not getting ditched though, I actually don't mind as it helps to spread the comedy a bit further out into the year.

After having recently rewatched all of Community I realised how great it really is and would be such a shame to end so soon.

I'm happy it's back, but I'm disappointed they've left it in the same timeslot where it will no doubt continue to get hammered by TBBT and American Idol. Hopefully if it can improve on the numbers 30 Rock has been doing in the timeslot the NBC execs will start to realise just how good it is.

It's good news for those who haven't seen it but it won't help the show sadly

I just bought the Blu-ray boxset a couple of months ago, I don't think I ever watched the 6th season so looking forward to revisiting this.

Still waiting for the movie.
