I'm not entirely sure precisely when Community is supposed to take its little break, but I'm guessing it won't be until later in December. For the moment, you should maybe just record these episodes and not watch them and spool them out to yourselves over the course of the next few months, in a desperate attempt to pretend that Whitney isn't actually the show that's replacing it in the timeslot. Or, you could watch them as they come, with tissues in hand, knowing that the end of an era is fast approaching.
Or you could just watch one of these fine shows:
|It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia|
FX 10 PM: "Mac tells a befuddled priest why his fatness is the fault of the other members of the gang." That sounds exactly like what priests are for: fatness explanations.
|The Big Bang Theory|
CBS 8 PM: "Sheldon is jealous when Stuart (Kevin Sussman), a guy from the comic book store, asks Amy out on a date." Oh, Sheldon! If only I wasn't around, you'd be America's favorite dork.
|Person of Interest|
CBS 9 PM: "After learning the latest person of interest (Alan Dale) has connections to Cold War Soviet espionage circles, Reese and Finch learn how covert operations used to be handled." This episode is 60 minutes of a history lesson, as Reese and Finch do nothing but read wikipedia.
CBS 10 PM: "The team retraces Jane's investigation, looking for clues about the killer of an undercover cop." Where's Dr. Dre been lately? Are they checking up on his alibi?
NBC 8 PM: "Dean Pelton asks the study group to star in a new commercial for the school; Abed films the project for a documentary." A documentary about their impending doom, perhaps? Enjoy the show while it lasts!
|Parks and Recreation|
NBC 8:30 PM: "Leslie uses her new tourist attraction to spend more time with Ben; Ron and April encourage Andy to further his education; Chris assigns a logo redesign to Tom and Jerry." SO MANY NAMES I CAN'T KEEP EM STRAIGHT.
NBC 9 PM: "Andy tries to motivate the staff by taking them on a field trip to Gettysburg; Robert asks those who stay behind to come up with the company's next big idea." Opinions on this season's episodes? I hear nothing but bad things, personally.
NBC 9:30 PM: "Whitney and Alex try to adopt a dog, but the pound owner (Lisa Lampanelli) makes the process more difficult than they anticipated; Roxanne seeks financial advice." My ex-girlfriend used to call me a pound owner, but it wasn't because I liked dogs. Hey-o!
NBC 10 PM: "Jane has a tough time persuading a young girl to describe the man who murdered her parents in a New York hotel room." Episode eight of this show, which means there are probably only five left before they run out! Will it even make it to the end of the half-season? We'll find out together!
FX 10:30 PM: "Ruxin gets an unexpected visit from his father (Jeff Goldblum); Andre's sister (Sarah Silverman) goes on the prowl at the gang's thanksgiving dinner; Taco makes an edible investment; Kevin and Jenny deal with the family's new pet." The term "edible investment" is a good euphemism to cover up how much money you spend on booze, I guess.
FOX 9 PM: "Booth and Sweets are given access to a toy company's headquarters after an executive's remains are found packaged with a Prince Charming doll; Sweets prepares for his gun certification test; Brennan worries about motherhood." That's a lot of stuff going on in an hour-long episode. Although I guess they don't even need to show the worrying part; we can take it for granted that that is happening at all times, it being a mental state and all that.
|The X Factor|
Fox 8 PM: "Rihanna performs; a contestant is eliminated." So do they eliminate one contestant a week? This show's going to take forever; there are still ten of them left.
|Beavis and Butt-Head|
MTV 10 PM: "The boys make a documentary about teen obesity; Butt-head realizes he is paid for bathroom breaks." Yup, sounds like Beavis and Butt-head. Have I ever said that I kind of rankle every time I have to hyphenate Butt-head? As a proper name, I yield to Mike Judge's wishes, but no one hyphenates the word "butthead," do they?
USA 10 PM: "Michael runs point on a CIA rescue mission; Sam and Jesse go undercover as microchip specialists." Reminds me of the time I had to go undercover as a microchip specialist.
