Joel McHale and Chevy Chase in Community

I am honestly shocked and a little lost for words- in a good way. With all of the possible companies that could have swooped in to save Community, including Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, or even a traditional cable channel like USA or TNT, I never in a middle years thought that it would be Yahoo to save the day. That is right, the search engine and email website, the one that seems like it has been dying for the past decade showed up when all hope had been lost and will bring us one step closer to #SixSeasonsAndAMovie.

Not much is known about the deal. We do know that the cast and creator Dan Harmon will return for 13 new episodes that will air exclusively on Yahoo Screen in the fall. Screen is the new streaming offshoot of Yahoo that works similar to Hulu, with shows airing online with commercial breaks. Yahoo Screen had previously announced two new original programs, Other Space from Paul Feig and Sin City Saints from Bryan Gordon and Mike Tollin. Both of these shows will have 8 episode seasons, with all of the episodes being released on the same day (the same model that Netflix uses). It is unknown if they will do the same for the new season of Community.

Excited that Community is returning? What are you hoping for in the new season? With the show moving online, they can pretty much do anything they want.

Another week and more entertainment news. Welcome to a new edition of The Pit. This week is going to be a little shorter than usual.

  • NBC is making Thursday funnier by adding an additional hour to their established comedy block. Their new lineup will be: (8) Community, (8:30) Perfect Couples, (9) The Office, (9:30) Parks and Recreation, (10) 30 Rock, and (10:30) Outsourced. As usual I’ll be Tivo-ing The Office, 30 Rock and Community and will not be tuning into the other shows.
  • Conan O’Brien’s new show continues to be funny. Are you watching it?
  • Comic Preview: X-Factor #211. This week Peter David has the X-Factor gang in a battle royal in the streets of Las Vegas as their plan to get the attention of a “death goddess” actually works and they must face off with her undead warriors to free one of her slaves. “What happens in Vegas stays- Ah, gets you killed?”
  • The spy action/comedy/drama Chuck is still easily my favorite show on television and should be yours! If you’ve missed a recent episode, head over here and give the show a chance! It really is a creative high for TV.
  • The Virtual Fall Movie season is in full swing over at Hollywood the Game with a new Batman movie coming out this Friday. Don’t have a clue what I’m talking about? Then check out the site!
