But late Monday, NBC released news that both “Community” and another comedy slated for Fridays, “Whitney,” which were scheduled to have their season premieres on Oct. 19, will have their start dates delayed indefinitely.
NBC’s statement said:
“Without having to launch these comedies on Friday at this time, we can keep our promotion focused on earlier in the week — plus we will have both comedies in our back pocket if we need to make any schedule changes on those nights. When we have a better idea of viewing patterns in the next few weeks, we will announce new season premieres of ‘Whitney’ and ‘Community.’ ”
Just a guess, but maybe Revolution or Grimm encores instead? That's what's filling the time period now. At this moment, APT still shows the premiere episodes listed, but that's likely to change tomorrow.
Tuesday 7am PDT update: Still no alternative programming listed in APT, nor has there been an announcement on APT2Go.
Tuesday 8am PDT update: Here's what the experts say.
Wednesday 7am PDT update: Community and Whitney are both still listed this morning in APT for October 19th. Our client inventories were modified yesterday to allow for either an encore of Revolution or Grimm in the time period, but we're just guessing at this point.
