There's music that sticks with you — like Megan's can't-get-it-out-of-your-head "Zou Bisou Bisou" birthday party bump and grind from Mad Men — and music you can't wait to forget: as in whatever the hell Katharine McPhee was screaming on that revolving mattress-prison during the ambush production number on Smash's worst episode to date.
Which seems an appropriate way to begin our medley of some of the week's notable hits and misses.
Yvette Nicole Brown
Community had a huge test Thursday — and it passed.
Facing off against both American Idol and The Big Bang Theory for the first time since its return, the NBC comedy held steady with 3.6 million viewers and a 1.7 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic. It is Community's second-highest rating since Sept. 29.

Big Bang, which featured ...
Claire Holt and Ian Somerhalder

Klaus is back on this week's episode of The Vampire Diaries! Does he have a way to unlink the siblings or will the white oak stake take him down for good? Keep reading to find out.
"We're going vampire hunting, Ric"
After going pyscho-killer on Meredith, Alaric is back to his normal self in the care of Damon. But rather than resting up, he's been tasked by Damon to whittle the Wickery Bridge sign into stakes — 12 to be exact. Damon and Stefan then take said stakes and arm Caroline, Matt and Elena with the weapons to take down the Originals.
Claire Holt, Joseph Morgan
The Vampire Diaries' Damon (Ian Somerhalder) may have found a way to kill Klaus (Joseph Morgan), but he'll soon realize that staking him won't solve his problems. In fact, it might make them worse.
Producers of serialized dramas hate spoilers and famously put cast and crew on lockdown to keep juicy plot points under wraps. But how do you avoid spoilers when your hit show — like Pretty Little Liars, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Vampire Diaries, Dexter, True Blood and The Secret Circle, all known for shocking twists — is based on a series of books? Your options: either mislead viewers, change up the story just a bit or take...

Every week I ask for Private Practice news and will keep asking till I get some. Please, I'm desperate! Any CharCoop news? —Kriti
NATALIE: Erica's inevitable demise will be the first parenting challenge for Charlotte and Cooper. "Their principal concern is Mason's psychological well-being in dealing with her [death]," Paul Adelstein says. "He said goodbye to her, but she's still alive and he knows she's still alive, so as much resolution as there was, that actually causes some problems. Then they're going to have a grieving child, and they're going to be grieving themselves, so it's a big challenge for them."
It's odd, but I missed Betty in the Mad Men premiere. When will be seeing her? — Ashley
