It is getting only weirder for former Community star, Yvette Nicole Brown. She announced her departure due to family reasons, but she now has been promoted as regular cast member of The Odd Couple reboot. Yes, this comes as a surprise as it appears to go against her reasoning for leaving the independent production of Community. The Odd Couple reboot will actually be on CBS, making perhaps a more attractive deal for Yvette in terms of pay. Here was her explaining the shocking move and why it does not take away from her ill father.
(The Odd Couple is) a better fit for the life I have now. My dad needs daily care and he needs me. The idea of being away 16 hours a day for five months, I couldn’t do it. It was a difficult decision for me to make, but I had to choose my dad.

Might Scorpion’s Happy want to consider a name change?
On tonight’s episode of the freshman CBS drama (9/8c), it seems Paige has struck a nerve in the tough tech whiz, and TVLine has an exclusive sneak peek at Happy’s sour mood.

“Are you there, God? It’s me, Alicia.”
Ok, nobody said that on this week’s installment of The Good Wife. But maybe, just maybe, a higher power whispered in the ear of our atheist protagonist Alicia Florrick and convinced her to rethink her stance against declaring her candidacy for State’s Attorney against that rat bastard fink James Castro. Then again, maybe it was just a combination of Good Angel (Gloria Steinem) and Bad Angel (Eli Gold) reminding Saint Alicia that it is, in fact, a woman’s prerogative to change her mind.
Whatever the case, Alicia’s last-act »
“Here’s a guy who’s got his own thing going, and he’s completely supportive and unintimidated by his wife being in a position of power,” Daly tells TVLine. “I think the fact that he’s unintimidated by a woman in power is a great message for men: Guys, it’s Ok. Your girlfriend or your wife can be big, and you can still be confident. »
Yvette Nicole Brown has been promoted to series regular on CBS’ ‘The Odd Couple” remake, a network representative told TheWrap. The upgrade comes just days after the actress departed NBC-turned-Yahoo's “Community” so she could give her sick father daily care.

The actress — whose departure from Community was announced on Tuesday — has been upgraded to a full-fledged series regular on CBS’ upcoming reboot, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Brown joined The Odd Couple in August as the assistant to Matthew Perry’s Oscar, but the gig was initially a recurring one. With her Community exit a done deal, she was free to commit to Odd Couple full-time.
Does Netflix have Eric Cartman’s Awesome-o working in their studios? You remember; he was the lovable robot who could invent Adam Sandler movies out of thin air, like “Adam Sandler falls in love with a Golden Retriever” or “Adam Sandler is stranded on an island and falls in love with a coconut.” If so, that robot has led them to sign a deal with Sandler’s Happy Madison productions to produce and distribute four films, all of which Sandler will star in and produce. Additionally, Netflix will bankroll each of the films, the budget of which on previous Sandler films have averaged roughly $80 million (though where that money goes in the budget is anyone’s guess). This comes days after news that Netflix’s first feature would be the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel.
Sandler commented typically tastefully in a statement via THR, saying, “When these fine people came »

"My dad needs daily care and he needs me," Brown told TVGuide. "The idea of being away sixteen hours a day for five months, I couldn't do it. It was a difficult decision for me to make, but I had to choose my dad."
Harmon and McKenna released a joint statement on the matter, announcing that "Yvette was an integral part of Community and is irreplaceable. We are sad to see her go and wish her the very best."

When cancelled NBC sitcom Community was picked up by Yahoo! Screen in a rather remarkable eleventh-hour resuscitation, loyal fans of the beloved series likely breathed a deep sigh of relief and assumed that, finally, everything was going to be okay for the Greendale gang. Sadly, that’s not the case today, as series regular Yvette Nicole Brown has confirmed that she will not be reprising the role of Shirley Bennett in Community‘s upcoming sixth season.
Brown, who has been with Community since the start, opted to depart the show in order to care for her ailing father. Speaking with TV Guide, which broke news of the exit, she said:
“My dad needs daily care and he needs me. The idea of being away 16 hours a day for five months, I couldn’t do it. It was a difficult decision for me to make, but I had to choose my dad. »

It’s become a tradition with Community; the happy is paired with the sad. Last season, fans were gifted with the shocking return of series creator and seasons 1-3 showrunner Dan Harmon before they found out that Donald Glover would leave the show after a handful of episodes. Without Glover’s Troy Barnes, the show soldiered on with the help of new and returning cast additions like Jonathan Banks and John Oliver, but the loss was felt on the screen with the absence of the comedic force that was the Troy and Abed team-up.
This season, which might qualify as an actual miracle, exists because Yahoo Screen came in at the 11th hour to save the cancelled sitcom and check off half ...

This will make her the third Community vet not returning for the new season in addition to Donald Glover and Chevy Chase. So why did Brown ask to be released from her contract? Because she's a great daughter. "My dad needs daily care and he »

The split from the show was amicable as executive producers Dan Harmon and Chris McKenna said in a joint statement, “Yvette was an integral part of Community and is irreplaceable. We are sad to see her go and wish her the very best.” More after the jump. While Brown will be leaving Community, TV Guide notes that she will remain onboard the new CBS sitcom The Odd Couple with Matthew Perry. That show is a multi-cam format, which is much more agreeable schedule-wise, and Sony has »

Fans of the cult classic Community will not see Yvette Nicole Brown’s Shirley returning. This news came after a few months ago the show was picked up last minute by Yahoo Screen. However, that is not the reason why she is not returning for the 6th season. She reportedly asked to be let go from her contract to take care of her father. She called the choice tough, but chose family over long work hours as he grows older with more need for daily care. Here was her official statement to TV Guide about her departure from the show.
My dad needs daily care and he needs me….The idea of being away 16 hours a day for five months, I couldn’t do it. It was a difficult decision for me to make, but I had to choose my dad.
Yvette will be missed, but we applaud her for making a tough choice. »
