Few things bring more pleasure than watching a deservedly hit comedy firing on all cylinders. Such is the case with this week's rollicking The Big Bang Theory (Thursday, 8/7c on CBS), which no matter how long we've enjoyed it still manages to show that it has new tricks up its sleeve — notably, Simon Helberg's gift for celebrity impressions. They come in handy as Howard assumes the role of dungeon master in a game of Dungeons & Dragons on what's supposed to be a boys' night, soon invaded by the gal pals when their plans for a Vegas getaway crap out. "I've never played Dungeons & Dragons with girls before," whines the resistant-to-change Sheldon, to which Penny answers: "Don't worry, sweetie, no one has." Big boom!

According to the Associated Press, this season's Idol contract for finalists who aren't crowned America's most talented singer falls short of what the Fox reality series used to offer...
American Idol will welcome several former contestants as guest performers on the show's March 15 episode. Among them? Season 8's Adam Lambert, season 10's James Durbin, and runner-up Lauren Alaina, and season 5's Chris Daughtry.
Around this time every year, Fox executives and the American Idol producers start to panic, wondering if the show's huge audience will return en masse for the start of a new season. But this winter is different. Idol defied the odds last January, engineering a successful reboot with the addition of new judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler. And more importantly, the show's talent made a comeback as well, thanks in part to the countrified sounds of finalists Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery.
Now, as American Idol enters its 11th season, no one's predicting the show's demise. Even with The X Factor and The Voice on the scene, rivals concede that Idol, the granddaddy of them all, remains a ratings monster. For the first time in four seasons, there are...

Is he a good Santa or a bad Santa? Sounds like a case for Brenda Leigh Johnson (Kyra Sedgwick), and in a very campy Christmas episode of TNT's The Closer (9/8c) — one of many holiday episodes we'll be weighing in on this week — the Santa is ...
Always a popular (if sometimes contentious) topic in my Ask Matt forum, Fox's Bones refutes any notion that its heart isn't in the right place in this week's ultimately touching episode (9/8c). Ralph Waite (forever Papa Walton to many of us, though nowadays better known as Jethro's dad on NCIS) makes a welcome return as Booth's grandfather, bearing some unwelcome news that has the very pregnant Bones (Emily Deschanel) wondering how best to reach ...
