“Community” News From Channel 2

By , March 19, 2010

Channel 2 preempted an original episode of the NBC comedy “Community” yesterday to carry a special that is important to the Western New York community.

The station ran a special on prostate cancer that is sponsored by Roswell Park. However, it plans to run “Community” at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

Jim Toellner, Channel 2′s general manager, said the station made the decision to run the special tonight when NBC had planned to run a repeat of “Community.” The network changed its mind and decided to run an original episode. The move hasn’t prompted community outrage, but Toellner said the NBC affiliate has received some calls from fans of “Community.” One of the stars of the series, Ken Jeong, even called Channel 2′s programming department after he got a tweet from a fan about the station’s plans.

“It will be interesting to see if ‘Community’ does a better rating on Saturday because of the controversy,” said Toellner.

Former New Orleanian Ken Jeong is getting laughs on ‘Community’

By , March 3, 2010

Nola has an interview with ‘Community’ star, Ken Jeong. Here are some of the highlights:
“My dad was a professor for 35 years, ” said Jeong of D.K. Jeong, an economics professor now retired from the faculty of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University in Greensboro. “I took a class with him in college — just audited it. Watching him teach was like watching him work a room, like Don Rickles.
“He’s clearly where I got my comedy. It amazed me how deeply similar teaching is to performing. When you teach a class, you’ve known the curriculum for years, and you develop a style, the way you present information. You want to develop it in an entertaining way so it sticks with the students. It’s really just like a stand-up comic working an act over and over again, years and years of work until it’s the tightest joke possible.
“My dad definitely had his act honed, after 30 years. It was amazing to see how smooth he was. It was really professional. There was no dead air, really tight. I think about it all the time when I’m doing my character.”
Jeong’s own fish-out-of-water background as a joke-telling physician also plays into Chang’s personality.
“A guy who is Asian who is teaching Spanish, a guy who has a chip on his shoulder — it’s not unlike me being a doctor, ” Jeong said. “Why comedy? Why acting? Why Spanish? Why me?”

“I was able to see the pilot months before it was televised, ” Jeong said. “Once I read my part of Senor Chang, I just laughed out loud and said, ‘I’ve got to do this. I will not get an opportunity to do this again.’
“I get to go to work every day and just kind of muck around with people like Joel McHale and Chevy Chase. Our chemistry and our friendships have gotten deeper both off camera and on camera.”
Though a critical success, “Community” isn’t a sure thing for a second season. It’s drawing larger average audiences than comedy-night companion “Parks & Recreation, ” which has been renewed for 2010-11, and NBC’s lineup isn’t exactly spilling excess quality at the moment, but you never know. An average of 5.4 million viewers each week puts it on the bubble.
Jeong isn’t hurting for fall-back opportunities. But losing Senor Chang would be a blow. “It’s the best day job ever, ” Jeong said. “It really is.”

NBC series is striving to join the community of hit sitcoms

By , March 2, 2010

At the start of the 2009-2010 fall season, critics were rooting the hardest for “Modern Family,” “Glee” and “Community.” At the halfway mark, two of those early favorites have shot ahead of the pack, while the squad from Greendale Community College is still trying to catch its breath.

The debut of the NBC sitcom attracted 7.7 million viewers, but since then it has averaged 5.4 million, enough to get a full-season pickup on a struggling network, but not enough to qualify it as a hit or guarantee a second season.

“We’re No. 1 among Asian pervs,” said actor Ken Jeong, who, like the rest of the cast assembled on set this January afternoon is more interested in cracking jokes than analyzing why their sitcom is off to a slow start.

There’s every reason to believe that with some patience and promotion, the sitcom will develop into a fan favorite.

“I’m really proud of the show we’re doing,” said Yvette Nicole Brown, who portrays the gang’s den mother. “I feel like the people who were meant to find the show will find the show, and I’m glad NBC has given us a full year to find that out.”

Is ‘Community’s Annie Ready To Loosen Up?

By , February 4, 2010

Fancast visited Community, and here is the highlight from their visit:

It was comedic chaos when Fancast visited the set of NBC’s ‘Community‘ (Thursdays at 8/7c).

Things started out innocently enough with Ken Jeong dressing down Chevy Chase – or, technically, the veteran actor’s alter ego – as an “Old Navy hipster doofus,” but then they swiftly spiraled out of control thereafter.

“I play 18 on the show, but I think some of the writers forget that I have a nice rack!” laughs Brie, who braves a bikini (and less) in this month’s issue of Complex. Referring to Annie and Jeff’s flirtation, she says, “The fan feedback was crazy. There are even YouTube videos about them” – more often than not forwarded to the actress by the taunting and Internet-savvy Jeong.

Brie says that while such viral mash-ups are “flattering and I appreciate that people are making them, it’s funny to see [Annie and Jeff] cast in a totally different light.” Whether the study buddies’ spark is reignited in future episodes, she says, remains to be seen.
