'How I Met Your Mother' Season 6, Episode 22 Recap

['How I Met Your Mother' - 'The Perfect Cocktail'] Silliness is a tool that's hard to manage if you're a sitcom writer. Used well, it can do a good job of wrapping a more emotional story in laughs and guffaws. Used poorly, it's as glaring as a watch reflecting the sun. In other words, it becomes more of a distraction than anything else. Tonight's episode had some very clever silliness, but...

'Parks and Recreation' Season 3, Episode 11 Recap

['Parks and Recreation' - 'Jerry's Painting'] Jerry Gergich is a misunderstood soul in the Parks Department. He's an artist, a poet, and a very loving and sensitive husband, but the Parks gang think of him as a buffoon who always screws up, and marginalizes him whenever possible. So it's fitting that, even though this super-sized episode of 'Parks and Rec' is called 'Jerry's Painting,'...

'The Office' Says Goodbye to Steve Carell -- Recap

['The Office' - 'Goodbye Michael'] It's interesting; even though this wasn't even the season finale of 'The Office,' much less a series finale, it sure felt like a series finale, didn't it? Steve Carell was the heart and soul of the show and, from what I've seen, the writers and producers have yet to give us evidence that the show can go on without him. So, in a lot of ways, this feels...

'Cougar Town' Moment -- Bobby Hits the Wrong Ball

There's always crazy stuff going on in 'Cougar Town.' Busy Philipps' character, Laurie Keller, now has a Twitter feed, @thelarmy, where you see her supposedly tweeting while things are going on in the episode. Then there's Jules and her penchant for bodily-shutting-down when embarrassed; wouldn't you shut down, though, if a bunch of 6-year-olds tell you that the name "Richard Stands" isn't in the...

Watch Every TV Comedy Star You Can Think Of in the Beastie Boys' New Video (NSFW)

We're not sure how they were able to do this, but the Beastie Boys just released a video with pretty much every major TV and movie comedy star you can think of, leaning heavily towards the TV side. At least the reason why they did it was a good one: Believe it or not, it's been 25 years since the Beastie Boys tore up MTV with their classic music video '(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to...

Damon Wayans on Working With His Son on 'Happy Endings' ... and Why They Went Clubbing Together

If you've been watching the new ABC relationship comedy 'Happy Endings' and noticed that one of the actors looks and acts a lot like Damon Wayans, you're right. That actor is Damon Wayans, just not the one you usually think of. It's Damon Wayans Jr., son of the 'In Living Color' and 'My Wife and Kids' star. And if you ask Damon Wayans Sr., he's pretty proud of his son. "Everybody says the same...

'Glee' Season 2, Episode 18 Recap

['Glee' - 'Born This Way'] Faced with 90 minutes of airspace -- more like 60 or so, after commercials -- to fill, 'Born This Way' could have gone in any number of bad, self-indulgent directions. We could have had wall-to-wall music, or the Gleesters could have done a medley that lasted ten minutes long. Or, we could have had a handful of story threads going at once, none of them progressing...

Cee Lo Green and Carson Daly on Why 'The Voice' Is Less Pretentious Than 'Idol' (VIDEO)

Even though I've never been a huge fan of 'American Idol,' I have to admit that the concept of NBC's new singing competition show, 'The Voice,' is intriguing (premieres Tuesday, April 26, 9PM ET). Four of the hottest names in the music business -- Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine of Maroon 5, and country star Blake Shelton -- listen to singers without seeing what they look like....

Why Donald Trump Wants Star Jones to Go Far on 'The Celebrity Apprentice'

This is far from the first time I've written these words, but I'm going to write them again: 'The Apprentice' is a sham of a competition, and it's because Donald Trump is the only one who determines who stays and who goes. It's not like other competition shows, where a panel of judges have to come to some sort of consensus, or a voting show where the person who gets the fewest phoned-in,...
