<i>New Girl</i>: The Do’s and Don’ts of Catfishing Schmidt as Michael Keaton

Well, that was a pretty bizarre episode of New Girl, even by the standards of the already pretty bizarre Season 3. (Wait, this is what they did with their Halloween episode? It comes but once a year, you guys!).

<i>Parks and Recreation</i>: Where to Watch the Cast During the Show’s Hiatus

Dammit, Jerry/Gerry/Garry/Larry! Don't ask us how it's his fault that NBC is putting Parks and Recreation more or less on hiatus until January 2014, but he is, we just know it. Sadly, that news is true: due to some infuriating schedule switcheroos, we won't get the new Halloween episode of Parks and Rec until November 14 so it can be preempted for episodes of The Voice and an SNL special. After back-to-back episodes on November 14 and 21, there will be a break and we won't see Leslie Knope and Co. again until January 9, 2014. While Adam Scott assured fans nothing fishy is going on, it was heartbreaking enough when we had to deal with the uncertain future of Parks and Rec, but now that we have it back, we can't actually have it? And, nice try, but none of this will get any of us to watch Sean Saves the World because, you know, we have eyes.

New York Comic Con 2013: <i>Beauty and the Beast</i> and <i>Reign</i> Stars Talk Love and History

The ridiculously attractive stars and the creators of The CW's Beauty and the Beast and Reign met the press at this past weekend's New York Comic Con and here's some of what they had to say:

As <i>Glee</i> Says Goodbye to Cory Monteith, Here’s How Other Shows Dealt With a Star’s Death

When Glee star Cory Monteith passed away on July 13 at the too-young age of 31 due to a lethal combination of drugs and alcohol, many wondered how the show would deal with his shocking death. While the original concept from creator Ryan Murphy was to directly address the actor's drug issue, the episode called "The Quarterback" -- which airs this Thursday -- will now simply pay tribute to the beloved character of Finn Hudson. While we don't know yet how his character will have died, or if the show will ever tell us, Glee will say goodbye to both Finn and Cory the best way they know how: by singing about it. The episode will feature a series of musical goodbyes, including a number from Monteith's on and off-screen love Lea Michele.

New Girl: The Do’s and Don’ts of Sexual Sabotage

<i>New Girl</i>: The Do’s and Don’ts of Sexual Sabotage

Well that was an awfully manic episode of New Girl, wasn't it? I mean, it makes sense, considering all four of the loftmates have spiraled into different levels of mania, but that didn't make "The Captain" any less of a strange episode. An especially evil and vindictive Schmidt made good on his word to do everything in his power to split up a newly emotional Nick and sexually awakened Jess, who fell for his trickery. Winston…well, Winston had another storyline involving his cat.

<i>The Millers</i>: Or, <i>The Farters</i>, Starring Margo Fartindale and Will Fartnett

"It's a fart. Some people think they’re funny." That's what Margo Martindale's character Carol, a screeching cliché of a helicopter mother, declares in the pilot of CBS' new comedy The Millers. That sums up the apparent operating principle behind this show: fart jokes. So many fart jokes.

<i>Super Fun Night</i>: Not So Much a Super Fun Night As a Potentially Fun One

There's something hiding underneath the surface of Super Fun Night, the new show from breakout star Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect, Bridesmaids). There's a good idea at its core, one that hits a lot of untapped nerves in the current television landscape, but too many factors are holding it back right now. Granted, the first episode of a series isn't always the best barometer for how a show will turn out, so I'm hoping Super Fun Night will begin to live up to its name soon.

Ironside: Shake the Rust Off

<I>Ironside</I>: Shake the Rust Off

This new cop drama is based on an old cop drama from the '60s/'70s, and let's just say that this is not the next fun Hawaii Five-0-style remake. This will not be our new guilty pleasure. And we will not be 'shipping any of the leads. We'd be surprised if we ever even make it to a second episode. There are about a dozen too many New York cop shows on the air currently, and this one isn't original enough to make it into our rotation. It just failed to make any sort of lasting impression on us at all.

Hello Ladies: Goodbye Stephen

<i>Hello Ladies</i>: Goodbye Stephen

Since the original British run of The Office propelled them out of obscurity and into the comedy big leagues, Stephen Merchant has largely existed in the shadow of his friend and creative partner, Ricky Gervais -- the gawky Samwise to his jerky Frodo. Initially, his sidekick status was something as a hindrance as much of the attention and acclaim that greeted The Office and later Extras was directed at his co-writer. But in the long run, being in the background has probably paid off for as Gervais has steadily gone from being the life of the party to the guy nobody wants in the room (courtesy of those initially funny, then disastrous Golden Globes gigs), Merchant's career prospects and public persona have remained largely unchanged. He's still the gangly guy who practices the same brand of awkward humor as his buddy, but seems far less mean about it.

Parks & Recreation: Everyone’s Knocked Up and Pawnee Sucks

<I>Parks & Recreation</I>: Everyone’s Knocked Up and Pawnee Sucks

What a delightfully enjoyable hour of television. With part of the Pawnee gang heading to London (hence the premiere title "London, Part 1 and 2"), I was a little concerned that the stateside storylines would falter in the process. And while I'm pretty much over anything Mona-Lisa related, she was used in a remarkably sparingly way that actually didn't make me want to claw my eyes out. I was so overwhelmed by this show that I was momentarily paralyzed with all my emotions.
