NBC has officially ended their on-again, off-again relationship with Community, a show with a cult and a tumultuous history, after five seasons.
Twitter isn't big enough to hold my condolences and more importantly my gratitude to the best fans, cast and crew in TV history. Excelsior.

Though cast member Yvette Nicole Brown tweeted that it was "MIRACULOUS" a "bubble show" could stay on the air for such a long time, fans are still saddened by the abrupt ending to the series. (At least I read that it was abrupt. I stopped watching a few seasons back. Sorry Dan Harmon. )

As it is every year around this time, the last few days have been rough, as new show pick-ups and old show rejects have slowly rolled out. Shows with Strong Female Leads that have been cancelled include Trophy Wife, Suburgatory and The Carrie Diaries. On a more positive note: say goodbye to Mixology and Dads by by calling a woman a whore and/or making a racist joke.
At least these little heartbreaks remind us of a couple of life's consistencies: There's no accounting for the decisions of network executives and there's no such thing as true television justice.
