* Community (3.9 mil/1.7) was down 18 and 23 percent, yet emerged as NBC’s most watched and top-rated comedy for the night.

Eek. 1.7 is pretty much the lowest safe number, isn't it? I hope it can keep that up when stupid BBT comes back, but I know that probably won't happen. Too much audience overlap.

I've never really understand how the share part of the ratings work. The number of viewers is the only number that makes any sense to me.

In last night's show, who were the four fake celebrities who walked out of Abed, Troy and Annie's apartment? Woody Allen, Jake LaMotta? Pretty Woman? Tom Cruise. Is that right?

The Subway plot line was near-perfect. This show just keeps getting better.

I think Gillian Jacobs is great but if you told me that Britta would be this season's MVP character, I would have thought you were insane. The writers managed to 'fix' Britta from being problematic to a joke to poke fun at to a character who finally hit stride. Jacobs' acting throughout the whole Subway plot was fantastic. Britta FTW!

Strangely, I thought last nights episode was a little lacking. Dunno why...

Since it is the first of a two-parter, I think the pay-off will be next week. Annie and Jeff seemed irresolute and obviously the Troy-Abed drama.

It wasn't a fantastic episode (except for the amazing Subway storyline), but we'll see if the second part makes it all pay off.

Is Subway the patron saint of NBC bubble shows or what?

So they DO really have a tie-in with Subway? I wasn't sure if it was all a joke or not! Subway kept Chuck afloat, so may they do the same for Community!

On a side note, my friend gave me a Greendale Community College hoodie the other day that I will never take off.

And I now judge people on the street by their reaction to it.

**goes to look at it in the NBC Store**

I have to admit, I'm a little disappointed it has some other logo instead of E Pluribus Anus. But the price is really reasonable...hm...

Nah, I think what I really want out of life is a Human Being plushie.

Maybe this season is still in the darkest timeline for Pierce Hawthorne?

If Chase does decide to leave, I think he should go. I don't particularly like his character, but I think he's funny and I think he's a pretty good antagonist. I guess Dan Harmon wanted to go darker with him after Dungeons and Dragons but the fansphere freaked? Something like that.

At any rate, it's a shame Chase doesn't get the show. He's certainly not alone, but I always thought he was good for a laugh on it.

They should recast Pierce if he leaves. It's perfectly within the world of this show for something like that to happen.

At any rate, I'm glad the buzz on a fourth season is happening, and I don't care if there's a Pierce or not.

Luckily for the show, they could just recast the role or act like he was never there to begin with, with probably only Abed knowing differently.

I'll tell you the truth though, I know people here and elsewhere "got" the whole Dungeons and Dragons thing with Pierce, but it really turned me off to the character in a way that he's never really recovered (for me at least). Of all the characters he's really the one who I think provides the least, especially now with Dean Pelton and Chang and a few of the others having bigger parts than they did before.

I really wouldn't miss him if he were to leave.

I just never know what to think about Chang. He works in small doses, although I think my favorite Chang episode was the one with the model UN, where he had a pretty significant role. Dean Pelton, though, is always a delight.

Leonard for study group geriatric.

The only Pierce-driven episode I liked was the cinema verite styled episode where he was bequeffing everybody at the hospital, but I put that squarely on LeVar Burton playing himself and Donald Glover's crying.

I think Chase has done excellent work on the show - even when I hated Pierce completely, I pretty much always thought he was well-acted - but I'm...not surprised the his character's outsider status is reflected in real life. By all accounts Dan Harmon has been a dick to him, too, so it's all a mess.

Brilliant episode. My issue with Chase's character--the politics aside (and I think he has a point)--are he really works best as a B character.
