likes to jerk us aroundwants us to get excited about the new season of Community, NBC chief Bob Greenblatt has stepped forward and said that the network is "absolutely hopeful" that the show will have a fifth season. "I'd love nothing more than to see it continue," he said. OK, yeah, sure. It would've been nice if you'd shown such faith in the show a wee bit earlier, but I see this statement as nothing more than PR-speak, so whatever. But it's what he said about season four, premiering on February 7th, that I find a bit more interesting. If by interesting you mean infuriating. And I do.

Some surprising news from NBC this weekend: Two weeks after passing on a Wonder Woman show scripted by David E. Kelly because the network couldn't afford the character's licensing fee, the National Broadcasting Company has changed it's mind an given the green light to the Amazonian princess. Apparently two weeks ago, NBC was still going through some internal staff changeups, and didn't have someone who could vouch for a project as big as Wonder Woman. Now that new president Bob Greenblatt is firmly in charge, the network could firmly commit itself. In other news, the show might not be about an Amazon. Or a princess.
