With only three more episodes left in this season of one of the funniest shows on television, we were excited to get an exclusive one-on-two with Joel McHale (Jeff Winger) and Gillian with a hard "G" Jacobs (Britta Perry) to talk about what's in store in the two-part finale -- a follow-up to one of their most popular episodes -- as well as what we might see down the road. We probably should have asked the show's writers about that last bit, but it's always fun to hear what two really funny people think should happen to their characters. Writers, take note.
NBC has revealed the fall and midseason slate of new shows that are meant to save the network, and some of them look good! But some of them... do not, we'll say. I woke up bright and early this morning to attend the red-carpet portion of the network's upfront presentation to get season finale spoilers from current NBC talent, and to ask the new stars what the hell their shows are about and, in one case, why their show is so racist. (Also, while I couldn't get an interview with Tina Fey, I did eavesdrop the hell out of all her conversations, which were all about shrimp. Just a little tidbit.) Read on for all the information I could get out of strangers in two or three questions while their publicists desperately tried to tear them away from me.
