Synopsis:

THE GREENDALE STUDY GROUP RETURNS FROM SUMMER BREAK FOR THEIR FOURTH YEAR - The Study Group returns from summer break ready to tackle their fourth year of Community College. Jeff (Joel McHale) is particularly focused on graduating and is just a few credits away. When there is a mix-up with a history class registration, Dean Pelton (Jim Rash) institutes an elaborate physical competition for class space. Meanwhile, Britta (Gillian Jacobs) helps Abed (Danny Pudi) deal with the anxiety he is experiencing over the thought of the study group graduating and breaking up. Chevy Chase, Alison Brie, Yvette Nicole Brown, Donald Glover and Ken Jeong also star.

Well, I guess this is the most anticipated show of 2013 on this board. Might as well start this now.

13 episodes ordered. They wrapped production in December.

Smart NBC, keep the nerdiest show on TV going against the biggest show about nerds on TV.

I wish this show all the luck in the world, it's still one of my favorites.

Don't think I voted completely done with it, but wasn't thrilled at the time. I'm pretty happy now though.

I'm so down.

I'm sure this will rate higher than Parks and 1600 Penn (and likely all of NBCs new Comedies as well).

It won't beat Parks and Rec which pulls between a 1.7 and 1.9 demo, but it should have no problem beating 1600 Penn, Up All Night, Whitney and Guys with Kids.

To think NBC cancelled a show getting above a 2.0 demo rating a couple seasons ago (Outsourced).

The last new episode of Whitney drew a 1.3 demo, 3.64m viewers. Guys with Kids drew 1.1 demo, 2.93m viewers. Series finale of 30 Rock pulled a 1.9 demo, 4.80m viewers (highest ratings in a year). Office had a 2.1 (9:00) and 1.9 (9:30), 1600 Penn pulled a 1.3 (3.28m viewers).

Community has to go against American Idol and TBBT, the two most popular shows on TV. Stupid NBC

The last 2 weeks have been the exception for P&R.

I still expect (hope) for a 1.5/1.7. After Smash getting a 1.2 the other day, I want to see this succeed.

Early reviews have not been kind.

I was worried when Harmon was fired, but I'm still totally stoked to tune in. Cannot wait to watch it tonight!

I see no way they bring this show back, but I've always been about getting what Community I can get (even if it turns out to suck -- we'll see).

NBC has made some seriously bad calls in what to renew and cancel in the past couple of decades. For instance, Outsourced was a really decent show by the end of the season and pulled in decent numbers.

yeah I'm going to keep watching, but was not a fan of that... it was trying too hard to be Community.

Lots of episodes from season 3 can be considered to be "trying too hard to be Community."

Yeah, it did strike me as trying too hard.

But I'll watch all the way to the end. After all, I'm sticking with The Office and that show has been awful for awhile now. Can't imagine Community could end up that bad.

I'm....not sure what the hell I watched tonight...but it wasn't the show I love so much. Watching the rest with fingers crossed.

I'll happily watch until the end, but this was not good. I'd be lying if I said I didn't laugh a few times, but it just didn't feel right at all. It looked like Community, it sounded like Community, but...

the 'Big Bang' riff was hilarious and far funnier - and I hate Big Bang Theory
