Chevy Chase is gone and Community creator Dan Harmon is back. Will some of the viewers return as well? Will the show be renewed for a sixth season (and a movie) or will it be cancelled instead? We shall see.
Community follows a suspended lawyer (Joel McHale) and other students at the Greendale Community College in Colorado. The rest of the cast includes Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Ken Jeong, Jim Rash, Jonathan Banks, and John Oliver.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.
