NBC has released a statement, which says:
“Without having to launch these comedies on Friday at this time, we can keep our promotion focused on earlier in the week — plus we will have both comedies in our back pocket if we need to make any schedule changes on those nights. When we have a better idea of viewing patterns in the next few weeks, we will announce new season premieres of ‘Whitney’ and ‘Community.’ ”
Translation: We’re already making a lot of money from the dice we rolled a few weeks ago and don’t want to break that streak, so we’ll play these cards when we start fucking up.
Good god, NBC. Stop toying with that show so much.
