Jim Says: Joel McHale’s Pecs Taking A Break, What’s Up With Smash and Hunky USA Stars.

28 November 2011 9:27 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Joel McHale and his fabulous pecs may not be on NBC’s midseason schedule

but the net promises all episodes of Community will air.

Why are some shows on all season long but shows like Community, Parenthood and Cougar Town are doing less episodes? – Kim (via Facebook)

While we’ve all gotten hooked on cable series like Dexter, True Blood and The Walking Dead, we’ve also gotten used to less episodes, and the broadcast networks are noticing. The bottom line, though, is (as always) money. Producing fewer episodes means fewer dollars flying out the door and Cougar Town recently seeing it’s season cut back to 15 episodes is a perfect example of that. Don’t get me wrong, though, it’s not only about money. If Parenthood (with 18 episodes this season), Community and Cougar Town were each delivering bigger audiences, they definitely would warrant getting the usual 22-episode season order. »
