NBC recently changed its plans for May 17.
Episodes 1.12 & 1.13 of Awake were supposed to air that night, but given the abysmal ratings of the drama series (0.8% of the 18-49 demo last Thursday after Parks and Rec (1.6%)... and Awake doesn't have to face TBBT, Grey's Anatomy or American Idol (some other NBC shows do), it's up against Scandal and The Mentalist), episode 1.12 will air on May 17 at 10pm (instead of 9pm) and episode 1.13 will air on May 24 at 10pm (instead of the previous week).
Community is benefiting from that change, meaning that instead of airing on May 24, episodes 3.21 and 3.22 will air on May 17, during the sweeps ratings period. Three brand new episodes of Community, 65 minutes of creative and hilarious awesomeness, will air from 8pm to 10pm, only interrupted by the season 6 finale of 30 Rock at 8:30pm.
And thus Community will finish its Junior Year on Thursday, May 17. The NBC Upfronts are on Monday, May 14, but I trust NBC will have announced the renewal of Community for a full Senior Year before that.
Thursday, May 17 :
8:00pm : Community — episode 3.20 (The First Chang Dynasty).
8:30pm : 30 Rock — episode 6.22 (No title yet — season finale).
9:00pm : Community — episode 3.21 (Introduction to Finality).
9:30pm : Community — episode 3.22 (Digital Estate Planning — season finale).
10:00pm : Awake — episode 1.12 (Two Birds).
Awake's season finale (I'm afraid there's not much chance episode 1.13 isn't the series finale as well) entitled "Turtles All the Way Down" will air on Thursday, May 24, at 10/9c.
