Started in February of 2006 as an outlet for Daniel Malen (The TV Addict) to share his love of television with anyone who would listen, has quietly grown into one of the Internet’s premiere destinations for television news, interviews and opinion.

In a move that has no doubt set your Twitter feed afire, NBC has just announced a much-anticipated return date for COMMUNITY. Or, as creator Dan Harmon more eloquently tweeted, “What you call 8:00, we call home. COMMUNITY returns to Thursday nights on March 15th.”

Making room for your favorite student body will be 30 ROCK, which NBC will push to 8:30PM in addition to sending PARKS AND RECREATION packing to Thursday April 19th at 9:30PM, where it will return in the not-nearly-as-plum-as-it-used-to-be-post-OFFICE timeslot following UP ALL NIGHT’s season finale.

In other Peacock Programming news, Wednesday night is getting an “Extreme Makeover: Scheduling Edition” thanks to the arrival of BENT, a delightful new single cam rom-com centering around a recently divorced Alex (Amanda Peet) and her charismatic contractor Pete (David Walton) that will bow with back-to-back episodes on March 21st at 9PM. Also joining the NBC family on Wednesday’s following the season (series?) finales of WHITNEY and ARE YOU THERE, CHELSEA on April 4th will be the premieres of BETTY WHITE’S OFF THEIR ROCKERS and BEST FRIENDS FOREVER. The latter of which features Jessica St. Clair and Lennon Parham playing old friends who reunite after the divorce of St. Clair’s character.
