A business case for not canceling Community

Megan Angelo makes a convincing (in my opinion) case for why it makes no business sense to cancel Community:

2) There’s nothing like it on television. We mean this objectively.

Notice how “The Office” spawned tons of docu-style comedies and “Mad Men” rushed a bunch of 1960s dramas into development? “Community” has been around since 2009, and we’ve yet to see a knockoff — because it’s not so easy to copy high-concept, knife-sharp sitcoms that handle Claymation and live-action paintball with equal skill.

The show isn’t broad — and the ratings reflect that. But if NBC isn’t going to hang with their bizarre-but-brilliant hits, they shouldn’t waste their cash ordering projects from people like Sarah Silverman.
