'The Office': Pranks Between Jim and Dwight Reach a New Level (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 9th 2011 3:00AM
'The Office' - 'Christmas Wishes'Pranks took center stage during the holiday party on 'The Office' (Thu., 9PM ET on NBC). Apparently, the constant back-and-forth between Jim and Dwight has lead to a complaint from the new girl in the office, which lead to Andy making an ill-advised ultimatum.

The next person who pranks gets both of their bonuses. But all this ruling did was cause the pair to start pranking themselves, under the pretext that it's the other doing it. When Andy realized what was going wrong, he called off the threat but again made a boneheaded move by only telling Jim.

'Glee' Season 3, Episode 8 Recap: It's Sectionals Time! And the Winner Is...

glee season 3 hold on to sixteen['Glee' -- 'Hold on to Sixteen']

Say what you want about 'Glee,' but any show that can actually pull off an amazing 'Man in the Mirror' cover is OK in my books, and that's exactly what the New Directions did in 'Hold on to Sixteen. 'But it was more than just 'the Sectionals episode.' It actually gave me some hope for the rest of the season, hope that the writers had not forgotten about their characters.

Crazy Quinn? She's gone ... Hooray! It's been a rough few seasons with Quinn, but here's hoping that her crazy spell is officially over because I happen to really love Dianna Agron.

I don't know what I enjoyed more in this episode: Sam's anticipated return, the Troubletones awesome 'Survivor/I Will Survive' diva mash-up, the New Directions' Jackson family medley or Rachel and Quinn's surprising character developments.

But let's get back to Sectionals. It was a battle for show choir dominance, and in the end, only one glee club could advance to Regionals. And the Sectionals glory goes to ...

EXCLUSIVE: 'Supernatural' Gets Animated ... Sort Of

by Laura Prudom, posted Dec 1st 2011 10:00AM
'Supernatural' gets 'Mad'Apologies for the semi-misleading headline, 'Supernatural' fans -- sadly the show is not taking a page out of the 'Fringe' playbook and tackling a psychedelic animated episode; at least, not as far as we know. (Although there's always the anime series.)

But for those of you who take your Winchesters in 3D, 2D and heck, any way you can get them, AOL TV has an exclusive sneak peek at an upcoming 'MAD' episode, featuring Sam and Dean facing one of their most frightening foes yet: a teenage girl celebrating her Super(natural) Sweet Sixteen.

The parody airs next week (Mon., Dec. 5 at 8.30PM ET on Cartoon Network), but you can get a first look at the hilarious skit after the jump. Prepare to learn more than you ever wanted to know about Dean's taste in shoes ...

William Shatner Plays Juliet's Dad on 'Psych' (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Dec 1st 2011 8:10AM
William Shatner on 'Pysch'It was all about Juliet on this week's 'Psych' (Wed., 10PM ET on USA). Her 30th birthday was fast approaching and so the guys decided to broker a peace between Jules and her estranged dad, Frank. Who was played by William Shatner.

Frank's a con-man who is now trying to redeem himself after a lifetime of poor fathering. On a stake-out the cops can't risk calling in the SWAT team because civilians could get hurt, so what to do? Luckily Frank leaps into action: "I ... have an idea," he offers.

Frank's idea turns out to be pure genius and the bad guys are delivered right to the door of the police department. As Jules thanks him, Frank smiles and says "It was the least I could do."

Gloria Estefan to Play Santana's Mom on 'Glee'?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Dec 1st 2011 6:45AM
Gloria EstefanGloria Estefan is in talks to play Santana's mom on 'Glee.' How perfect a piece of casting would that be?! According to 'Entertainment Weekly,' Estefan will appear in the same January episode as Ricky Martin, who's reportedly playing McKinley High's Spanish teacher.

Martin is slated to headline two musical numbers in the episode, which will also feature Estefan's music and some other bilingual tunes. A source told 'EW' that the entire cast is "really really big fans of hers and we love her music and her husband's music."

This week on 'Glee' Santana came out of the closet only for her grandmother to disown her. However, Santana told her classmates that her (as yet unseen) parents were supportive of her coming out. So now the question is, if Glora Estefan is Santana's mom, then who's her dad?

Pitching Inventions to Andrew Dice Clay on 'Raising Hope' (VIDEO)

Andrew Dice Clay, 'Raising Hope' - 'Bro-Gurt'Andrew Dice Clay and Patton Oswalt partnered up to provide a memorable guest appearance on 'Raising Hope' (Tue., 9:30PM ET on FOX). Ultimately, it turns out Clay was little more than the Great and Powerful Oz to Oswalt's Wizard. Yes, it was as weird as that sounds.

The premise was simple enough: The family decided to try to create investments that Clay would endorse and help them take to market. But it turned out the entire thing was a scam, so nobody was getting a fast ticket out of their lives.

Coming Soon: The 'Flight of the Conchords' Movie?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 28th 2011 7:00AM
Time for 'Flight of the Conchords' fans to break out the animal sweaters and do the happy dance: Bret and Jemaine are headed to the big screen! Maybe. Star Bret McKenzie told 'The Hollywood Reporter' that "We're gonna try and do a movie. We just need a story."

McKenzie joked, "I'm gonna go back to New Zealand tomorrow, maybe film it next week. And then edit it the week after. I don't know how familiar you are with movies, but there's a lot of behind the scenes stuff that could take one or two weeks. And then, probably in about a month we'll have a premiere."

'Conchords' co-creator James Bobin, who's fresh off directing the new 'Muppets' movie, told StarPulse that he's game: "I'd love to do it. It's just a question of what it would be and when we would do it, but I'm sure because that's what I want to make happen at some point."

Rob Riggle Runs Crazy Over Brad and Dave on 'Happy Endings' (VIDEO)

'Happy Endings' - 'Full Court Dress'There are people we encounter in our lives who are great in those particular moments. But those are the only types of experiences we have with them, and it might be best to keep it that way, as Dave and Brad discovered the hard way on 'Happy Endings' (Tue., 9:30PM ET on ABC).

Short a guy for their pick-up game, they invited Brad's delivery guy Drew (Rob Riggle). He and Brad were totally cool in those brief encounters when Brad signed for a package. But when Drew got out on the court, he really freaked the guys out.

Claire's Cautionary Tale About College Backfires on 'Modern Family' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 24th 2011 1:30AM
'Modern Family' - 'Punkin Chunkin'While it's never been brought up directly, the Pritchetts are a rather cynical and dour bunch. The sight of Jay, Mitchell and Claire standing on the sidelines as the "dreamers" of their extended family attempted to "chunk" a punkin' through a goal post illustrated that divide beautifully on this week's 'Modern Family' (Wed., 9PM ET on ABC).

Not that their practicality is all bad. It's helped them all become successful people, and they do work to balance out the wilder sides of their partners. But it keeps them from experiencing the joys of life more regularly, and they've sucked at least one member of the next generation into their way of thinking.

Reagan Shows Chris Her 'Better' Ways to Do Things on 'Up All Night' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 24th 2011 1:00AM
'Up All Night' - 'Week Off'When Ava's show went on a forced production break for a week, it sounded like a great impromptu vacation for Reagan on 'Up All Night' (Wed., 8PM ET on NBC). She could kick back, relax and get to spend quality time with her baby. Sounds ideal!

Well not, apparently, if you're a bit of a control freak. When she's trying to make a smooth sailing ship out of the show, that keeps her occupied and apparently keeps her need to organize and make things "better" in check. Out of work, she's completely out of control.

A Break in the Case of Jonathan's Lineage on 'Bored to Death' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 22nd 2011 6:30AM
Stacy Keach, 'Bored to Death' - 'Forget the Herring'It was good news and bad news for Jonathan all night long on 'Bored to Death' (Mon., 9PM ET on HBO). First, the hot girl who hooked up with him to continue his search for information about his true father slept with him. That was great news.

Then, she proved to be a far more effective sleuth than him, as well as more savvy and focused in interrogation situations. All around, she was a pretty impressive woman. But they hit a seeming dead end when the sleazy former owner (Stacy Keach) of the sperm bank their mothers went to said he lost all the records. That was bad news.

Caroline Loses Her Holiday Spirit on '2 Broke Girls' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 22nd 2011 1:00AM
'2 Broke Girls' - 'And the Very Christmas Thanksgiving'It's always been hard to believe that Caroline could remain so relentlessly perky considering what the character's been through. This week, though, we finally got a glimpse of what losing everything and everyone she's ever known has done to her emotionally on '2 Broke Girls' (Mon., 8:30PM ET on CBS), and it was about time.

Now, I don't want Caroline moping around every week -- as that appears to be Max's job -- but she does need to work through these emotions from time to time at least during her first year as part of the working class. Kudos to her for taking a bad situation (can't afford new mixer) and turning it into a potentially winning one.

'Family Guy'Thanksgiving on 'Family Guy' (Sun., 9PM ET on Fox) brought a happy family reunion for Joe and Bonnie Swanson. They'd been mourning the death of their soldier son Kevin, but he turned out to be alive.

Kevin tells his happy parents that he'd been in a coma ever since his quarters blew up, but a suspicious Joe keeps finding holes in his story and pushes Kevin to admit the whole truth. "I never was in any coma. I bailed. I faked my death and went AWOL." That's when the police officer in Joe takes over: He slaps the cuffs on Kevin and prepares to take him in. Can Bonnie stop him?
