Community has always been on the bubble. The show does well in its demographic, but has never had high ratings. But after five seasons, the show will have amassed 98 episodes -- two shy of the most syndication-friendly number -- while much of NBC's schedule hasn't worked out so hot. So now it seems like it will get to six seasons. The new twist is that there could...

When Dan Harmon, creator of Community, was essentially fired off his own show at the beginning of summer, there was a sense that Community was dead to the world, even if had been renewed for a fourth season. It was like a chicken with its head cut off - still moving forward, but pointlessly. Now there's some good news about the upcoming...
