NBC's 'Community': The next '30 Rock'? - Featured

NBC has posted a bunch of new clips of its new comedy Community (premiering Sept. 17), starring Joel McHale, Chevy Chase, and that guy who is in every funny movie you've seen over the past three years (aka Ken Jeong). The show follows a group of misfits, including a dis-barred lawyer (McHale) and a dippy retiree (Chase) who end up as classmates at a community college.

Judging by these teasers (and the full pilot, posted on Facebook) it's got the same self-aware, whip-smart vibe that turned 30 Rock into an Emmy magnet-not to mention one of my favorite shows ever. Take a look at this clip below of Chang (Jeong) teaching a Spanish class, and then let us know: Is Community going to be the comedy to beat this fall?

i have seen the pilot for community which was in short great the humor and delivery where reminiscent of the office jon oliver from the daily show makes a wonderful debut in his first series playing the dean of the community college hes hilarious the lead joel mchale shows a lot of promise along with the other members of the cast however one slight criticism is the third act where i felt the payoff for the start of this episode was too quick
