Are you ready to ride the palomino stallion... again?
San Diego's Channel 4 Evening News team, aka Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner, are back...
KNOPE CAN DO! On a thoroughly charming Parks and Recreation finale, eternal idealist Leslie Knope achieves her lifelong dream of being voted into office — and Amy Poehler captures every nail-biting emotion, from overwhelmed pride at casting a vote for herself to premature despair, an ultimately genuine joy and gratitude to all the friends who made this possible. Her opponent Bobby Newport isn't the only one who's relieved — and geez, show, Paul Rudd is such an adorable boob (the way he stares at a boom mike like it's a chew toy), can't he stick around as a mascot or something? Pawnee City Council may not be Washington, D.C. (where Ben appears to be heading, casting a long-distance pall over the celebration), and a 21-vote margin of victory isn't much of a mandate, but who cares when you have friends like a whisky-laden Ron Swanson, who tells Leslie when she's down that the team rallied to her cause because "that's what you do when you care about someone: You support 'em win, lose or draw." Awww.
The Big Bang Theory
One small gesture can be worth a thousand punch lines. This becomes clear in the last moments of The Big Bang Theory's funny and ultimately touching season finale (CBS, 8/7c), as the gang prepares to watch Howard Walowitz — or "Froot Loops," to his fellow astronauts (you'll learn why) — go into space. But not before hastily arranging an accelerated wedding for Howard and his beloved, Bernadette (Don't Call Her Ma), whose one condition is that ...
Peyton List and John Slattery
I'll have what he's having. (Well, maybe not the divorce.)
Roger Sterling's exhilarating LSD trip on Sunday's Mad Men set the tone and raised the bar for another wacky week in the world of TV. The disorienting centerpiece of another masterful episode exploring the needs and dashed desires of its central characters, Mad Men's acid trip (played to the tune of The Beach Boys' "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times") was harrowing
Danny Pudi, Donald Glover
Welcome to May sweeps (albeit still in April) and, more important, the countdown to the end of the official broadcast season on May 23. Meaning an end, for now, to those pesky repeats and the start-and-stop scheduling of favorite shows. Reason enough to celebrate? Wait until you see what NBC has in store for you tonight (or at least for those choosy few who gravitate toward the network's better Thursday night comedies).

I need Good Wife scoop! Tell me what happens when Alicia is asked about her relationship with Will in court? — Geena
ADAM: First things first: Alicia and Peter will finally have "the capital-T Talk" about Will. But despite the last-ditch efforts of an unlikely ally, Alicia will still have to testify. But it's not as dire as it seems: This time, Alicia's humiliation will be somewhat private.
I love Paul Rudd on Parks and Recreation? Is it bad that I'm secretly rooting for Bobby Newport to win just so he'll stick around? — Marcus
NATALIE: No, we're all thinking it. But...
Leslie Knope is one strong contender for City Council, but there's one man who could be brave enough to oppose her.
Paul Rudd is reportedly joining the race for Pawnee City Council on Parks and Recreation, according to Vulture. A source tells the site that Rudd shot his scenes sometime last year and will appear in at least one upcoming episode of the NBC comedy.
In case anyone had any doubt what Jason Segel was promoting on Saturday Night Live, the How I Met Your Mother star wasted no time in bringing out his colorful co-stars from The Muppets movie. During his monologue, Segel decided to sing about how he couldn't believe he's hosting SNL, when Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang hijacked his song and assumed that they were all hosting the show together as a group...
