Not All Positive Changes for Thursday Night Comedies on NBC
Last week NBC made several big decisions about its comedy programming. They started by axing the new series Welcome to the Family, which starred Mike O’Malley and Mary McCormack. Secondly, they finally gave a premier date to the fifth season of Community, Jan 2. As you may have heard, this season of the show returns with the creator and original executive producer Dan Harmon, who seat out last season. Also, series mainstay Donald Glover will back in a limited capacity, only playing Troy in a handful of episodes. Community comes back on the air, Jan 2 and will resume Thursday nights at 8 pm ET. Parks and Rec will move to the 830 pm slot in the Thursday lineup.
