Is Community Really Going to Be "Less Weird" This Year?

Joel McHale, Community

"We're gonna have more fun and be less weird than the first two years combined!"

So sings — yes, sings — the Greendale Community College study group as NBC's Community kicks off its third season.

Fall Preview: Get scoop on your favorite returning shows

The flashy opening number speaks to creator Dan Harmon's plan for the third season, which he says won't be as stunt-episode heavy as the self-referential comedy has been in the past.

"I don't want to disappoint any more of the more hyperactive savvy fans that love nothing more than the fact that the show is completely unpredictable," Harmon first told TVGuide.com at the end of Season 2. "I have to continue a promise to the audience to always engage them in every part of their brain that love television. But at the same time I've got to get my mom more comfortable with the show."

But doesn't an elaborate song-and-dance routine fly in the face of that? read more

Maria Bello

And now, the main event. At least that's how Thursdays used to feel in past seasons.

Here's a quick overview of Thursday's programming strategies, with thoughts on tonight's pilots and some of the more notable returns.

Exec Producer Betsy Thomas: There's Room Among NBC's Snobby Sitcoms for Whitney's Comedy

Whitney Cummings and Chris D’Elia

NBC's Thursday night lineup was once dubbed Must-See TV — and with shows like The Office, Community and Parks and Recreation leading the comedy block, it's hard to say things have really changed from the days when Friends and Seinfeld once held court. This makes it even more challenging for new comedy Whitney to gain its footing at 9:30/8:30c, a spot previously held by the likes of 30 Rock, which returns midseason, and the short-lived Outsourced.

Mega Buzz: Tiva Time on NCIS? Plus: Fringe's Future and Stabler's SVU Exit

Michael Weatherly, Joshua Jackson, Christopher Meloni

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Please tell me E.J. Barrett's NCIS return will be short-lived. I need Tiva! — Hanna
ADAM:
Let's let Michael Weatherly offer his take. "There's a new wrinkle in [Tony and E.J.'s] relationship, and I would say it is somewhat troubling," he says. "I think Tony questions a lot of things about her, and I don't think there's any going back to their initial blinky-blinky, lovey-dovey plot." But before your little 'shipper heart explodes, that doesn't necessarily guarantee loads of Tony-Ziva goodness. "Tony ultimately has to lean on himself. He has to figure some of his own stuff out," Weatherly says. "That might make him more able down the road to approach a relationship with Ziva."

Will Fringe go back to the future this season? —Barry
NATALIE:
Yes, but it won't be the same future we saw in the finale. "The future that we saw in 2026... read more

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

How will Jim and Pam handle the new baby on The Office? — Marisa
NATALIE:
With Pam's hormones in overdrive, she won't know who to trust, causing her to seek out an unlikely ally. "She's clearly in a position where everyone is lying to her to make her feel better, except for Dwight, and she starts to think he's the only person she can trust," executive producer Paul Lieberstein says. After she gives birth, though, it'll be Jim who has problems. "Usually, he wants to get out of work, but it might be a little easier for him at work than at home."

Any news on Calleigh and Eric getting back together on CSI: Miami? — Lizzie, via Twitter
ADAM:
There will be definite movement on that front in the Season 10 premiere. "Right away in the first episode, we... read more
