'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."

Yvette Nicole Brown Save CommunityThe "Save 'Community'" movement has friends in high places at NBC, according to series star Yvette Nicole Brown.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Brown said an executive -- Edwin Chung, the senior vice president of primetime at NBC -- came to a 'Community' table read wearing his homemade T-shirt two days after NBC announced its plans to shelve the series.

"This is someone who's kind of in the process with us and knows that it's not ideal that we're not on the air," she said.

'Community' Ratings: Did the Social Media Campaigns Work?

CommunityFor four days now, we've found ourselves living in the darkest timeline, following the news that NBC has yet to find a place for 'Community' on their midseason schedule. Though the Peacock insists that the cult comedy will return at some point, fans have taken to social media to register their disapproval of the scheduling snub, starting petitions and defacing their avatars with evil goatees. Even AOL TV's resident 'Community' skeptic, Mo Ryan, is on the "Save Community" bandwagon (read her open letter to NBC here).

But did all of the righteous indignation result in a ratings bump for the perennially on-the-bubble show when it aired another hilarious episode last night?

Kind of ...

Save Greendale! An Open Letter to the Head of NBC Regarding 'Community's' Future

by Maureen Ryan, posted Nov 15th 2011 12:40PM
The news that 'Community' has been benched for an indeterminate amount of time came like a punch in the gut on Monday.

Wait, what? Why am I, of all people, lamenting this very dark timeline for the low-rated NBC comedy? I'm not known to be one of 'Community's' most vociferous advocates.

Because the best part of this job is tapping into people's passions, and when I wrote about how much I loved 'Remedial Chaos Theory,' a wildly inventive and fantastically fun October episode of the show, I got a ton of feedback from 'Community' fans who were excited to share lists of their favorite episodes of the show.

Maybe 'Community' hasn't been my cup of tea every single week, but I absolutely love how much people adore it, and in a perfect world, the TV landscape offers range of shows that a wide variety of people wholeheartedly love, whatever those show's occasional wobbles.

That's why we need a Save Greendale campaign, which should not only involve felt beards but also letters to NBC (and if you have further ideas on how to save the show, please share them below). Here's my open letter to Robert Greenblatt, the chairman of NBC Entertainment:
