Motherfucker. 30 Rock is pretty much at or even somewhat past its sell by date, and it makes sense for Community to wrap things up in season four, but... damn.

I'd rather see them get a chance to end their stories before they get too old, but even so. Crap.

That said, like Dan said, it would make sense if Community ended after four years since, traditionally, that's the length of a college career. Of course, Greendale is largely incompetent so four years might be giving it too much credit.

If I recall correctly, the first season took place in one semester. They mention it in the season 2 opener when trying to find a new class to take together. I thought it was weird since they celebrated holidays that are not close together.

This is me being extremely torn.

On the one hand, I want Community (and Parks and Rec, but for the moment this is what I'm focusing on) to be awesome forever and ever and ever amen. #SixSeasonsAndAMovie

However, I'm a BIG believer in ending things when they're good. I would rather have four awesome seasons than seven up and down ones.

Torchwood had 3 full order seasons (admittedly, in the British sense), and then cut down their 4th season heavily.

The resulting Torchwood: Children of Earth was by far the show's finest moment.

Admittedly, the two shows don't directly compare in terms of content, but a shorter running order isn't automatically a portent of doom. In Britain, at least.

Teasers for Revolution, Go on, Animal Practice, and The New Normal. Revolution looks like it's trying to be Lost but not in the good way. Among other things, I have an incredible problem with the premise. If whatever happened caused even the cars to stop working, then that means it took out combustion meaning that fire doesn't work. GAH! This is what living with engineers for the last six years will do to you!

They had two seasons and cut down the third you mean.

Not necessarily. It could siphon off some viewers from Grimm which it's leading into. It really all depends. The Friday night slot is not a guaranteed death sentence anymore. It helps that nothing on the night is a ratings giant. It'll all depend on what else it has going against it.

Eh? Revolution looks like an Apocalyptic future with no government and people fighting with each other. How does it look like Lost? If you said it looks like a ripoff of Jericho, then you would be onto something.
