As commenter Tom suggested, it turns out this was just a bad listings release. NBC has updated it to remove Community and Whitney whose premieres are still TBD.

Whitney and Community were originally scheduled to debut on October 19.  Then NBC said it was holding back on that because it said it wanted to focus its promotion on its new Monday-Wednesday shows. This led some folks to wonder if NBC wasn't just holding the sitcoms back to ultimately pinch hit for struggling performers like Animal Practice.

A repeat of Grimm is now scheduled on October 19 at 8pm, and the burn off of the Mockingbird Lane pilot is scheduled for October 26. But the latest NBC schedule update has episodes of Whitney & Community airing on Friday, November 2.

That's still a few weeks away, and who knows how many times it will change before then but here's are the current listing blurbs for Friday, November 2:

WHITNEY"

"TBA"

11/02/2012 (08:00PM - 08:30PM) (Friday) :

"COMMUNITY"

"TBA"

11/02/2012 (08:30PM - 09:00PM) (Friday) :

"Grimm"

"THE HOUR OF DEATH"

11/02/2012 (09:00PM - 10:00PM) (Friday) : A SERIAL KILLER DESCENDS ON PORTLAND AND THE WESEN COMMUNITY IS IN GRAVE DANGER -- When a brutal vigilante homicide is made public, it sends Portland’s Wesen community into a frenzy. As Nick (David Giuntoli) investigates further, he discovers a pattern similar to that of a particularly brutal line of past Grimms. Is there another Grimm in town, or is Nick dealing with a sadistic copycat? Meanwhile, Captain Renard (Sasha Roiz) takes it upon himself to offer Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) comfort in handling her ongoing dilemma with Nick. Russell Hornsby, Silas Weir Mitchell and Reggie Lee.

    Why? Clearly NBC is confused. There’s no way Animal Practice should be airing during November sweeps.

    Put AP and UAN on hiatus or on fridays and pair Whitney and Guys With Kids (please NBC dont let this one shrink away behind AP, its actually a good show) together and put Community on Thursdays. It’s not hard NBC

  • John A

    NBC should switch 30 Rock and UAN with Community and Whitney. Probably be no difference in ratings but they should try.

  • NBC is awesome

    what anise birthday gift!, to bad I won’t be home to watch them! URGG!

  • Tom

    This just sounds like a PR snafu. Why delay them indefinitely just to put them out two weeks later, and then not know which episodes are airing?

    Far more likely they just didn’t update the listings with Grimm repeats (or whatever).

    @Tom: indeed. If I had to bet whether that’ll be the schedule on November 2, I’d certainly bet against it.

    Old data placeholder? That’s what the lack of episode information suggests.

  • marcos

  • RyanCanada

    I love Whitney and I don’t care where they put it but I just wanna watch it and I hope it’s renewed

  • Cardinals & Joe Buck ruin baseball

    Makes no sense since they have to go against the Friday comedies now on ABC.
