Josh Radnor and Cristin Milioti

Our top moments of the week:

11. Best Reveal: Leslie and Ann are forced to find a celebrity spokesperson for Sweetums' latest sports drink on Parks and Recreation so that they can break ground on the park project that spawned their friendship. After their top pick turns them down, Ann is able to work her charm with local news personality Perd Hapley and convinces him to forget about his journalistic integrity for "old time's sake." Leslie quickly realizes that Ann and Perd have a romantic history. As Ann explains, it was just drinks while she was exploring her freedom as a single woman a few years back. "And at the end, he said, 'I am going to kiss you now by putting my mouth on... read more

Thursday Review: A Parks and Rec Farewell, Comedy Legends on Men

Rob Lowe, Rashida Jones

Emotions have been running high lately on NBC's best Thursday comedies. Saying goodbye to beloved characters can have that effect. Last week, Community sent Abed's playmate Troy (Donald Glover) off to sail the world with LeVar Burton, but not before staging one last epic stunt that turned Greendale into Lava World. This week, the focus shifts to a more grounded yet fictional Indiana — where, incidentally, there is an actual Greendale (I grew up there) — as Pawnee prepares a going-away bash for Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe) and Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones) on Parks and Recreation that may not be as surreal as Community's but compensates with a reservoir of genuine emotion and character-rich moments. read more

Thursday Review: Rake, a Community Farewell, Vampire Turns 100

Greg Kinnear

Fox enjoyed eight seasons of great success with House, a high-concept medical procedural about an incorrigible, deeply flawed medical genius. I'm not sure I could make it through eight episodes (I've seen two so far) of Louse — also known as Rake (Thursday, 9/8c) — which must have been pitched to Fox, via the series' Australian roots, as "House in a courtroom," a high-concept legal dramedy about an incorrigible, deeply flawed law maverick.

NBC Boss "Unhappy" with Thursday Struggles, Renews Parks and Rec

Amy Poehler, Michael J. Fox

NBC has learned its lesson. 

Last season, after a strong fall powered by The Voice and Revolution, NBC not only kept the shows off the air until March 2013, but chose not to launch any midseason series in January, cuing up a huge collapse.

"Essentially the momentum from last fall fell away. This year things are different," NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said Sunday at the network's Television Critics Association winter previews. "Of course, we've got the Olympics for 18 nights, but I also think we've also gotten smarter about how we've scheduled January and February. We didn't take The Blacklist off the air in January. ... Last Monday's episode ... saw a 60 percent jump in the demo."

Golden Globes: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's Best Jokes

Tina Fey, Amy Poehler

Memo to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association: Please have Tina Fey and Amy Poehlerhost the Golden Globes forever. (For that matter, the Academy should take note as well.) The former Saturday Night Live colleagues, hosting the Globes for the second year in a row, got the evening off to a rollicking start with an opening monologue that lampooned everyone fromTom Hanks to Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and kept the night on track with a couple of skits and one rock star makeout session.
