For reasons that don't make an awful lot of sense, many people remain concerned about the fate of "Friends"cast members who are not Jennifer Aniston. We applaud the comedic elasticity of Lisa Kudrow, pulled for Courteney Cox to overcome the initial premise of "Cougar Town," cheer when Matt LeBlanc parodies himself on"Episodes" and wonder whatever happened to David Schwimmer.

The news keeps getting stranger and stranger for "Community. " The NBC sitcom has bounced back from a near-death experience a year ago and will return for Season 5 next year. The network confirmed late Friday that it will pick up the eccentric comedy for another go-round, on a day when a batch of other shows, including the Matthew Perry vehicle "Go On," learned they were not making the cut. The perennially low-rated "Community" was considered at death's door last year, when show runner Dan Harmon was ushered to the door.
