community season 4 fall 2012 nbc 'Community' and 'Whitney' not premiering on Oct. 19 anymoreHuman Beings, which timeline is this? NBC has decided not to debut “Community” Season 4 on Friday, Oct. 19 after all — and “Whitney” Season 2 won’t premiere then either. Why? Well, don’t completely freak out — this could be a good thing.

Citing a need to give “Community” and fellow new Friday night comedy “Whitney” more promotional support, NBC will not air them on the 19th as planned, confirms Vulture.

This could mean exactly what NBC says it means — that the network wants more time to promote the veteran sitcoms before they air in their new Friday time slots — or it could mean that NBC realized it’s totally Britta’d its Wednesday and Thursday comedy lineups and will bring both shows to different nights to take the place of struggling shows.

New comedies “Animal Practice” and “Guys With Kids” haven’t been performing very well, so don’t be completely shocked if they get replaced.

What do you think of the scheduling move? Were you ready to watch “Community” on Fridays? Are you hoping it moves back to its rightful Thursday time slot?
