It's a shitty day for Maria Bello!
We skimmed a little on this when we were telling you about the TRAGEDY that was NBC shelving Community, but yeah, they're shelving this one too…
Prime Suspect was left off the schedule when NBC did their mid-season inventory. They're to film two more episodes for the season and then…well…that's probably it.
Of course, there's always the chance they'll pick it back up for next season, but c'mon. We're all smarter than that!
UGH! That hipster Whitney!
Ugh! We are blaming Whitney for this nonsense!
Although Community is arguably one of the best-written, funniest comedies on television, NBC pulled one hell of a switch-up for its mid-season schedule, which has left the series SHELVED indefinitely!
Starting Thursday, January 12th, 30 Rock will take its place in the 8pm time slot, while Up All Night will move to Whitney's spot at 9:30pm. That mess will instead be moved to Wednesdays at 8pm, to be followed by the equally disastrous-looking Are You There, Chelsea, formerly titled Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea.
Oh yeah, and that Maria Bello Prime Suspect show is gone, too. Back to Community, though -
The cast and crew seem to be just as shocked as everyone by the change, and HIGHlariously took to Twitter to discuss!

TV critics are really irritated by Maria Bello's fedora in the new NBC drama Prime Suspect and they're doing everything in their power to get it to go away.
First, they went to NBC's head of entertainment Robert Greenblatt, who said:
"I like the hat. It’s iconic and, you know … [1970s Kojak star] Telly Savalas, didn’t he have a hat? … I hope you all write about the hat."
Not happy with that answer, they moved on to executive producer Alexandra Cunningham and told her it's both distracting and outdated. Her response?
"It’s very accurate in terms of NYPD detectives. They all seem to wear hats. I don’t know whether it’s a weather thing or whether it’s one of the only fashion statements they can make, considering how buttoned down they all have to be. But I was surprised by the number of fedoras, especially given it’s 2011. So it’s Maria’s iconic idiosyncrasy."
Alright, and what about Maria Bello. Does wearing the hat bother her? Nope! Not even close. Bello says:
"I was obsessed with the hat. Yes. I feel like it’s my magic hat. When I put it on, I was this character. It felt right to me. It felt like this is who Jane is. And I got it from my friend Claire. The first night I ever met her, she handed me the hat. She said, ‘This belongs to you.’ And I put it on, and for me, it’s Jane Timoney."
And there you have it.
Remember critics, there's a reason why you're writing about TV shows and not fashion.

We cannot commend him enough for his tireless commitment to aiding so many people in need!
Ever since last year's devastating earthquake in Haiti, celebrities such as director Paul Haggis, Maria Bello, Olivia Wilde, and countless others have completely immersed themselves firsthand in the struggle to rebuild the broken country.
Sean Penn, however, seems to have gone above and beyond, and a year later, admits that he has no plans to leave the country.
In fact, when he's not working, he will live in Haiti permanently - as the camp manager for 55,000 displaced residents!
“There’s a great thing Paul Newman said about his long marriage. ‘As it turns out, we still love each other.’ That’s how I feel: ‘As it turns out, I’m still here.’ The amount we’re getting done, versus what they’re doing — which is nothing. Quite honestly, if you want something done, do it yourself. They said, ‘You can stay if you’re effective. If you stop being effective, we kick you out.’ I started paying for stuff, and that was when I thought, ‘OK, I better figure this out, because at this burn rate I’ll last about a week and a half.’ I didn’t have commitments, except for way in the future; I had nothing pressing. I got practical issues, like everybody. I had two federal cases against me at the time, and one criminal one. I had just got taken for one half of everything I had in the divorce, so it’s not like I don’t have to work. A much more profound change in life for me personally was not being able to raise my son in a whole family through high school. When I first came to Haiti, the decision was to go for two weeks. Let’s face it, I’m a person that feels pretty alienated from the rest of the world and never felt understood by anyone. There’s no end point. This is where I’ll be when I’m not working, for the rest of my life.”
Say what you want about him, but we're completely blown away by his compassion and resilience!
It's one thing to cut a check - which is a wonderful gesture - but to immerse yourself in such hardship, and give up your life to help those in dire need?! Heroic!
Keep up the good work, bb! You have truly gone above and beyond in your efforts, and we know that there are thousands of lives grateful for what you've done!

Girlfriend is traumatized!
Watch this HIGHlarious video of Salma Hayek doing an interview for Grown Ups with Maria Bello and Maya Rudolph, but it was interrupted by what must have been one vicious looking snake!
We wouldn't be surprised if she literally pooped herself — she is TERRIFIED!
