Dan Harmon to Post-Cancellation 'Community' Fans: "Sit Back and Relax for This Chapter"

Community creator Dan Harmon took to Tumblr this morning to reach out to fans in the wake of NBC's cancellation of the show last week to both address rumors about the show possibly being shopped around to other networks and whether or not he wants fans to start another uproar for its resurrection. While Harmon is clearly bummed that Community was given the axe, he says his thoughts on the idea of shopping the show around are in the "eh column," but at the same time he's "not going to be the guy that recancels canceled Community."

New Documentary, Real-Life Cheesy Poofs Commemorate 15 Years of South Park

Having started with the South Park art exhibit in New York this past March, South Park's Year of the Fan continues to give the people what they want for the show's 15th season, including a phantasmagorical South Park Fan Experience at San Diego's Comic-Con, and a South Park documentary to be released this fall, about which the press release says, "A documentary crew was given an all-access pass to Stone and Parker's world at South Park Studios in Los Angeles."

For example, this past weekend, the Twitter addictions of Jake Fogelnest and Questlove helped two Strokes fans survive 55 hours in the freezing cold. Mental survive counts; one would argue it's the most important survival of all.

During the wait, I befriended the suited guy in front of me, who said he’d recently moved to New York from Atlanta.
