Two Years, Two Months, Six Seasons And A Movie

I haven't watched NBC since Conan's final Tonight Show back in January 2010, as that moment was the straw that broke the camel's back.

There were many things which the network had done in the past which had gained my emnity, one of which was cancelling Last Comic Standing right before they were going to show the finale.

And I've been rather resolute about this whole thing. But now, I think I have to break it because even though my viewership doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things, I am going to finally start watching Community.

I've let a funny show pass me by because of a principle, one which wasn't even hurting NBC in any way.

I still watch Conan, but basically boycotting a network for 2 years has to be a reasonable amount of effort. I can afford to watch one show on NBC now, can't I? Especially if this upcoming bunch of episodes may be the last for Community.

Is principle really worth not seeing something I would enjoy after all this time?

Yeah, I have to watch this batch of episodes too. The show is really funny for anyone interested in pop culture.

If you had to choose one show to break your fast I am glad you choose this one. It's really a great ensemble goofy piece of funny television - laugh out loud funny.

That being said, Leno has a special room for himself in Hell.

I don't believe I've watched NBC since the whole Conan debacle. And I"m ashamed to say I haven't watched much of Conan since he went to TBS or whatever channel he's on, primarily because I keep forgetting the # of the channel and I don't watch all that much t.v.

On an upnote, if you have a netflix subscription, you can catch shows such as Parks & Recreation etc without sitting thru commercials etc.
