  1. Awesome! I just planned my week of TV watching right here…

    I’m especially excited for New Girl, Happy Endings and Community! Nick’s facial expressions are both one of the most ugliest and the most laugh inducing things on TV on a weekly basis. And I’m really interested in seeing where this whole Abed/Troy feud will be headed, and who will end up being on which side. Personally, Team Blanket!

    And reading the preview for the Ringer makes my head hurt…haha…

  2. Awesome! My PVR is set. I’m so excited about Nurse Jackie! didn’t realise it was coming back until I read this!
