The fact that Community has gotten a third season at all is baffling. Yeah, it's an amazing series, a multi-Tubey winner and one of our favorite comedies in recent history, but the ratings have been so miniscule, we've been shocked for two years running that TPTB continue to let it bloom. More shocked then us is the Joel McHale himself, who -- along with new cast member John Goodman, who plays Vice Dean Laybourne, dean of the highly regarded Air Conditioning Repair Annex at Greendale -- took a media call to tell us about the hopes vs. realities of life at Greendale Community. Below are the highlights.
Lots of new series are getting started up, including a few that sound... interesting.
We see Steven Tyler, Kevin Spacey and a wedding in our future! Are they marrying each other? Is one of them marrying their mic stand, and the other officiating? Read on to find out!
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.
The new season of Community premieres tonight, and since it was one of our favorite new shows last year, and the cliffhanger finale had us dying for more episodes, we jumped at the chance to do a last-minute interview with stars Joel McHale and Donald Glover. They told us what we can look forward to this season, where they think their characters' love lives are headed, and which reality shows they'd kick ass at.
Not all gun-toters are Palin fans, apparently.
In today's roundup: A Ron Silver memorial, The Tonight Show is an inappropriate place for important people who have better things to do, Sons of Anarchy hires the perfect new guest star, the Sci Fi Channel has lost its damn mind, Top Model hopefuls are a violent people, and Chevy Chase does what Chevy Chase does.
In Joel McHale's viral Internet dreams, that is! Let's just say the brilliant and always hilarious Soup host has declared his passion for Spencer Pratt the only way he knows how -- by re-making Heidi Montag's "Addicted" video, drinking a lot of wine, donning hot pants and crying into his sparkly Chihuahua, Lou. Don't cry, Joel! We've all been there. If I had a music video parody for every time I cried into a dog over unrequited reality star love, I'd... well I'd have no music video parodies, but I still relate to Joel's pain somehow, and you will too, after the jump! Props to Best Week Ever for finding the clip.
It's back-to-school time, and we're actually looking forward to it. Not because we wish our children would get out of the house, but because one of the new fall shows we're looking forward to starts tonight, and it's a school-based comedy called Community. Following a slightly evil lawyer who has to re-earn his law degree at a local community college, we meet a half-dozen of his fellow students of varying ages, as well some of the school's bizarre teaching staff. Joel McHale plays the main character, Jeff, and we got to talk to him and series creator Dan Harmon on a conference call as they discussed their experiences on the set. There will be a quiz later.
It's damn near the middle of August, which only means one thing: it's almost time for real television to come back! And to get us all super psyched about our favorite returning shows and our potential favorite new shows, NBC forced the amazing Joel McHale to star in their fall preview videos. Watch as he picks up trash, tortures Jay Leno and makes jokes about all the new medical shows while introducing the fall NBC trailers. As far as network marketing goes, it's no ABC House, but Joel McHale is never not awesome, even when he's talking to Jay Leno.
