Don Cheadle realizes he's best known for dramatic roles in such films as Crash, Hotel Rwanda and Traffic. But he finds it odd that so many viewers aren't expecting to see him flex his comedic muscles from him in his new series House of Lies.
"I do it all the time around my friends," he tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "It's not a...
Carl Reiner, Amy Poehler
How's this for your show of shows? TV Guide Magazine has learned exclusively that Parks and Recreation is set to host a living legend when comedy icon Carl Reiner guest stars as one of Pawnee's most powerful elders —and possibly a key player in Leslie's City Council campaign.
Friday Night Lights
From Oprah's surprisingly low-key farewell to the year's most soul-crushing break-up on The Good Wife (Kalicia, no!), the year was packed with fantastic hours of television — pretty much all of which we watched. There were teary goodbyes (Friday Night Lights' Texas forever! Smallville's tights and flights!), tense face-offs (why can't all CIA interrogations take place on the front porch of a cabin, like on Homeland?) and of course we made room for a little Glee (because certain underdogs deserved it). Which made the list. Tune in all week for our top 25.
Here's the fifth batch in our weeklong countdown of 2011's best episodes (Catch up first with Episodes 25-21, Episodes 20-16, Episodes 15-11 and Episodes 10-6. Or browse the full list here.):

Parks and Recreation
'Tis the season for holiday miracles, so why can't we hope the same for television? Santa, please give Cougar Town a premiere date. Hanukkah Harry, all we ask is that Steve Carell get awards recognition for his Office role. Harvest gods of Kwanzaa, let Castle and Beckett finally get together. And please, Winter Solstice Fairy, stop all the incest on TV!

Question: I often appreciate the Golden Globes because they show greater range in the nominations than the Emmys, which tend to nominate the same people long after the bloom is off the rose. However, this year's nominees are just weird. Boss and American Horror Story instead of Breaking Bad, Justified or The Good Wife (or Friday Night Lights, if it was eligible)? Callie Thorne? Jeremy Irons? ...
Rob Lowe, Drew Peterson: Untouchable
Rob Lowe is sporting quite the 'stache in Drew Peterson: Untouchable, the Lifetime movie based on the titular suspected wife killer.
The Parks and Recreation star portrays the womanizing police officer Drew Peterson, who was arrested in connection to the killing of his third wife and disappearance of his fourth, who is played by...
Larry David, Julianna Margulies
Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Good Wife and Game of Thrones were among the honorees on the American Film Institute's lists of top 10 TV shows of 2011.
Besides The Good Wife and Game of Thrones, other first-time AFI selections included Homeland, Justified, Louie and...
Our top moments of the week:
15. Worst Christmas Surprise: Andy is only asking for trouble on The Office when he invites his new girlfriend to the Christmas party at Dunder Mifflin where, in case you forgot, his ex-girlfriend still works. And you know what he gets in his stocking? Trouble. On the advice of an equally broken-hearted Robert California, Erin gets wasted at the party and winds up in a close hug (and maybe more?) with Robert, much to Andy's chagrin. What exactly were you expecting, Nard Dog?
14. Worst Break-Taking Moment: After not sleeping with anyone other than her boyfriend Spencer in more than six years, Jess is understandably worried that she won't be adventurous enough in the sack for her new guy, Paul (the equally adorkable....
Let us sing the praises of Community while we can — an apt sentiment as the NBC cult comedy, and recent TV Guide Magazine "Fan Favorite," airs its last original episode (8/7c) before taking an unwelcome and ...
Homeland, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire and Modern Family topped the Writers Guild of America nominations Wednesday with three apiece.
Homeland, Breaking Bad and Boardwalk will duke it out for drama series honors with Game of Thrones and The Good Wife, the only network representative in the lineup. Homeland and Game of Thrones are also ...
