Here’s the thing.
I’m gonna go all conspiracy-mode for a moment, so forgive me.
Community won’t launch til February of 2013 in the US.
Community will launch in November of 2012 in Canada.
That’s right folks. For three months, Canada will get Community - and because Community’s fans are, shall we say, rabid. They’re going to download HD originals from Canada because they want the show.
Ratings on NBC, when they finally get around to showing it three months later, will be weak. The show will likely get the axe. NBC will blame the fans for not loving it enough. They get rid of their “problem” and we get screwed again.
Wish this was an October 19th kind of thing.
