NBC Cancels The New Normal, Keeps Community!

nbc cancels the new normal renews community

Another one bites the dust!

After a slew of beloved NBC shows were cut from the upcoming 2013-2014 TV season, the network has sharpened their ax once again.

Their next victim? Ryan Murphy's The New Normal starring Justin Bartha, Andrew Rannells and NeNe Leakes.

The show, which only lasted a season, is the first from Murphy that hasn't lasted past its freshman debut. But, hey, at least he has a TWO-season Glee renewal, as well as a pick up for American Horror Story!

In fact, this means that NBC has axed its ENTIRE first season shows from this season, apart from Hannibal and Save Me.

The good news, though, for Community fans, is that the network DID renew it for another season so don't fret, Joel McHale and Alison Brie lovers!

It's going on for a fifth season after its season finale went up in the ratings! Waah! Still going strong!!

Whichever executive is keeping this show alive, we want to give you a big sloppy kiss!

    Good concept for a show. Great cast. But, somehow it still sucked! I'm not shocked by the cancellation. I wonder if Nene regrets that one-on-one interview with Andy Cohen where she came off as a DIVA and full of herself. As Heidi Klum would say. . .one minute you're in, and the next, YOU'RE OUT! Good thing she didn't give up her "housewife" gig. If she loses that "housewife" gig, Greg might bash her on the radio again for cash and divorce her.

    I think having Barken (MadDog) in any show will be it's downfall
    There are not too many people I dislike, but she is one of them, and I find I'M
    not alone
    She is a money hungry whore

    The New Normal became the sappy predictable Normal half way through the season. Annoyingly so.

    I'd love to hate on NBC right now, but I just don't have it in me after renewing Community. Andrew Rannells was awesome on his show though, with this and how amazing he was on Girls this season, dude is gonna be just fine.

    Not a chance. They've just been renewed for two full seasons. Season 5 and 6 are a go.

    they better have damn well kept community! what was it at the end of last season? Something like 6 seasons and a movie? But i'm enraged that the new normal is gone. Is the person in charge a total idiot? i guess it doesn't matter since the only show i watch on this infernal channel of annoyance is community.

    Re: SPNfangirl83 – the only show i'll** watch is community.

    Word to Comcast: Fire Paul Telegdy, the WORST programmer in TV history.

    Word to Ryan Murphy: When you have a GREAT concept (i.e. Gay dad's surrogate, with daughter and the genius Ellen Barkin as grandmother), leave your self-absorbed, egomaniacal, gayer-than-gay, "me-me-look-at-me" autobiography in the BACKGROUND.

    Ryan, you ruined what could've been a ground-breaking show by shifting the focus from the entertaining "surrogate-with-daughter-and-Ellen-Barkin" story to the asinine NeNe (CAN”T ACT) Leakes and "me-me-me" garbage.

    What a shame.

    Word to NeNe: 14 minutes and counting. THANK GOD!
