Apparently one shouldn't mess with Chevy Chase?

Dan Harmon was fired from the show he created, and they didn't even bother to tell him before telling the press!

OUCH!

Damn.

It appears that show is cursed. Too bad too. Apart from the last few weird episodes it was very well done.

Well, one more season probably.

I expect all of the crew will get other jobs.

I tried to watch the season finale and the episode that preceded it. I hadn't watched the show for awhile.

UN-watchable. So I will give it that maybe you need some continuity to get the characters and there could be inside jokes, but I respect a show much more when you can watch an episode unto itself and still enjoy it. Like Friends. Like Seinfeld. Not like Community.

That does suck how he got the news though. Probably he'll be better off in the end?

Yeah, the last three episodes were really bad.

Dan Harmon was almost as notorious as Chevy for being hard to work with.

I would suspect his ouster had more to do with ratings than with his clashes with Chevy. If you are going to be a colossal douche bag, than you really need pull in better than mediocre ratings.
