They actually did that in both the third and fourth seasons but I do agree that the story felt a bit off after each of the original intended season finales.
This is what bothers me about short ordering the 4th season of Community. They are either going to leave the order the same and we are going to get a short season of a 30 minute show...or they are going to up the order after the first couple of episodes which will cause the creative team to have to scramble to come up with another half of a season. NBC should have just given Community a full season order and then put some money behind advertising. The casual fan won't automatically know that Community is going to be moving to Friday nights.
