NEW and/or NOTABLE
COMMUNITY (8PM NBC, CityTV in Canada)
Abed and Jeff’s plan to boost the spirits of a lonely student with a spirited game of Dungeons and Dragons raises one very important question. Despite that fact that D&D has provided for countless decades of television fodder, has anyone ever actually met anyone who has played the game with say the last two decades? After-all, any nerd worth their collar pips knows that World of Warcraft is totally where it’s at. Oh, and by the way, if you picked up on that collar pips reference, tonight’s episode of COMMUNITY is most definitely for for you.

AMERICAN IDOL (8PM FOX, ATV in Canada)
We’re not sure how they’re planning on kicking off tonight’s episode, but an apology for last night’s “apology” sounds just about right.

GREY’S ANATOMY (9PM ABC, CTV in Canada)
On tonight’s Kevin McKidd directed instalment, Dr. Miranda Bailey becomes a Twitter star. Just don’t be asking us for her Twitter handle. Evidently, we’re that bitter that a fictional television character has already amassed more followers in four days than we have in three years!

For all the latest TV news and reviews

  • For me, Community, Perfect Couples, The Office, Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, Outsourced, Archer, The Big Bang Theory, The Vampire Diaries, Nikita, The Mentalist, Jersey Shore (seriously), Bones and Royal Pains.

    So far I’ve found Outsourced much better than Perfect Couples.
