Thursday TV Review: Community Returns, ABC's Assets

Paul Rhys

Happy New TV Year! With the Winter Olympics only a little more than a month away, the networks are wasting no time premiering new and returning shows through January, making this almost as busy a month for programming as the heights of September. Let the winter midseason begin.

BACK TO SCHOOL: Some underdogs adopt a never-say-die mentality. In the fringe world of wackiness known as NBC's Community, it's more like never say graduate, as the cult comedy returns for an against-the-odds fifth season with back-to-back episodes (Thursday, 8/7c) once again under the warped tutelage of mercurial series creator Dan Harmon.

Exclusive: Michael J. Fox on His Return to Series Television

Michael J. Fox

In his own words, the TV icon opens up about why he's turning his real life into a family sitcom, The Michael J. Fox Show.

I started to think about doing my own show as a result of my guest-starring roles on Boston Legal, Rescue Me and The Good Wife. I was feeling good that viewers accepted my characters and could distinguish them from me, for whatever brief amount of time. And then it just clicked with me that acting is what I do. It's what I like to do. So I'd better have a really good reason for not doing it.

Treme Season 3: Money Flows, But It's the Culture That's Rich

Wendell Pierce

Money makes the world go 'round, but on the third season of HBO's Treme, it just makes life in post-Katrina New Orleans that much harder.

"The first season you saw the people come back," co-creator David Simon tells TVGuide.com. "The second season, the problems began to come back. And this third season, some money and some opportunity starts to present itself. But in this country, nothing is free and nothing is without strings. Everything is a hard choice." read more

The Beat Goes On: Treme Settles in for the "Long Haul" of Season 2

Wendell Pierce

In an early episode of Treme's second season, a disc jockey asks one of the show's musician characters how his new album is selling. "Selling?" the musician replies in almost disbelief. "It's jazz, man."

The dialogue is a perfect metaphor for the HBO drama, whose co-creators, The Wire's David Simon and Eric Overmyer, have always favored atmosphere and character over plot. Like that incredulous musician, Simon is more concerned with art than television ratings, because he says it's the... read more
