'Community' Wins TV Guide Magazine Fan Favorite Poll

Community Fan Favorite'Community,' the cult-hit series NBC pulled from its midseason schedule without any explanation, has won TV Guide Magazine's annual Fan Favorite Poll. How 'bout them apples?

Roughly 300,000 people voted on TV Guide Magazine's Facebook, and 'Community' bested many cult-hit shows including 'Chuck' and 'The Vampire Diaries.' The NBC series will be honored with three different covers for the Dec. 5 issue. The 'Community' issue hits newsstands Dec. 1.

"Because we don't get nominated for awards, this is our fans' outlet to tell us that they care," 'Community' star Gillian Jacobs said in a statement. "They may not see us win Emmys or SAG Awards, but they do have the power in something like this to vote, and you see a lot of people care about our show."

Other nominees for this year included 'Dexter,' 'Game of Thrones,' 'Revenge,' 'Ringer,' 'Person of Interest,' 'Terra Nova' and 'The Walking Dead.' Additionally, fans could submit a write-in vote. Last year, 'Supernatural' took home the title.

In November, NBC announced '30 Rock' would be taking the Thursdays at 8PM timeslot in place of 'Community.' While 'Community' has struggled in the ratings, the series has a very vocal fan community, including an NBC executive.

Series star Yvette Nicole Brown tweeted a photo of Edwin Chung, senior vice president of primetime at NBC, wearing a homemade 'Save Community' T-shirt. "Witness @NBC exec Edwin Chung's support of #Community! #TheyLoveUsToo #ipromise," she tweeted.

Fans have also started various other campaigns including We Love 'Community' Tumblr, Occupy NBC Twitter and the 'Community' Twibbon. Still looking for a way to show your support?
