This week in TV clips was at times horrifying, but ended on a positive note. Last week's 'X Factor Flashing' gave way to the Nancy Grace nip slip. And then Andy Rooney retired, which inspired outpouring of mash-ups saluting his career in grumpy old man musings. Both Ed Helms and Seth Rogen got Jersey Turnpiked by the 'Jersey Shore.' But then Jaleel White came back into our TV lives and set everything back right in the world.

And doesn't it seem appropriate that it would happen in a dump? We're not saying their relationship is dumpy in any way, but just that it's been a long and rocky road to get this far, with the '12 Days of Christmas' debacle and everything else. And it's so sweet how she put her little coat around him. Go, Andy and Erin!
Watch the video after the jump.
There's plenty of homegrown look-at-me content on YouTube, but every once in a while, there's that rare find that makes your work day a little bit brighter.
For fans of 'The Office,' the latest mash-up -- set to the tune of Billy Joel's 'We Didn't Start the Fire' -- is a must-watch. It cleverly recaps classic and more recent moments, from the kidnapped pizza delivery kid and Andy's bloody fun run nipples to the toaster oven incident-turned-catchy refrain "Ryan started the fire."
Could you watch Michael Scott dance on the booze cruise all day? Are you Scrantonicity's biggest fan? And how much is a Schrute Buck really worth? Watch. Giggle. Enjoy.
I got an episode that won't necessarily go down in the annals of time as an Office classic, but does bring us back to the core of the show: the office. The episode takes place entirely in one day, entirely in the office, and virtually every cast member gets pulled into one storyline or the other. For me, this is when The Office is at its best, when its presenting us barely controlled chaos. Offices are constantly bustling with activity productive or otherwise. Tonight's episode captured just that, and very well.
Ed Helms' status has been changed from "recurring" to "regular" on The Office.
This is a little surprising to me. I thought that Andy and Karen would only be on the show for this season, since they were the newbies in the Dunder-Mifflin office and were brought over to just be a wrench in the Jim/Pam and Michael/Dwight relationships. And I thought that this was confirmed in the last couple of episodes, since Jim told Karen he still likes Pam and Michael was hip to Andy's sneaky, suckup-ish ways. But I guess that the people behind the scenes have more plans for these two characters.
Of course, Rashida Jones, who plays Karen, still hasn't been made a regular, so maybe she's on her way out after all. Though if Pam gets back together with Roy, maybe Jim will need her again.
(S03E08) I think what I like best about Michael Scott is that he believes the hype. About himself. That he creates.
The long-awaited merger of the Scranton and Stamford offices took place in this episode and, of course, Michael is putting out all the stops to make his new staffers feel welcome. You can see the utter joy in his face when he says, "My family is doubling in size." A family that includes Andy Bernard and Dwight Schrute at loggerheads to see which one will be Michael's right-hand man. No wonder Tony decided to quit, but who could stay around when your boss, in trying to lift you onto a table, says "I'm in your crack!"
