TV Junkie: And Now, Time for a Very Special Episode of 'Parks and Recreation'
Like the deserts miss the rain we've been missing new episodes of NBC Thursday night comedies. After our "Attack of the Show!" fix (watch for our video interview with the charming Candace Bailey) we will be switching over to catch a new episode of "Community," who was feted at PaleyFest2011 a couple nights ago - see video of Danny Pudi and Alison Brie on yesterday's "Attack of the Show!". Yes, there will be new episodes of "Perfect Couples" and "30 Rock" also, but what we're really looking forward to is the airing of the "Parks and Recreation" episode that they previewed for us at PaleyFest2011 last week: "The Harvest Festival" event which was absolutely hilarious. Sebastian the miniature horse pictured to the right) is key to the episode so keep an eye on him. We are looking forward to your reactions to the episode either here or on Twitter (follow us at @TheTVJunkie). For more "Parks and Recreation" content, please check out our video interviews. [UPDATE: "Parks and Recreation" has been renewed for another season by NBC - congratulations to the cast and writers.]NBC is also scoring heavily in late night tonight at "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" will feature Howard Stern as a guest along with Penn & Teller, with Leon Russell performing.
What's this? MTV might actually have music as part of their broadcast offerings again? Say it isn't so but MTV is saying that they are bringing back "120 Minutes" with Matt Pinfield sometime "later this year" according to network executives. We used to be hardcore "120 Minute" devotees until the show deteriorated into just another metal showcase but for a while there, "120 Minutes" was the shit. Since they are bringing Matt Pinfield back to host we're assuming that MTV is attempting to lure back older viewers because what 18-34 year old wants to look at Matt Pinfield? We will be watching, so count us in.
