See, this is why you should make Christmas lists, kids!
Almost a year ago, Watercooler asked Santa for a few things in regards to Glee, and last night, we got the one we wanted the most: More Santana. In fact, it was like a "a very special Santanisode" that saw the spitfire who once declared "the only straight I am is straight-up bitch" officially embracing her Sapphic self and showcased the always-delicious Naya Rivera's ability to be all sorts of fierce, funny and believably vulnerable. Her version of "Constant Craving" with Idina Menzel? That was just extra awesome-sauce on the side.
When Chord Overstreet failed to come to contractual terms with the producers of Glee over the summer, his character, Sam Evans, was abruptly written off. (In the season premiere, it was explained that his out-of-work father had landed a job in Kentucky.)
On December 6, viewers finally get some resolution when Chord returns to McKinley High just when New Directions needs him most...
Up All Night executive producer Emily Spivey has reason to stay out late and celebrate. Her critically acclaimed comedy, which stars Christina Applegate and Will Arnett as new parents, moves to the comedy big leagues — NBC's Thursday night lineup, behind The Office — starting January 12. Spivey tackled our show-runner survey to explain why her sitcom is worth staying Up All Night for.
TV Guide Magazine: I've got room for one new show on my DVR. Why should it be yours?
Emily Spivey: It's funny and...
The Walking Dead
When you absolutely, positively have to determine whether a zombie has devoured a missing girl, there's only one thing to do: Shoot it in the head and disembowel what's left of the flesh-eater's rotting corpse.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
TNT is going by the book in its approach to launching what the network is calling Mystery Movie Night, reviving a classic genre of TV by leaning heavily on best-selling brand names in the first wave of six titles airing through December on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Marla Gibbs, Regina King
Regina King was just 14 when she started playing Brenda, the smart, sassy daughter of Marla Gibbs' Mary Jenkins on the NBC sitcom 227. Two decades later, King is taking care of 80-year-old Gibbs in the January 24 episode of TNT's Southland.
Pretty Little Liars
Why orange ya smiling, ladies? Pretty Little Liars resumes its second season on ABC Family January 2, and while we're thrilled to have them back, our heroines aren't exactly jump-suiting for joy. Emily, Hanna, Aria and Spencer will suffer through a less-than-fashionable community-service sentence.
It has scarcely been the best week on Community's set. On November 14, NBC announced its January schedule, and the acclaimed cult comedy about the eccentric members of a community-college study group whose outsize, genre-bending adventures frequently boggle the mind was missing in action.
TV Guide Magazine
All together now: Pop pop! The Greendale gang emerged victorious in TV Guide Magazine's second annual "Fan Favorites" cover contest. Editor-in-chief Debra Birnbaum revealed Community's three collector's covers — on newsstands Thursday, December 1 — on NBC's Today show this morning.
The third-season sitcom edged out another NBC cult fave (and last year's runner-up to Supernatural), Chuck, for the top honors. The network caused an uproar ...
