'Community' gets a premiere date (for real) and returns to Thursday nights
NBC says the cult-favorite comedy, which had initially been scheduled for an Oct. 19 premiere but then was pushed back, will debut on Feb. 7, 2013. It will return to its home at 8 p.m. ET Thursdays, taking over the spot that will be vacated when "30 Rock" ends.
Cast member Yvette Nicole Brown broke the news via Twitter on Tuesday (Oct. 30), and a network rep confirmed the date to Zap2it.
The show's midseason berth could create the somewhat odd sight of Jeff Winger ( Joel McHale) and Co. celebrating Halloween closer to Valentine's Day and Christmas sometime in March, but "Community" fans shouldn't be too upset about that.
