With executive producers Dan Harmon and Chris McKenna back at the helm, critics and fans agreed that Community regained its mojo this past season. Considering the major arc for star Joel McHale, big guest turns by stars like Jonathan Banks and John Oliver, and an emotional farewell to star Donald Glover, it's reasonable to expect the show to be an Emmy contender in several key comedy categories, including Outstanding Writing.

Question: I imagine you must be getting flooded with questions and/or ranting about the finale of How I Met Your Mother. I was among those who left the finale feeling incredibly sad, not what I expect from a show that's kept me laughing (and sometimes crying) for the last nine years, even when others were saying that the quality had declined. The thing is, when looked at objectively, I don't even have a major problem (Major Problem!) with the content of the finale. Yes, people get divorced and people die. People get remarried after both, and I've known several people in my own life who have reconnected with an old girlfriend or high-school sweetheart after the death of a spouse. It doesn't invalidate the marriage or even lessen the feelings of loss. The finale itself had great moments: the high-infinity, Marshall's "positive talk" about his corporate job, Judge Fudge, the mother's Gore/Lieberman costume, robots versus wrestlers, etc. Seeing Barney with a child was wonderful, although I did think he had grown more than immediately going back to his old ways after his divorce. And the scene on the platform was near perfection as they wove in how their almost-shared history was influencing their connection, making the whole nine-year story relevant to how he'd actually met the mother. (By the way, one more TM would be the name we've known Tracy by: The Mother.)
The ATX Television Festival has announced its Year 3 lineup, including its first Achievement in Television Excellence Award, which will be presented to Henry Winkler.
Winkler, whose career spans from The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Happy Days to recent roles on Royal Pains and Arrested Development, will receive the award during the festival weekend with a ceremony and a Q&A.
Will they or won't they? It's an age-old question that has become synonymous with equally lovable and frustrating TV duos like David and Maddie, Sam and Diane, and Ross and Rachel. Will About a Boy's Will and Fiona soon join the ranks?
"Everybody I talk to just on the street ... is like, 'When are you getting together? I'm like, 'Sorry, dude," star David Walton told reporters at a recent screening. "It...
