How do you let a piece of unsavory news fly as far under the radar as possible? Announce it late in the afternoon the day before a major holiday. It's hardly a surprise at this point, given how much he's trashed the show, but Chevy Chase is officially leaving "Community." Bet you didn't see that coming.

Today is Friday, October 19th and if you check your Aunt Zelda's TV Guide, you'll notice that despite earlier announcements, the return of "Community" is nowhere to be found. That's because the network gave a rather convoluted explanation that they might want to move it off of Friday night, and keep it in their back pocket for later in the year. Or something. Anyway, that hasn't stopped the cast from making a promo to explain that October 19th can be anything you want it to be.

It hasn't been an easy ride for the critically loved, but mainstream-ignored "Community." After NBC put season three on a hiatus midstream, many wondered if the show would even return. And while it has (losing creator Dan Harmon, bitterly, in the process), it has come in the form of a shortened, thirteen episode season four, which seems to indicate it's the last gasp for the program. And the woes for the show may not be over, as the network are still trying to figure out what do with it.

Oh Chevy Chase, you lovable asshole you. After coming to blows with Dan Harmon during the third season of “Community,” Chase is still around and Harmon isn’t – but before all that came to a head Chase gave an interview to the Huffington Post UK in February to promote the UK DVD release of the second season. It's being printed now as the show hits shelves and once again, his distaste for the comedy comes through loud and clear. During the course of the interview he says that deciding to do "Community" in the first place was “a big mistake.”

You can't please everyone. And award ceremonies, in particular, never please everybody. Voted for by a small group, who are more often than not much older than those in the media, or who watch the shows, awards nominations and the eventual winners are generally frustrating, whether it's in the music, movie or television world. And this year's batch of Emmy nods are no exception.

While the summer is an excuse for the movie studios to roll out their biggest offerings, television executives are much more afraid of warm weather, leaving the television dial mostly as a wasteland of repeats and reality shows. As such, the TV season essentially gets underway in September, and runs through to May (with cable dramas occasionally moving the goalposts a little either way -- "Breaking Bad" starts in July, "The Newsroom" next week).

Though the Green Arrow comic-book character showed up briefly in “Smallville,” fans looking for any story continuation with the CW's newest series adaptation, “Arrow,” will be sorely disappointed. The show is an entirely revamped affair, going for a more down-to-earth aesthetic and characters, but while the show won't appear on the network until fall, those looking for an early peek will get just that if they pack a bag and head to San Diego next month.

The writing's been on the wall for a while, but late last night, only 24 hours after the third season of NBC's beloved, if poorly-rated sitcom "Community" came to a close, Sony Pictures Television decided to break the hearts of the show's devoted fanbase, by announcing (per the AV Club, among others) that Dan Harmon, creator of the comedy, wouldn't be returning as showrunner for the recently-recommissioned fourth season of the show, and that he would be replaced by David Guarascio and Moses Port, who've most recently looked after ABC's show "Happy Endings."

Upfronts, wherein the networks reveal their programming for the TV season to come, take place next week, and, as such, it's the time of  year when invested fans start to bite their nails about their favorite low-rated shows: with many new pilots being ordered to series, the scheduling slots seem to grow fewer and fewer. And no fans have been more nervous than those of NBC's low-rated, but critically-acclaimed Thursday night comedy block.
