How "Community" might be in danger of Cancellation

Since Fox cancelled Joss Whedon’s Firefly and Dollhouse, there hasn’t been a network that comes close to making me as nervous that they will cancel a great series, or until now.  NBC announced that they will be putting the Thursday Night sitcom on the backburner for the midseason.  The network claims that the show is just taking a break and that it is not being cancelled but why else are they benching the show?

Community is comedy at its best.  They have done parodies of iconic films, tv shows and even themselves.  Last year they went as far as to parody the classic claymated winter classics as well as the popular targets of Breakfast Club and Star Wars.   The writing is unique, the cast is amazing and the pop culture references, parodies and themed episodes will keep anyone who watches coming back for more.

While Community is being pushed aside, new shows Whitney and Are you there, Chelsea? are on Wednesday night’s timeslot at the midseason start.  Is NBC seeing something that I am definitely missing with this move?
