How come nobody seems to watch this in the UK?

    I live in England and have been watching online for a few weeks until I discovered the rather obscure channel. Turns out nobody I know has even heard of this but they lap up crap like two and a half men. Does anyone live in the UK and watch this show? Might just be my social group..

    Not many people watch it in the US either, at least based on the Nielson Ratings System. I knew it existed,and heard good things, but never wanted to get into it because it it's on NBC and they love to cancel low rated shows, so it's a miracle that Community's about to be in Season 4. But yeah, a lot of my friends laugh at it too but had never heard of it before.

    Community is my cup of tea, but hell, parts of this show goes over my head. I don't get all the references but I still appreciate the effort. The reason why it's not popular here in the US, is because it's on a bad network, it's very unique, it has limited appeal & it's not dumbed down to the common denominator - you either like it or you don't. It will never be an American Idol or Two & A Half Men, which is garbage. A cult favorite.

    I'm annoyed it took this long for me to see this show!! I caught it the other night randomly and proceeded to watch the rest (I've only just finished now) - I get really annoyed when expertly acted, written and well aimed comedies get sidelined for the idiot proof laugh tracks. Give me this and Arrested Development any day. I like to feel I've earned the right to laugh when they've put SO much effort into making a show. I love all the little things just as much and will have to watch all over again to catch the previous stuff I missed.


    Thank goodness this got another season - here's hoping the episode order increases and onto season six!

    I live in Wales and watch it all the time with an English mate... but yeah, we are a minority. TBBT, on the other hand, is massively popular.
