'Community' May Be Just a Figment of Joel McHale's Imagination (VIDEO)

'Community' cast - 'The Soup'With 'Community' airing its final scheduled episode this week (Save Greendale!), the cast stopped by to visit Joel McHale on 'The Soup' (Wed., 10PM ET on E!) with some startling news. When McHale asked why Chevy Chase wasn't with them, Ken Jeong told him, "There is no Chevy. He's a figment of your imagination."

Eventually, after Adam Scott and Nick Kroll joined them on set, it was revealed that not only were the pair of them also figments of his imagination, but so was the entire cast. Mankini explained: "This is just a delusion you created so you wouldn't have to face the face that you only work at E!"

Alison Brie chimed in, "If 'Community' were real, don't you think you would have seen a commercial for it on NBC?"

Ken Jeong's Parents Are Still in Therapy Over His Career Change (VIDEO)

Ken Jeong shows off his moves on 'Live With Regis and Kelly'These days Ken Jeong gets laughs as a comic actor, and occasionally by dancing, as he did Wednesday on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated), strutting his stuff to Maroon 5's 'Moves Like Jagger.' But that wasn't always the case: Jeong's original career path doctor. But he wanted to be in show business so badly that he started doing stand-up comedy and improv while completing his residency in internal medicine.

"And your parents were understandably devastated," said Kelly Ripa. "Yes," replied Jeong, "they are still in therapy getting over it right now. But now they get those thirty dollar checks every week, you know what I'm sayin', yo!"

Jeong used to include some medical material in his act, and said he surprised some on the 'Hangover' set with his knowledge, slipping out of character to give specific, detailed instructions to one of Ed Helms's sick friends over the phone. "Jaws dropped," said Jeong. But he went back into his goofy character voice, just to reassure everyone his focus was in the right place.

Isaiah Mustafa Cheers Up His Fellow Astronaut on 'Love Bites' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 24th 2011 3:21AM
Isaiah Mustafa, 'Love Bites''Love Bites' (Thu., 10PM ET on NBC) continues to be a fun diversion for summer, like a fluffy romantic comedy where you know every beat of the plot, but it manages to pull you along regardless. With it's anthology format revolving around a core group of characters and plethora of guest stars, it's reminding us more and more of 'Love Boat' each week.

This time around, we got a strange little story set up in space where somehow Ken Jeong is allowed to be an astronaut. More expectedly, he provided a little bit of comic relief as well. Eddie McClintock ('Warehouse 13') was convinced his girlfriend was cheating on him, but he learned that her picture was cheating on him as well with Jeong's character in the bathroom.

Community, Webisodes, Senior Chang, Chicken FingersHave you been waiting impatiently for 'Community' to come back? Well, the wait is over, my friends, because tonight at 8PM ET on NBC, there's a brand new episode with the titillating title, 'Contemporary American Poultry.'

It's a devastating tragedy when a chicken finger shortage grips Greendale Community College, but Jeff and Troy are on the job, which causes Britta to think about the causes she currently supports.

But, wait! If you just can't bear the thought of waiting until tonight to get your 'Community' fix, a couple of webisodes are currently online that are pretty freakin' funny.

Chelsea's Big Interview Special, Bradley Cooper, PenisBradley Cooper sat down to talk with Chelsea Handler on 'Chelsea's Big Interview Special' (Wed., 10PM ET on E!) , and the conversation naturally turned to penises. Specifically, Ken Jeong's penis on Cooper's neck in 'The Hangover.'

"Ken Jeong's penis on my neck was ... very normal," said Cooper. "Ken came up with that idea that day ... and I didn't realize it, but the part I play in that scenario, I get like, neck herpes from it."

You'd either have to be really good friends to pull this off, or never want to speak to or see each other ever again. The jury's still out on which category these guys fall into.

Watch the video after the jump.

'Community' - 'Communication Studies' Recap

'Community' - 'Communication Studies'
(S01E16)
Suddenly I want to spend at least 40 more minutes in the world of 'Community' after tonight's episode. I wonder if those 40 minutes will come back to haunt our dear friend later?

Jeff and Abed tore it up with one of the most bizarre drunk montages I've ever seen, culminating with Abed in the absolute best "aftermath" position I've ever seen. And Jeff did it all to try and make things right with Britta again. Try as they might, those two just can't seem to get their awkward feelings for one another to stop interfering with their relationship as "just-friends."

With the Valentine's Day dance looming, Troy and Pierce tried to regain some of their own dignity early in the episode, only to lose it completely by the end of it. Surprisingly, despite his "skills" on the dance floor, Chang either has no dignity to lose, or has so much that it's impervious to anything he does.

Review: 'Community' - 'Romantic Expressionism'

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 5th 2010 4:45AM
Alison Brie, 'Community'(S01E15) This episode would have been great for the scene where the study group looked around the room thinking of one another sexually. Without a single word, there was so much spoken with facial expressions and eyes and turns of the head.

I am glad we got more, though. Abed's 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' inspired movie nights reminded me of my own college experience. We used to do the exact same thing; it made 'Waterworld' and 'Battlefield Earth' instant classics. Unfortunately, we got into such bad habits that to this day I find myself mocking and ridiculing even good movies and TV shows.

Luckily, I'm a little quicker on the draw than Pierce. Kudos to him, though, for taking it the extra step and preparing for the next night. That's doing it 'MST3K' style, for real!

Review: Community - Investigative Journalism

Community: Investigative Journalism
(S01E13)
I'd like to give thanks to the Executive Producer Associate Supervisor Supervising Executive for being the man, or woman, behind the new semester at Community. When the gang returned from the break they discovered a new member in their group -- he snuck in during the group hug.

Jack Black basically plays one type of character, and that's who we got this week. There were some genuinely funny moments, but this definitely wasn't one of the stronger episodes of the series to date. With the community college setting, it's pretty easy to slip in a guest star here or there and even, as in this case, pretend they've been there the whole time. I just don't think it's necessary right now for Community.

Community: Comparative Religion
(S01E12)
The Christmas, er *ahem* the ... uh ... Holiday spirit hit Greendale Community College, and brought with it one of the funniest episodes of Community yet. It's the end of their first semester together, and Shirley decides to throw a Christmas party in the study group room. The only problem is, not everyone in the group is Christian. In fact, none of them are the same religion at all, and Pierce may be something else entirely.

What's more, Anthony Michael Hall showed up to bully Abed, and wound up having to face off against Jeff in a bully smackdown! The dilemma for the gang: show up at Jeff's fight or show up for Shirley's party. What to do?

Review: Community - The Politics of Human Sexuality

Annie's a unicorn! Well, sorta. Actually, it's more complicated than that. And after Annie explained things, I was even more confused.

Another solid episode; this show is really in its groove right now. The new relationship Jeff has established with Britta; the one without him trying to get into her pants every week, or her accusing him of it every week; is really working for me. I like this group more as a bunch of friends than a group of potential hook-ups. At least for awhile.

Pierce took center stage in one of the three stories juggled this week, revealing to Jeff that he can score a hot chick. Even better, challenging Jeff to do the same. Annie got involved in helping Greendale throw its STD Ball, which went as well as you'd expect. And Troy and Abed -- this may be the best comedy duo on TV since J.D. and Turk.

Review: Community - Environmental Science

Community: Environmental Science(S01E10) Hey, Jeff was kind of a selfish douche and then at the end he became a good person and did the right thing. Quick game: which episode am I describing?

I know I've complained about the predictability of this plot procedure in every episode, but for some reason it worked this week. Probably because even in the execution of it, you could see that Jeff had at least gained a sense of loyalty to his study group. In other words, he felt bad about what he was doing from the beginning. He still did it, but somehow that made all the difference.

I think the more shocking development was that Pierce offered to help Shirley with an upcoming speech she had to give, and she actually accepted. He also learned the "secret" to Jeff's power over the group, though I still think it's just confidence.

Joel McHale and Ken Jeong on 'Community' College Life

by Jenny Hollowell, posted Nov 18th 2009 5:30PM
Joel McHale in 'Community'Joel McHale and Ken Jeong are having a very good year.

Earlier this fall, McHale -- who was until now perhaps best known as the host of 'The Soup' -- appeared as an FBI agent in Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh's 'The Informant!'. Now, as disgraced lawyer Jeff Winger on NBC's critically-acclaimed new comedy 'Community,' he has the central role in that all-too-rare commodity: a truly "smart" network sitcom.

Review: Community - Home Economics

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 6th 2009 1:28AM
Danny Pudi(S01E08) Well, that ending was disappointing, wasn't it? Spoiler alert: the gag over the closing credits did not feature Abed and Troy. What were they thinking? Those were some of the funniest moments of the first seven episodes!

It was about time we saw the financial repercussions of Jeff having lost his license to practice law. There's a lifestyle that comes with being a big-shot lawyer, and it's not at all the same lifestyle of your typical college student. That's Abed's life, and we got to see that, as well.

Meanwhile, Annie tries and tries and tries to muster up the courage to talk to Troy about her feelings. The problem is, I think she's expecting him to put two and two together as long as she drops enough hints. But it doesn't look like math is one of Troy's strong suits. Or thinking, for that matter.

Review: Community - Introduction to Statistics

Community: Introduction to Statistics(S01E07) My wife bought me one of those giant weekly pill containers as a joke once. She even took my allergy medication and dispersed them across the different daily containers. Looking at it, though, made me think about that day in the future when I just might need to be taking a bin full of medication on a daily basis.

Granted this revelation that Pierce carries one of these around with him shouldn't come as a real surprise. His age is a huge part of his character. That, and the pills were a major part of getting us where we needed to go in this episode for Pierce's arc. And Jeff's for that matter, but then again Jeff is at the center of everything, isn't he?

Speaking of which, is he really all that charming and good-looking? Maybe I don't see it because I'm a straight man. So tell me, if you're not, would Jeff's best moves and lines work for you the way they were working on the teacher this week, or are you more resistant to his affectations, like Britta?
