It's now been well reported across the interwebs that Chevy Chase is departing the cast of Community after all but two of the thirteen episodes for this (its fourth) season have already been produced.

We at TV by the Numbers love Gawker and while the headline for this post was Robert's imagining of how they might do it, it was my pleasure to pull the trigger.

Community returns to NBC's schedule on February 7.

    Best headline ever!

  • LesinTucson

    Great headline!

  • Michael

    You realize you just angered all of Reddit, right? I hope you’re okay with being an internet pariah.

  • TV Gord

    I love Community and I treasure every episode. Great, great show. And in that spirit, anyone who has a Community sense of humor should probably have cackled as hard as I did at that headline! Best ever!!!

  • Kavyn

    Haha, mean but fair title. I’m with Gord on this one ;)

  • SVU: Fringe Division

    I guess that’s why they filmed episode 13 before episodes 11 and 12.

  • DW

    i like both chase and community but thats a funny headline.

  • Adam

    Who would have guessed he could end Community and his acting career in 1 day.

    Hey, these Gawker headlines are fun!

  • Acey

    Saw this headline come up on Twitter right below a post by The Onion… thought it was some kind of glitch.

    Too funny! I admit that I don’t watch Community, and I don’t care about Chevy Chase. However, I’ve heard lots of good things about the show and will probably catch up with it someday.

    I’m not sure how I feel about this yet. We all know that I love Community – all the people who found amusement from my Last Resort rantings should read what I’ve written in defense of Community. They’re appparently a hoot (I don’t remember because my blood rage took me over completely in those instances). But it’s been so long since the last new ep – I’ve lost touch to a much greater extent than I thought.

    You know, Bill, there’s a theory still going around that Chevy’s portrayal on SNL of then-President Gerald Ford as stumbling oaf cost the latter the 1976 Presidental election. Chase was that popular at the time. So, Mr. Smooth, thanks for going all Don Rickles on him.

  • NBC is awesome


  • PJM

    Chevy leaves the show 2 episodes before it will end anyway. Yeah, way to strike a chord for artistic integrity there, Chevy! So, when is production for Zoom 2 or Not Another Not Another Not Another Movies starting up?

  • DaxJackson

    Love Community, but headline is so true… wish the latter part wasn’t true though.

  • BOTR

    @Michael: I have a feeling he won’t care if he makes a bunch of internet nerds angry.

  • Carrie


  • Matt H.

    Most asinine headline ever.

  • ManiacalZebra

    Poster who doesn’t watch the show or care about the actor wonders why the website bothered to write the article, much less post it.
