It’s Thursday night and it feels a little empty without NBC’s Community. However, that might soon change. It is starting to look like the show might be pulled from the brink of cancellation and be renewed for a sixth season. The show’s star, Joel McHale, recently hosted the White House Correspondents Dinner. McHale has also been rumored to be in the running to replace Craig Ferguson.
Joel McHale roasted the most powerful man in the world this past weekend at the White House Correspondents Dinner. The Washington Post has compiled a list of all of McHale’s jokes, including these doozies aimed at the Affordable Care Act:
“I haven’t seen [Jay Carney] this nervous since the president said to him, ‘Look, just go out there and tell them the Web site is broken. They’ll understand.’”
“Ugh I shouldn’t have eaten that sushi, I was up all night healthcare.gov-ing.”
“Now, over 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, which is impressive, until you realize that Ashley Tisdale has 12 million Twitter followers.”
Much like everything else in the world of politics, the reaction to McHale’s performance received mixed reviews.
McHale has been rumored to replace CBS’ Craig Ferguson, when he steps down from the Late Late Show. However, the Soup host is not sure that legal take the job, telling Howard Stern,:
“No one’s called. I don’t think I could even do it with Community. I’m under contract. I don’t think legally I could.”
McHale also went on to say a lot of good things about Furgerson, adding:
“I thought he was so damn good at it. He makes gobs of money, he doesn’t have to do anything anymore. His stand-up [career] is huge. He’s world famous when it comes to his stand-up. He makes way more money than that than it does with his late-night show.”
Zap2it’s TV By The Numbers column is now reporting that Community will likely be renewed for a sixth season.
