Yesterday, NBC pulled an installment of their return “hit,” the Joe Rogan hosted, “Fear Factor” that featured contestants in a donkey-semen-drinking competition, the winner of which received $50,000 (to be taxed approximately 60%). The network mysteriously pulled the entire episode off the schedule and aired a re-run last night instead, with no reason as to given, and no comment provided when asked. I don’t really care about any of this, because people who watch “Fear Factor” can probably hold their animal splooge with the best of them.
I just wanted this to serve as your friendly reminder that “Community” is still not on the primetime schedule, but Hulu has every single episode available for Plus members. They also have a slew of clips that everyone (well, everyone who can watch Hulu) can enjoy, and I’m pimping them out because they very clearly value the show and its audience — not that they need my help. What follows are the All-Time Top 10 “Community” Clips On Hulu (as ranked by viewings). And feel free to share your favorite “Community” moments in the comments.

No news, yet, on the return date for “Community” but the NBC website has “Returning Soon” all over the show’s homepage, so they know people are out there watching. “Whitney” and “Are You There, Chelsea” can’t fail fast enough, with all due condolences to Laura Prepon.
Rob Payne also writes the indie comic The Unstoppable Force, tweets on the Twitter @RobOfWar, and his ware can be purchased here (if you’re into that sort of thing). He’s proud he held off doing a “Community” post this long into the new year.
