Jeez, you guys look like you're going to a funeral or something.

Calm down, Community fans: NBC head honcho Bob Greenblatt pinky swears that Dan Harmon's beloved series isn't dead and will be back sometime this year -- and most likely in a different timeslot -- for the second half of its third season. "I want to expel any notion that it is just disappearing off the schedule," he told the press at TCA. You know how you can really expel that notion? Announce a return date already.

Hot on the heels of Jeremy Renner's barroom brawl in Thailand, Deadliest Catch star Feleti "Freddy" Maugatai was arrested after allegedly putting a guy in a headlock in the bathroom of Alaska's Grand Aleutian hotel. Looks like we just need one more brawl-related news story to make this a genuine pop-culture trend! Ball's in your court, Zac Efron.

After hinting that he might be done with 30 Rock, Alec Baldwin has opted to re-up his contract for another year, even though the show itself hasn't officially been renewed for Season 7. But with Baldwin already in place, another season seems like a foregone conclusion. Unless, of course, this year stinks as much as the last one did.

Zooey Deschanel may excel at playing adorkable ditzes on TV and film, but in real life she's apparently quite savvy when it comes to finances. Court documents reveal that the New Girl star, who is in the process of divorcing husband Ben Gibbard, makes sure to carry a zero balance on her credit cards and keeps her expenses well below her $95K/month salary. Her co-stars might want to use her as their accountant come tax time.

Finally, we doff our Batman baseball caps and raise our hands in a Vulcan Salute to mark the passing of Richard Alf, one of the co-founders of the annual Nerd Prom known as the San Diego Comic-Con. Alf helped organize the first-ever Con way back in 1970 and watched it grow over the decades into the pop-culture behemoth it is today. He passed away Wednesday of pancreatic cancer at age 59.
