College is not for everyone.
Chevy Chase is being expelled (or dropping out, whichever you would prefer). The comedian is leaving NBC's Community - a move that has seemed to be the only outcome of his irritation towards the show for quite some time.
Chase played Pierce Hawthorne for three seasons on the comedy and for most of the fourth season, which has been filmed but not aired yet. At this time, only a few episodes of the fourth season are to be filmed still. It is not known how his departure will be handled.
The tipping point may have been is use of the "N" word in October on set, a move that he "immediately" apologized for. There comes a point where enough is enough, though. (EDIT: read about that here. He was using it to criticize his character's racism. He still said it, however, around black cast members.)
Chase and show creator Dan Harmon went head-to-head, with a nasty voicemail from Chase being leaked to the internet last spring.
The critically acclaimed but lightly viewed series has had a rocky year. It was renewed in May, after appearing to be on the chopping block. It was scheduled for Friday's on NBC, but was pulled to promote it more. Have you seen a lot of promotion? Now the series is scheduled to come back to Thursdays, at 8 p.m. in February.
