I want some Parks and Recreation news, STAT! — John
NATALIE:
Is a Pawnee progeny on the way? It would make sense, now that Ben and Leslie are tying the knot. But then why is Ann looking at sperm donors? "She's on this whole self-discovery kick and she is exploring all of her options for her future," executive producer Mike Schur tells us. Who else thinks that Jean-Ralphio will be involved somehow?

Top Moments: Paula Abdul Gets Trippy on Dancing, Homeland Cranks It Up to 11

MC Skat Kat and Paula Abdul

Our top moments of the week:

12. Least Favorite Follow-Up: Knowing how gravely she deprived us of ear-piecing screams and uncontrollable tears last year, Oprah Winfrey resurrects her "Favorite Things" — except it's not the "Favorite Things" we know and love. As part of a making-of documentary — during which O thinks she's getting high from pigs in a blanket — the episode features only 30 handpicked military spouses, who do their best freak-outs, but it's all a little flat. Let's face it, strength is in numbers. At least we'll always have SNL.

11. Best Origin Story: This is the true story... read more

VIDEO: Parks and Recreation's Amy Poehler Kisses... David Letterman?

Amy Poehler, David Letterman

Since Amy Poehler's Parks and Recreation character couldn't make a kiss with Vice President Joe Biden happen, she settled for the next best thing: David Letterman?

When the comedienne appeared on Late Show Tuesday, Poehler explained how her character Leslie Knope has a huge crush on Biden. When they filmed his recent guest appearance on her NBC comedy, Poehler says that for kicks, she tried to seal the deal with the VP. In turn, Letterman goes in for his own kiss, which you can watch in the clip below: read more

Blaine's not really going to go back to the Warblers on Glee, is he? — Sammy
NATALIE: Thursday's superhero-themed episode sure makes it look that way! Even worse, we're going to meet the "other man," the boy with whom Blaine cheated on Kurt. Can he sink much lower? Yes, but look for a surprising ally to give him a kick in the pants so he'll get his act together.

What can we expect from Finn's big episode of CSI? Brandon

Ratings: Big Bang Jumps to Series High, While The Office Ties a Series Low

Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg

The Big Bang Theory really is bigger than ever.

The CBS hit surged to an all-time high audience of 17.4 million viewers and a season-high 5.5 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic Thursday. That boosted lead-outs Two and a Half Men (13.9 million, 4.1) and Person of Interest (14.5 million, 3.1) to season highs in their ...

Parks and Recreation Scoop: Leslie's Wedding and Tom's New Business Venture

Adam Scott and Amy Poehler

Parks and Recreation is getting back into the business of, well, parks and recreation.

On Thursday's episode, the infamous Lot 48, which was once the pit that Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) had been so desperate to turn into a park, will return. But it's not Leslie leading the charge this time: April (Aubrey Plaza) wants to turn it into a dog park!

Parks and Recreation Exclusive: Megan Mullally returning as Tammy 2!

The lot's return, however, won't be the only pain in Leslie's side as she begins to plan for her wedding to Ben (Adam Scott). To find out what a Leslie Knope wedding would look like, TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Mike Schur, who also dished on Joe Biden's appearance, Tom's (Aziz Ansari) new business venture and... read more

NBC Boss: Why We're Tweaking Our Comedy Brand

Will Arnett, Christina Applegate

NBC may be on the rise this season, but comedy — traditionally one of the network's strong suits — hasn't played much of a role in its recovery. Freshman half-hour Go On is showing promise, but NBC's Thursday night block, once the home to "Must See TV," now limps along.

That's why execs are taking a long, hard look at its comedy brand to decide in what direction to steer the laughs next year. NBC introduced the new slogan "We Peacock Comedy" this fall, but what kind of comedy does NBC actually "Peacock"?< read more

I'm so excited about Ben and Bailey's wedding on Grey's Anatomy! Do you have any details? — Nora
NATALIE:
Let's just say getting Bailey actually down the aisle will be a miracle! "It's almost like pulling a tugboat to get her to cooperate, but the thing is happening with or without her, and she's got to get on board with the program at some point," Chandra Wilson says. "Bailey can be distracted very easily, and she's already been married and done it in what she thought was the right way and it failed, so there's a lot of fear going into it again." Look for her to get a kick in the butt from both Cristina and Callie.

Ratings: Big Bang, Men, The Office Reach Highs

Jim Parsons

Bazinga indeed!

The Big Bang Theory matched a series viewership high Thursday with 16.5 million viewers and a 5.0 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. Lead-out Two and a Half Men (14.1 million, 4.0) benefited greatly, reaching season highs in both measures.

Person of Interest followed with 14.7 million viewers and a 2.9, staying even, while Elementary (10.7 million, 2.2) slid ...
